View Full Version : Major GPA



Stumped
August 30th 2005, 07:48 PM
My school does not have a method listed for calculating major GPA as far as I know (have checked catalog, transcripts, and website).

I've noticed a lot of companies (especially recruiting firms) want a major GPA listed. Should I leave it blank or just calculate it myself? If my school does not have a method for calculating it, should I just use:

a. All classes listed under the math department
b. All classes listed under the math department required for graduation
c. Or what?

Generally, an overall GPA is submitted. I'd use that, and if your classes in math-related classes (your major GPA) is higher, then submit that as well.
