Messed Up on Sent Application

Postby KME89 » Thu Jan 26, 2017 11:30 am

Alright, so I made a massive error and failed to list my major and GPA on some applications. I've since fixed the error and all is well for all the applications I have since sent out. Now the question is, do I go back and call attention to the error and ask for it to be updated at these schools? The missing information is all found on my resume, but if they're just sorting applications quickly, this could be a huge issue, right? While my uGPA is not the most impressive number, I also did not include the GPA for my graduate degree, which is impressive. Again, that info is also on my resume.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

You should be fine. All of this stuff should be listed on your CAS report

+1

I have been accepted to some great schools and I never listed a GPA on my school page (never realized how to do it until all of my apps were complete). It is all in the report, so it shouldn't matter.
