Did you earn a degree from the CC? I attended a different school for my first year of UG and had a lower GPA there. I chose to list the school and dates attended but nothing else. They can see the GPA on the LSAC report.

I think it's ok to limit your education section to your degree-granting institution, but it does make sense to include your community college if this was one of those deals where you did two years there and two years at the degree-granting school. You also aren't required to list GPAs on your resume.

That said, this is a non-issue for applications. They're already going to have your complete educational history and won't be relying on your resume for it.

I know... I just obviously want to make my resume as appealing as possible and adding my CC seems to make it less so. I just want to be sure it’s not unethical for me to just list my degree granting school


Why would your CC make your CV less appealing?

Because my GPA is lower at my CC while it’s high at my degree granting school

Welp, should have read further up the thread. Yeah it's gonna be a non-issue because they'll have your complete record. Also the fact that your grades have improved is going to be a positive as adcoms review your app. List the schools, don't mention GPA's; that seems to split the difference.

fwiw I left my CC off my resume despite having gone for 2 years because I wanted more room for WE.

I don't think it matters.
