Double major GPA report?

Postby Lxwind » Sat Sep 02, 2017 12:22 am

I did my undergrad overseas. My major was in international relations and I had a double major in psychology. The double major works more like a minor in my university, and I chose it just for fun. Since it did not affect my major GPA or anything, I did not really pay much attention to it. The transcripts are totally separate with all my courses for a B.A. degree listed under my main major (including all those electives) and 15-some psychology courses listed under my double major in a separate envelope. My IR GPA is 3.71 and psychology GPA is 3.3. I wonder if I have to report the psychology major, or could I report only my IR major? Thanks!!

Report all college grades prior to the award of the first degree. If dual degree was dual graduation, you're not going to get away with not reporting.

I probably went to the same school as OP. I have a double major in Econ. If you report it, it would not affect your evaluation. The double major would be listed but not evaluated.

This sounds extremely off. How did LSAC process your transcripts?

Also, neither of you will get a numerical GPA if you're at an international institution.

I just got my transcripts evaluated by LSAC and was in the same situation as OP. The evaluation was only based on my "primary major" (LSAC used this term). My double major was listed and had a average score. However, there is no evaluation for the double major.

I guess that is because the transcripts are separate, and the "instotutional GPA" includes only the primary major. In our school the double major is a completely different system. If you choose not to obtain the degree, you can just give it up and the courses would not appear on any of your official transcript or document. I know there will not be a numerical GPA, my concern was if the double major would downward my grade from S to AA.
