Advice - accidental gpa error [#permalink] New post 27 Mar 2007, 07:30
Hello,

I was recently offered admission at a great MBA program. Since getting in I have been doinng the logistics (fin.aid, transcripts, etc.). Yesterday, while randomly searching online I ran into a page on the schools application instruction page describing how to convert non-standard gpa's into the standard 0-4 system.

This is something I completely missed during my application process! I reported all gps's in their native format.

Although it does not effect my primary university grades it does effect grades from a study abroad program (makes it look like I did better then I did).

Should I call the University to explain? could this be grounds for a withdrawl of an admissions offer?

Thanks for your advice

You made a silly mistake, that is all.... do not give them a reason to withdraw the offer. If they really cared that much they would have verified the GPA themselves, so I would say just relax. Best of luck

Treefit,

An email explaining the mistake might be worthwhile, but it's unlikely that your study abroad grades played that large a role in your admission. And since your mistake was unintentional they would not rescind their offer because of it.
