Huh? Firms get your transcript at OCI interviews anyway. I wouldn't put your GPA on there for OCI.
If we're talking about mass mailing, career services doesn't think we should put our GPAs on there, but I might, even if you're sending an unofficial transcript anyway.
I was going to do the same thing if I didn't get on LR. I think it's a fine idea, but I don't think it will matter much either way. I'm sure you saw the discussion above about GPA on the resume.
No, I haven't. I'm a rising 3L who has already gone through OCI so I don't keep track of the thread.
I think it's tacky putting your GPA on there for OCI purposes. Firms get a transcript and resume, and some request a writing sample at your initial interviews. They are already going to have your grades, and some firms, even when told not to, will look at your transcript during the interview in front of you.
Sorry, didn't mean to quote you there. The above discussion (maybe it was in another thread, too lazy to check) was about half and half split between your view and the opposite view, and a number of the posters were also upperclassmen IIRC. I'm not putting my GPA on my resume, but I do have LR. Given that at most other schools, as a far as I know, students do put their GPA on their resumes, I really don't think it's going to have an appreciable effect on the interviewers' perception, but given that they'll figure your GPA out shortly anyway, might be better to err on the side of caution.
