Quick question. I did 1 year at community college and 2 years at a university. When I transferred, the university gave me credit for the transferred classes but didn't count the grades.

My community college GPA is 3.7 and University is 3.3. Can I weight-average the two for a cumulative GPA?

nk7350,

Do you mean, can you weight-average for the purposes of the data section of your application, your essays, and your resume? I would say, yes, you can given that the university gave you credits. But if the transcript from your university shows a 3.3 then adcoms will note the discrepancy. If the transcript does not express a cumulative GPA then you may be OK. To be on the safe side, somewhere in your app, probably the educational data section, you may want to note that the GPA you're giving combines both schools.

Another, simpler solution is to contact your target schools and ask them what they want you to do.

Good luck,
