Listed wrong GPA on accident..

Postby PersuasiveCharm » Fri Oct 14, 2011 2:47 pm

I listed the wrong gpa on accident under the education tab for my applications. It is off by .15 The law schools will get my actual transcript anyway, so is this going to hurt me? I listed it as .15 higher on accident because my transcripts weren't all in yet at the time and I couldn't check the actual calculations.

They're getting your LSAC GPA report anyways and will use that. If you're concerned, just send them an email update saying that your GPA is actually X.XX and that the one on your application is incorrect since you didn't have all the information at that time.

I would send them an email so they don't think you're trying to be (incompetently) dishonest.

Did you write "on accident" in the email? That sounds so strange to me.

It's not strange, but it is a common grammar error. The correct usage is "by accident".
