Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
If I have taken classes for credit at another university but the grades dont appear on the transcript at my university, will I still need to provide transcripts from all other universities as part of admissions into a phd program?
Edit: at one school, I did independent study and took 9 credits. At another, I did summer classes and have 9 credits as well. Since the grades didn't transfer, I was only aiming to pass. Needless to say, my grades ended up being Bs and Cs for those classes. I was allowed to take them because they weren't classes towards my major or anything quantitative. Those grades don't reflect my ugrad and current GPA. So do I need to disclose those grades? If so, will it be overlooked if I have a good story for it?
I believe common wisdom is that, barring EXTREMELY significant events, don't explain anything if your GPA is in a general upward curve, the steeper the slope the better.
If you're planning on applying for Fall 2009, you still have time to focus on improving other aspects of your application, as GPA is not the be all and end all of the PhD application process. GMAT, LOR, SOI, research experience if any... all of these most likely have even greater effects.
