Shouldn't matter but I would list the 3.9

3.91 seems a little to "try hard" to me

1/26/12

3.douche/4.00 would be optimal.

1/26/12

troll.

1/26/12

gpa is all relative. What's the school and major? A 3.9 english major out of SUNY Albany, I'd wipe my ass with that but a 3.91 engineering major from MIT I'd shake his hand.

1/26/12

this is completely stupid.

1/26/12

3.91

Why put a lower GPA than the one you have?

1/26/12

3.9 could just as easily be a 3.86. I would put down 3.91.

Agreed...if I see a gpa listed with only one decimal place, I assume that it has been rounded up.

Impossible is nothing

I'm surprised you're not rounding that up to a 4.0 I mean what could possibly go wrong

1/26/12

OP, just stick with 3.91, you will not be punished for greater specificity. IlliniProgrammer is correct, why leave any ambiguity between a 3.86 and a 3.91?

You're in a competition and, however marginal it may be, you shouldn't handicap yourself because idiots on a site say otherwise.

Well, for starters, YOUR knowledge of elementary mathematics.

1.7 or 1.71?

"3.9 could just as easily be a 3.86. I would put down 3.91."

^ I don't think anyone would round a 3.86 to a 3.9. But, I have seen 3.785's and the like rounding to a 3.8, for instance.

Well, there have been people that have posted in the past about rounding a 3.0 to a 3.8 so I don't see why there aren't a few people that would take a 3.86 to a 3.9, at least that is technically correct if you only go to tenths.

Just go ahead and round it to 4.0 bro -_-

1/26/12

round to two decimal places

1/26/12

ridiculous.

1/26/12

I approve of this thread

1/26/12

How about 3.91000?

1/26/12

In all seriousness, put 3.91. As before, 3.9 could be interpreted as "this guy rounded up." Put 3.91 and if you round out at all just put 4.0.

Equities are for chumps.

1/26/12

3.92 -- go ahead and pad a little.

1/26/12

THIS IS A RETARDED FUCKING QUESTION

1/26/12

This is not a real question.

'We're bigger than U.S. Steel"

1/26/12

Why not 4/4?

1/26/12

3.91 / 4.0... fuck significant figs, like a boss

1/26/12

This is a joke right?

XX

1/26/12

What's wrong with rounding a 3.851 to a 3.9?

1/26/12

What would you do if your GPA was 3.9999999999999999999?

People still list GPAs on resumes? wtf? dude you need to start listing more relevant things like MPH (an estimation of how fast you can run, do NOT round this number)....also things like TPS (texts per second), WPBV (women per bar visit....please don't include drunk women in this metric...thats like listing only a major GPA on your resume...shit is misleading).

America still uses miles to prove a point; kind of like beating someone in golf while taking a handicap.

1/28/12

Why would you list the lowest of the two..

1/29/12

I don't understand why so many people are bashing him for asking this question. It's a legitimate question and he's looking for an answer.

My college lists my GPA with three decimals - and that's exactly what I put on my resume. To OP: Be as specific as possible.

Pro tip: As someone who reviews resumes, if you bring that three decimal bullshit into my house, you're not getting an interview.
