GPA CHANGE

Postby bissey » Fri Jan 29, 2010 3:36 pm

My GPA went up .04 after fall grade. Should I send schools an updated transcript? I feel like it's not significant enough to warrant an update, but what is the norm?

Sending in updated transcripts never hurts. I updated mine with a .05 increase.

You should send in updated transcripts, if only to reassure schools that your GPA didn't go down.

+1

Plus, it shows you're really interested in them.

Plus, maybe it will help your chances at a scholarship, especially if it throws up over any lines (like the 75th percentile at some schools).

Do I send an updated transcript to each school or upload it to LSAC?

Send it to LSAC, they'll forward it on to other schools. That will take a while though, so make sure you also notify schools by E-mail you're doing this.

Definitely send it in.
