incorrect GPA in official score report :( [#permalink] New post 08 Oct 2009, 01:51
hey guys,

i took my GMAT on Oct 1. Got a 720 (V40, Q49, AWA 5). The problem is that in the optional test taker information, i have reported a GPA that is incorrect which now appears on the Official Score Card.

THe reported GPA is extremely low and would not even warrant a second look at the GMAT score card if the schools notice it (the low GPA). To add to that, GMAC has already made my score report available electronially to the 5 instis i had chosen to apply.

I have spoken to GMAC to remove the GPA so that the new report that'll be sent to schools henceforth would have a blank against the GPA.

what do i do for the 5 instis to which the Score Report with the incorrect GPA has been sent?

What options do I have?

On the applications, there should be some contact info if something in a submitted app is incorrect.

Don't contact the school unless you have submitted an application.

On the contrary, my official report card shows an incorrect GPA of 4.0 :P , and the effect is that my mail-box is full with mails from all the top-ranked schools.

No, because your score has already been submitted. The system should *not* allow you to re-send to the same school for the same score, but if it does, you'll just be donating $28 to the GMAC for doing nothing.

I wouldn't worry about it too much.

What is the importance of the GPA on the score report? Do schools use this as their main source of your GPA and your official transcript as just confirmation?

You can change your GPA online if you are really worried about it. The only thing it may (or may not) affect is what bigoyal was talking about - it may affect the amount of stuff you get from schools inviting you to apply.

The school will get your GPA from the application and they require your transcript anyway. They will not go back to look at an unofficial GPA from your GMAT report.

Since this information is optional information (self-reported by applicant) I doubt if the b-schools take this seriously, accept for sending information emails to appropriate candidates.

Hi,

I have also done the same mistake. My query is, if I provide the correct GPA when I will appear for the GMAT for the second time, then in the latset official report the correct GPA would be reflected (along with the previous score and current score), right? Please confirm.

Regards,
Joy

Yes, you will have a chance to report the GPA again and it will be corrected on the official report.
