Rounding off GPAs [#permalink] New post 19 Mar 2006, 07:31
Hello Paul,

I've applied to the weekend MBA program at Chicago. A simple question: Is it ok to round-off both my undergraduate and graduate GPAs in the application as follows:

Undergraduate GPA: 3.658 To 3.7
Graduate GPA: 3.5588 To 3.6

I have already rounded my GPAs in the GSB application, so I can't change it back to 3 decimal place but wanted your opinion whether this will have an impact on my application or give a wrong impression of my personality?

Thanks

Spiderman,

Rounding off the GPA is fine. and will not reflect negatively on you. You should state your GPA in the same terms (i.e., same number of decimal places) across the application for consistency.

Good luck!
