Question for Rhyme [#permalink] New post 28 Sep 2006, 04:16
hey rhyme,

My Undergrad GPA is 3.0
The question is should I address it considering the fact that the class topper has a GPA of 3.2

Class topper? I dont understand. The highest person in your class had a 3.2?

In general, id say it depends on a few things

(1) Can you point to an increasing trend?
(2) Wahts the average for the school? Are you substantially below average?

why not put your range, such as top 3% of class, or top 5%

Yea, I mean, if a 3.0 is top 5%, theyll notice on the application. If it worries you, just mention it - "Although my overall GPA is a 3.0, I'd like to highlight that this is nonetheless in the top 5% of my class."

Thanks a lot Rhyme and Wilget.

Though we don't have a ranking system but unofficially I am 4th in the class.

That's a good idea to mention that I was in the top 3-5% in the class

well mention top 3, or top 5. I dont know if they like top 3-5%
just an idea.. maybe rhyme has some tip on that. I would mention 4th in the class.. that sounds more classy. like 4th rank out of 100
