advice - accidental gpa misstatement [#permalink] New post 27 Mar 2007, 10:37
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

I don't think it makes a difference either way, if you proactively call them and tell them about the mistake, or wait for them to possibly discover it and explain what happened -- don't think it will be an issue. I would probably call them and let them know.

I'd call and be upfront about it. Sounds fairly trivial.

I'm with rhyme on this one, in case you were looking for more votes.
