GPA Rounding? [#permalink] New post 21 Aug 2013, 22:15
Hi everyone,

GPA of 3.285 is listed on my transcript. On my resume and applications, can I just list it as 3.3? Or will this rounding discrepancy between app/resume and transcript be ding-worthy?

Thank for your help!

I would put 3.29 so that there are no questions or bad impressions.
Applicants always try to make their applications look and sound better than they really are and the adcoms are always engaged in untangling and deconstructing these things, so even a small round-up may leave a bad taste. I would not think it is ding-worthy but why risk?
