GPA Typo On Application

Postby LionKillerBJJ » Wed Oct 12, 2016 3:00 pm

I committed a slight error when asked my GPA on the application from my degree granting institution. Should I call the school and let them know? It's like 0.09 points higher than it is in reality.

I'd e-mail them.

Email them. I'm sure they will notice a GPA of 11.00 or 13.00.

To be fair, I actually wouldn't e-mail them if you said 11/13 because then they would clearly be on notice that your self-reported GPA is wonkers. E-mailing is good just b/c it shows you're not trying to deceive them, IMHO.

Thanks guys. I sent the email today. It was actually a .11 disparity.
