Updating grades

Postby lalalawya » Thu Dec 09, 2010 10:08 pm

Should I send updated grades to the schools I have already applied to if my acculm GPA has gone up, but my GPA for this semester is lower than Spring semester? I know they look at GPA trends, but i don't know if they look at semester GPA's or acculm GPA's. Thanks!

If you LSDAS Gpa went up, you should update imo.
How much did it go up by?

Well, I am waiting for my "official report" from the registrars, but I think it's gonna be around .3 or .4...which isn't substantial but it takes me from a 3.39 to a 3.42 or 3.43..which sounds/looks a little better :). So just to clarify, you think that despite this semesters GPA being lower than last semesters GPA I should still update because my aculm has raised? Thanks for your help!

Are you serious on the math there OP?

Edit: not to be a dick. Simple mistake. But I think that gap is negligible.

Check the schools' medians you're applying to. Could save it for a letter of continuing interest. Otherwise in the end I'm not sure it will make too much of a difference.

Sorry about being a dick above.

Well thank you for your apology! But don't worry, I wasn't offended...it was a stupid mistake on my part : ).
