When self-reporting GPA, do I take into account mid-year reports?


<p>If they are finalized, yes.</p>

<p>Wooh! Just got a .05 boost. </p>

<p>I would speak to your school about it. The last thing you want is your self reported gpa and your counselors gpa to not match up.</p>

<p>@slights32‌ Do GCs submit their own GPAs? I thought they just had to verify everything on a student’s app was true, not submit their own info.</p>

<p>GC’s do submit GPA’s. However, the Secondary School report asks for the time frame for the GPA calculation. If you are reporting through December/Jan, and your GC is reporting through last June, and therefore the GPA’s do not match up, it’s not a big deal. That said, if you are reporting your mid-year GPA, it should match the mid-year transcript, </p>

<p>But do GCs check your common app to verify everything is correct?</p>


<p>@skieurope‌ SO what prevents students from lying about ECs etc?</p>

<p>Nothing. The application is basically on the honor system.</p>

<p>However, as Yale Dean of Undergraduate Admissions [Jeff</a> Brenzel](<a href=“http://yaledailynews.com/blog/2009/01/16/no-choice-on-scores]Jeff”>No choice on scores - Yale Daily News) says: </p>



<p>To me, it’s not worth the risk.</p>
