Self reported undergrad GPA on gmat score report [#permalink] New post 13 Oct 2010, 07:25
I realized recently that the self reported undergrad GPA on my GMAT score report is listed erroneously, probably a result of my eagerness to get done with the test. Basically, I converted my international GPA (out of 100) into a 4.0 scale and reported that. This is probably a bad thing to do since both systems are on different scales.
The question is: do schools looks at the GPA reported on the GMAT score report, or does the info in the application take precedence. I am guessing it does.
Also, should i try to get this corrected on the score report?

Thanks a bunch

Info. on app takes precedence. Plus, if accepted, schools will verify the transcripts.

I'm not even sure the schools get your GPA info. I think the GPA info you give is actually for internal use only (for example, comparing GPAs to GMAT scores). I don't think you'll have a problem.

I get the impression that if they do get/use the GPA info, it's for targeted marketing purposes.

They won't care about the GPA. If you're uncomfortable, go online and change it :)

I made the same mistake.. reported my international GPA to GMAT while signing up for the test...
The pdf score report from GMAT shows this optional information.... Damn!
