Today I found out my university incorrectly calculated my GPA. The threshold for the Ph.D. scholarship was 2.69, and I had a 2.68, so I did not get the scholarship. My new GPA is 3.34. FML

Their mistake cost you money (assuming a lot of money since it's for college) so you should attempt to get them to rectify the situation and if they refuse you should sue.

Let's just take the benefit of the doubt and assume "you people" is directed towards the intelligentsia and university academics who miscalculated your scores, as opposed to on ethnic stereotyping...

It’s capitalism’s fault, not yours. Self-righteous indignation is a product sold to the proletariat to divide them into factions and prevent them from uniting and seizing the means of production from the bourgeoisie!

There was probably a deadline and more applicants than scholarships, so he's missed out on the money. Only thing you can do is try to pressure the university somehow, maybe lowering your fees or free accommodation or like ANYTHING at all as they fucked up. However, could you not calculate it yourself (at least roughly) based on your grades. Such a big difference should've clearly popped out easily?
