Graduate schools used to look down on GPAs higher than 4.0 and so they will deflate them; some faculty have argued that there is no such thing as a perfect grade therefore A+ not necessary

Some students get the disadvantage of an A- but not the benefit of A+. Some teachers apply A+ to 98-100 but this system will benefit those who go above and beyond.
