    Im not sure im following how he is valedictorian despite actual grades if they are saying his GPA is a smidge higher.

    I am curious, how did he get a grade from a dead teacher and a someone who doesnt go there? that does make things suspect.

    Also why on earth are janitors grading tests?

    Does sound a bit suspect. Nine instances of newly discovered extra credit? How is that possible?

    It seems like they really wanted to give it to this other kid. why on earth did they? Whats the real story behind this? I mean why did they even try to hand calculate the GPA after Ross had a higher GPA both of the initial counts.

    Regardless i think we may have a future Al Gore on our hands here. Recount till you win.
