self reported info on gmat score [#permalink] New post 07 Jan 2010, 16:35
I took my gmat last week and recd the official scores today.
I see that the undergrad gpa (self reported) is printed incorrectly.
Is that going to create a headache for me (in terms of having to tell the schools how this error occurred)? Do schools see the self reported gpa from gmat score?
They will obviously see the actual gpa on the undergrad transcript.

Thank you for your suggestions.

We've had a discussion like that a while ago but I can't find it now.
I believe the outcome was that self-reported data is only used for Statistical purposes and is not verified by schools. Anyone has a better memory?

I also self-reported the wrong GPA. I under-listed it by a half-point because there didn't seem to be enough space for the second decimal. I think if you go to mba.com there's a way to change it, or at least set it so that it doesn't report your self-reported gpa. The first couple schools I reported my GMAT score to had the self-reported gpa, and somehow I removed it for the ones I sent later.

Regardless, when you fill out the business school application you have to give your undergrad gpa. I'm sure they don't even bother looking at the self-reported GMAT one. I didn't mention it to any of the schools I applied to and none of them seem to have cared.
