Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
My GPA from college is 3.82/4.0 and my grad school GPA is 3.67/4.0. Should I be concerned that my grad GPA is less than my under grad GPA? Should I explain it in the optional essay or not draw attention to it? _________________
Well, something admissions at a variety of schools keep saying is "we on the adcom have great imaginations, so if theres some peculiarity in your application, who knows what well think of to explain it"
I'd say if you do have a legitimate explanation for why it's lower, go for it. If you don't have much of a reason and you'd just be making excuses, then that's something different.

They're both over a 3.5. There's nothing to explain. I think you're imagining a red flag where there isn't one. _________________
Thanks everyone for the reply. I was reading the Paul Bodine book and he specifically stated that if your grad GPA is lower than your undergrad GPA, you may have to explain it in the optional essay. But it looks like in my case its best not to draw any attention to it. _________________
