Cornell Average GPA is 4.01, is this out of a 4.0 scale (Unweighted)?

According to the PrepScholar website, the average GPA for a Cornell student is a 4.01. Is this grade weighted or unweighted? This seems a little strange to me because according to the PrepScholar website, other schools such as UCLA have higher GPA requirements than Cornell, which is Ivy League.
