3.38 vs 3.40

Postby bostonlawchick » Sun Jun 13, 2010 1:52 pm

Is a 3.38 much worse than a 3.40? I'm taking two summer classes right now, and getting A's in both would take me to a 3.4 exactly. I know I'll have an A in one, but the other one is not looking so certain. I'm debating dropping it because it's a ton of work that I don't have time for right now, because it's online and I work full time. I guess my question is, is it worth it to stick it out for the extra .02? Do schools really see a huge difference between these two GPAs?

For what it's worth, I'll be sending in my updated transcripts in December from next fall which should bump me up to at least 3.45.... but I really wanted to apply early to have a better shot.

I think no one is replying because it really just doesn't matter. Do what you gotta do, neither choice will really make a difference though. I will say, though, I would choose to do whatever got me a higher GPA
