First semester GPA on resume?

Postby martin024 » Sun Jan 16, 2011 3:00 pm

Hey, all,

Sorry for this simple, probably obvious, question, but are we supposed to put our GPAs on our resume (assuming top 20%)?

Cheers

Rule of thumb per my Career Office, if above median you are encouraged to put GPA/Class Rank. If top third you should put your GPA/Class Rank. Below median = do not put GPA/Class Rank.
