Posting 2L grades and cumulative discretely?

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Jul 01, 2012 6:26 am

What do you guys think of posting my 2L grades and cumulative grades separately? I have a cumulative of around ~3.5 and a 2L GPA of ~4.0. I just realized that employers might see that and think I just loaded up on fluff classes, which I don't think is true. I did take some seminars/clinicals, but at least half my classes were curved. I was sure at first of putting my cumulative and 2L gpa to show that "upward trend," but now I'm thinking maybe not? Could such a large (good) disparity between cumulative and 2L gpa actually be a bad thing?

I'm obviously no expert, but on GULC's OCS one of the example resumes has the GPA field like this:

GPA: 3.51 (Spring 2002); 3.01 (Cumulative)
