Transcript (Not a cheating question!)

Hi everyone,

My official transcript only lists cum GPA, which is significantly lower than my major GPA.
I listed my Major GPA on my resume (and made it clear that i was listing my MAJOR gpa), however, the official transcript makes no mention of major GPA at all.

How would you approach this problem? Just wait for HR to ask, or tell them in advance?

Thank you!

Wait for HR to ask if they have any questions. Just make sure that how you calculate the major GPA makes sense. Either use all business school classes or only use ones that count for your major (ie 6 Finance electives) apart from that do not pick and choose classes, because that will get you into trouble.

my school calculates major GPA as upper division courses that count towards your major. Let's just say I didn't have stellar grades for lower division due to my membership in a social organization. But once I became a junior i shaped up and have been consistently getting 4.0s for my upper division courses.

@General Disarray: No its not a whole letter grade, but pretty close to that amount.
