Forward additional grades if they dropped slightly?

Postby jrobby6 » Fri Apr 23, 2010 9:26 am

I've been waitlisted/ put on reserve at a boatload of schools. Last semester, after averaging a cum gpa of 3.47, I received a 3.34. Thus dropping my overall cum gpa to a 3.45. So, would it be wise to send a school that.I am really interested this info? I do attribute the drop to external factors (working, thesis, etc) and I understand there shouldn't be any excuse. Any insight?

No. Won't help you at all since your grades didn't improve, and you didn't even do that much worse so it won't come back to bite you when you send them your official transcript if you get accepted.
