Dear Admissions Officer,
I have a question regarding my Document status. Under my document status it says "Please provide your cumulative GPA." I attend Union County Vocational Techinical High School in Scotch Plains, NJ and my school does not use GPA it uses QPA(quaility points average). So there is no way for me to provide a GPA. Thank for you taking your time and consideration into reading this letter.

Sincerely,

^yup So Idk im very scared... I still havent gotten a reply but I only sent that yesterday >_>.

    Don't stress it. They're closed on Sundays and today is Martin Luther King Day so I'm guessing they're closed today as well.

    Thats not why I'm worried. This is reason is that I dont know where my QPA and the classes from my school would fall into rutgers..

    I'm sure it will be okay since they must get many applicants from your school just like they do from mine (union high school). And isn't your QPA like other schools' weighted GPAs?

    Well I'm not sure but I'm positive Rutgers knows haha. Maybe you'll have to send your transcript instead of doing the SRAR?
  • jokerg908jokerg908 Registered User Posts: 52 Junior Member
    @cometstarg- No, QPA is basically a normal average..I guesss it would be like an unweighted GPA? For example, I take AP Chemistry and its worth 5 or 6 credits whereas regular chemistry which is also worth 5 or 6 credits would just count as the same...

    @emerica- I did the SRAR but Idk... >.>

    hey guys, I still haven't gotten a reply and I'm a bit worried. I feel like should tell my QPA(85.75) to compensate for my GPA although my QPA is unweighted =\.What do you think??
