Undergraduate GPA on resume?

Postby Anonymous User » Thu May 17, 2012 1:42 am

Good grades at T14 law school, mediocre 3.2 at a state undergrad. Law school doesn't let us put law GPA on resume for OCI. Should I list my meh UG GPA? I don't really want to, but I also don't want employers to think it's south of a 3.0, either. Thoughts?

Do not put that on your resume.

This. I think the rule is that you only have it on your resume if it's worth being on there. Usually above a 3.85 is what i've heard.
