Yet another GPA question

<p>In the part of teh application where it asks you to input your GPA and rank, not your transcript, but the secondary school report, can you incorporate summer classes and college classes into your GPA because Harvard says you can even if it is not school policy?</p>

<p>I mean, can you tell your GC: "Harvard says you can" ?</p>

<p>Ask your GC, don't ask us. If Harvard lets you, then the only thing that would stop you is your particular school's policies, which we don't know.</p>

<p>He wants to know whether Harvard allows it... so if his GC says otherwise he can insist on it.</p>

<p>Oh, right, I see. I'm almost positive they don't allow it- do you have any sources that suggest otherwise?</p>

<p>Oh ok, that's interesting. I have no idea myself, I'd like to know also along with the ScrewedHopeful. I'm sorry if I sounded a bit rude, Admiral. :)</p>

<p>No, you didn't at all, don't worry.</p>

<p>Still, you can see for yourself on the admissions FAQ:</p>

<p>They never mention incorporating those classes into GPA. I've never heard of anyone doing this, actually, and it seems a little strange- the GPA represents classes you took at that school. I'm almost certain (99%) they wouldn't allow it- the GPA is supposed to be calculated by the school, and it would be very misleading if a high school transcript had a GPA that was not influenced by a class that is never mentioned on the transcript. You might be able to send additional transcripts from college classes etc.- use this chance to let them know your grades from those classes.</p>

<p>But my answer is an almost certain no.</p>

<p>Yeah probably, but I once saw a page on a UC website that said you can add college classes/ summer classes when you are calculating your GPA.</p>
