Can I round a 3.59 to a 3.6 on my resume

<p>3.59 just looks so ugly</p>

<p>Just don't write 3.60</p>

<p>3.59 to 3.6 would be fine.</p>

<p>What if I have a 3.48. Can I estimate that to 3.5? What if it's 3.46 or 3.47? HELL what if it's 3.45?</p>

<p>May be wrong here, but rounding to the tenths place should be fine. The only exception is if you're trying to round to a 4.0</p>

<p>I would just use the number provided in the official transcript.</p>

<p>I have a 3.477 and I was told by one of the career center advisors that I should just round up to a 3.5. Maybe it's just me, but for some reason, a 3.5 looks a lot better than a 3.477.</p>

<p>Just do 3.6. </p>


<p>I'm inclined to agree with BCEagle91. IMHO it's in your best interest to use whatever appears on your official transcript.</p>

<p>I would only use a 3.6 if you're applying for an internship or job that requires a minimum of a 3.6 (and they wrote 3.6, not 3.6000000) to apply.</p>

<p>3.59/4.00 = 3.6/4.0 = 3.59x/4.000 (last choice is typically not used on resume)</p>

<p>The only exception is that
3.91/4.00 = 3.9/4.0 yet
3.97/4.00 != 4.0/4.0</p>

<p>Why can't you round 3.59 to a 4.0? It follows the logistics of mathematics right? </p>

<p>Sarcasm :/</p>

<p>^You'd have to round it to a 4, and people would get curious why you only have 1 digit.</p>


<p>But can you then round the 4 to a 5?</p>

<p>^No... You're just being a jackass.</p>

<p>The problem with rounding is if they ask for your transcript and they note the rounding and the hiring manager asks why the prospective hire didn't just put down what the transcript said. It's always the safest thing to do because it is one thing that can ding you. The chances are that the hiring manager will round it anyways in their mind when they look at the number. I don't think that you really lose anything by using the exact number in your transcript.</p>
