While on the topic of GMAT score reports, I am facing a rather difficult issue - I recently noticed that the undergraduate GPA in my GMAT score report is misreported (I dont know how - some error perhaps? ) Do schools look at the GPAs from the GMAT score report or from their application forms ? - the two will surely not match. Should I let the schools know about the error?
GMAC said they cannot help in this issue as the score reports have already been sent to the schools.

The schools will look at your GPA from the applicaiton.
The GMAT asks you to convert the GPA in 4.0 scale and that does not give a true representation of the academic abilities of the student.
You will be asked to attach your transcript too in your application and the school will consider that.

You will self report the GPA and show transcripts. Ignore anything reported with the GMAT as that won't be relevant. Good luck and reach out if you want any help with your applications!

Best,
Scott

I'm finding it extremely frustrating as well. According to the table provided there, my GPA comes to a measly 2.3 when converted to the table.

Your transcripts from the schools will be more important, and the schools can check from there. Try not to let the error bother you too much so you can stay focused with the application packages.

Wish you all the best!
