Admissions Advice

My GPA has been updated since submitting. Is this a problem?
Answered

Hello. I recently submitted all my Regular Decision applications. The latest GPA I had at the time of submitting was a 98.13, which included my summer courses and a single-semester course from my senior year. However, counselor has not sent any of my documents yet, and on Friday, my transcript updated. The GPA on my new transcript is a 98.11, as it includes my first-semester mid-year grades. Is this a problem, since the GPA that I submitted does not match the GPA on my transcript?

Hello @vica!

Just like @Anonymous123 said, this is a minor change of GPA. Both of these GPAs would be considered a 4.0, so there is no relative harm that can come from not updating the grades that you sent. But just to be safe, you should contact the admissions office (preferably by calling the help desk or emailing) and let them know why the slight change in your grade. If anything, they will be pleased that you took the initiative to let them know about the updated grades. Although the grade improvement won't make or break the admissions package, it will let them know that you care about the college (you took the time to contact them). Better safe than sorry!

Hello, email the school. If you want or not, it doesn't matter; keep up the fantastic work. You will be fine; I wish you the best of luck.

Hi @vica!

This is a very minor change. Just email the admissions (to be on the safe side) stating the reason for the difference. They won't object to it because of a change in the hundredth place.

Hope this helps!
