Brief GPA Question

Rank: Chimp | 15

Hi Monkeys,

I'm new here and excited to be a Chimp. I'm sure there are many GPA threads already; however, I have a brief question as I am updating my resume. Is it acceptable to round a GPA up? For example, I have a 3.79 overall--is it reasonable to state on my resume that I have a 3.8 overall? I know it's a little petty thing but I'm not sure how many digits is typically recommended.

Any help is much appreciated!

Fair Winds,
Mike

Not acceptable. You should hold off on sending that resume out until your GPA is at least 3.8014.

In all seriousness, yes of course it's acceptable.

Usually, you can round up to 0.5, meaning the max allowed is a 3.75 to a 3.8 or a 3.55 to a 3.6... and so on.

My guy, just fucking out 3.79. What is the fucking point in rounding that bitch up? Ain't nobody got dinged ever for .01 GPA.

Irrelevant to your question, but it kinda looks like your profile pic is actually a photo of you.

I'd advise changing that.

Was thinking the same thing.. maybe even consider taking your first name out of your user name
