What happens on making a mistake in Self Reported Transcript?

I just found a mistake in my Wharton Transcripts.

How critical will it be? Should I request them now for updation? Or Should I notify them at the time of interview? Do they look at it closely before giving the interview invite?

Welcome to my world. I didn't make a mistake as such, just forgot to add some relevant information which is required to calculate my GPA. The ad-con of the school in question said 'Not to worry. If we need a clarification, we will call you. But we cannot accept additional material at this point'. So I've just forgotten about it. A word of advice: Don't look at the app after you've submitted (until you get the interview invite of course). It's poison I tell you, poison.

Yes you are right! I am having nightmares about it.

But what exactly happens in such a case? Do they ask for an explanation or just revoke the admit (if admitted)?

I think it depends how blatant it is. If you put down A's for a bunch of classes you got C's in and inflated your GPA by 0.5 then they might revoke their offer. If you got a B- and put a B for one class or the name of the course wasn't 100% accurate I dont think they will take back admissions.

The number of Credits in a course was 2 and i have depicted it as 3, but the grade I recieved in that course was below my average GPA. So, actually this mistake is showing my GPA for that particular year lower than it actually was. Also, I by mistake interchanged the GPA for the first and second year. How will this one affect?

It's good that you're being upfront with your mistake. I wouldn't worry too much about it so long as you've brought it to their attention.

Do you think asking them at this stage would make a difference?

I got a reply from the ADCOM and am relieved now. It sys it will have no effect on the admissions decision.

Thanks for your views guys....
