Since then, I’ve heard they changed the rules so that only three AP/IB classes count as toward one’s GPA each semester (I think the parents of all the mediocre children started whining that the old way was too competitive), and its entirely possible they’ve changed the rules again since. Other schools have completely different systems for calculating GPA: some count AP classes the same as regular classes, some give you a different GPA depending on whether you got an A+ or an A-, and some don’t even calculate GPA. You can see why I can’t give you a specific number to aim for – without knowing more about your school it’s impossible. If you go to a school that regularly sends some seniors to the Ivy League each year, then you should find them and ask them what their GPAs were. If a certain GPA worked for them, it will probably work for you in two years. If you don’t go to a school that regularly sends kids to the Ivy League, then you probably need to be the valedictorian or very close. I know that sounds tough, but thousands of kids do it every year. If you are willing to sacrifice all your free time, you probably can, too. 🙂
The process was completed in 27 BC when the Roman Emperor Augustus annexed the rest of Greece and constituted it as the senatorial province of Achaea .  Despite their military superiority, the Romans admired and became heavily influenced by the achievements of Greek culture, hence Horace 's famous statement: Graecia capta ferum victorem cepit ("Greece, although captured, took its wild conqueror captive").  The epics of Homer inspired the Aeneid of Virgil , and authors such as Seneca the younger wrote using Greek styles. Roman heroes such as Scipio Africanus , tended to study philosophy and regarded Greek culture and science as an example to be followed. Similarly, most Roman emperors maintained an admiration for things Greek in nature. The Roman Emperor Nero visited Greece in AD 66, and performed at the Ancient Olympic Games , despite the rules against non-Greek participation. Hadrian was also particularly fond of the Greeks. Before becoming emperor, he served as an eponymous archon of Athens.
Societies show variable acceptance of polygamy as a cultural ideal and practice. According to the Ethnographic Atlas , of 1,231 societies noted, 186 were monogamous; 453 had occasional polygyny; 588 had more frequent polygyny; and 4 had polyandry.  However, as Miriam Zeitzen writes, social tolerance for polygamy is different from the practice of polygamy, since it requires wealth to establish multiple households for multiple wives. The actual practice of polygamy in a tolerant society may actually be low, with the majority of aspirant polygamists practicing monogamous marriage. Tracking the occurrence of polygamy is further complicated in jurisdictions where it has been banned, but continues to be practiced ( de facto polygamy ).
