    Good luck. You have a better chance of finding out who was on the grassy knoll and where Jimmy Hoffa is buried.....
    In all seriousness, he has chosen not to reveal his grades at either Occidental and Columbia to where he transferred as well as his law school grades at Harvard.
    For what it's worth, he did not graduate Columbia 'with honors" so his GPA was less than a 3.3 but he graduated law school magna cum laude.

    His GPA was high enough to warrant admission to Harvard Law School, where he graduated second in his class.

    I don't think that's correct. Magna cum laude is second-tier honors, not second in the class. If he was second in the class he would have been a Summa.

    Romney was valedictorian at BYU (undergrad). Not sure about his Harvard Law placement (I think he was top third), but he was a Baker Scholar at Harvard Business School (top 5%). Quite an achievement when you consider that he was doing them both at the same time (he was one of 15 that earned the dual degree out of the 800 in his business school class and 550 in his law school
    class).

    oh do tell. This should be good.

    Maybe Obama killed Kennedy? Maybe Obama was the 5th Beattle? This is so exciting!

    The median for incoming students at Harvard Law is about 3.75 so Obama's estimated 3.3 is probably not the key to his admission.

    Go ahead and elaborate...

    You asked the question. If you felt this way in the first place, why post the thread looking for answers then when you get a answer... ask another question. A ploy to arrange another Obama thread?

    If it was a 3.3, thats not even really a eye-popping number.... why would someone pave the way for a "little above average" GPA like this?

    Why can't we see the real numbers? We've seen them for every other Presidential candidate?

    Is it required to become president? What would it prove at this point? Ask Einstein what his GPA was :rolleyes:.... sometimes its not all about the GPA for they don't gauge one's ability to think.

    This is kinda like when "windy-hair" Donald tried to make him look a certain way about releasing his birth certificate.... he released it and he had nothing more to say.

    We should force him to show his grades. Presidents don't deserve "Privacy" protections when it comes to information like this.

    Bottom-line is, someone needs to MAKE him answer the question,

    "Mr president, why haven't you shared you college grades with the voters?"

    Don't answer the question with a question.

    Why won't he share his grades with the people he is accountable to?

    Kenyan Terrorist schools don't grade on the 4.0 scale. Its how many "Prophet Muhammads" you can get.

    According to Al Qaeda's Database (redundant, I know) Obama graduated Terror High with an eye popping 17 Prophet Muhammads. He double minored in Socialism, and bringing down 'whitey'....



    Meanwhile, Bush was banging 7 gram rocks....and thats true vulture.

    No it was not. There was no evidence. But, of course, God forbid actual evidence be involved with anything the Left does. Like Solyndra.

    No, less than a 3.3 or he would have graduated with honors.

    It's okay. We can't expect a leftie to possess reading comprehension.
