3.297 is 3.30 for all practical purposes...it will not matter if your GPA is off by 0.003 out of 4 (0.075%) coz I think any standard deviation in GPA would be greater than that number. Yeah, I know it sound stupid. Go figure. :P

most schools ask for 2 decimal points, so round to the nearest hundredth. So 3.30 (since 3.297 rounds to 3.30)
