ok the following is my opinion only:

those in columbia who get admitted with 2.9 GPAs also probably are/have one of the following:

- The dean's daughter
- an 800 gmat score
- a nobel prize winner

You can average your JC GPA with your University GPA to come up with your 4 year GPA. But most schools (at least the ones I've applied) ask for your 2 year GPA (which would be 2.7)

Thanks for your advice on the matter guys.
I would also think that a school would want to know your overall GPA, hence all four years.
Bossman- if you don't mind sharing, which schools did you apply to?
Thanks.

well you can put overall GPA, and average the two or whatever. but they probably will also have a record of your transcript.
