How much does 0.01 matter?

Post by Hene » Mon May 25, 2020 6:45 pm

I currently have a 3.88 GPA, just 0.01 below CLS and NYU's 75 percentile GPA, and UPenn's median. I am a senior graduating in August. Would it be worth it for me to take a number of online community college classes just to push my GPA to 3.89 to maximize my chances at these schools? Thanks!

No. It would require too many classes, and would be too little benefit. You’ve got a great GPA, enjoy the summer!

don't think it'd matter, your gpa shouldn't keep you out anywhere including hys imo.

It would not be worth it for you to do that.
