Comment from Yale University Admission Officer wrote:

I strongly suggest not to use convert percentage score to GPA using any of the formulas. When student asked about converting percentage to GPA, Yale University Admission officer , resopnded

No need for you to convert. We ask for your gpa and also the scale. You would just report the 78 and a scale of 10

In the graduate school application, you will find

* What is your GPA:
* Scale :

If you have 77% then you will need to fill the application

* What is your GPA: 77
* Scale :100

Well you need to divide your score by your toppers score and multiply it by ten. It is as simple as that :). It is important that your letter of recommendation for universities are good to get an admit for sure

All,
I am facing this Percentage to GPA dilemma myself and after having spoken to a professor in Ivy league, I learnt that a <3.5 could be risky as it brings down the average of the entering class. I reached out to the school to find out how my 78%, and being in the top 5 in a class of 60 would be normalized to a GPA but haven't heard back. There are no grades on my mark-sheet, so all one can know is that it is an Honors degree from a certain university in India. Looking at some conversion formulae on Internet, my GPA can go as low as 2.9, which I personally feel is inaccurate.
Should I try to explain my position on percentage and all in the optional essay? Earlier I was thinking of explaining a recent job switch, the only one in last 7 years, in the optional essay. Can I explain two things in the optional essay - % and job switch?

Thanks a lot for your help.
