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
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.
