I have transferred my registration from a university to another (in the same country). As such, some of my courses which I have already taken in my first university were transferred for me. In my transcript, my new university assigns the letter “T” (stands for “Transferred”) for the courses which were transferred.

However, I noticed that in calculating the CGPA of mine, these “T courses” are considered to be an A, although I didn’t take A’s in these courses (Say, I took a C in German course, but its effect on my CGPA is the same as an A, not as a C, it increases my CGPA a lot). My question consists of two parts:

  • Is it wrong/bug by the transcript system to calculate it that way?
  • Let’s assume for the sake of it that it was wrong, should I notify the university, or should I just let it go?

I am currently in my junior year, studying abroad in another country. The advisor at this school told me that I was enrolled in 5 businesses classes. I had asked her to drop one of them because I didn’t need it and she said okay I will drop this course for you and you have 12 credits. I left her office and went on with my day and I came to find out later that she had not dropped my course and that I am still enrolled in 5 classes. The way the school works here is that you are unable to add/drop once that period is over.

Upset and frustrated, I went to her office and she said she can’t remember what had happened because she has too many students. She had told me that I can either take the course or fail it and it won’t affect my GPA. But on my transcripts it will say grade not available aka “F.” I normally take 4 classes at home and I do want to enjoy my time here, so I don’t know if I should take the “F” and explain what had happened to graduate school admissions office or just suffer and take the class that I don’t need toward my major. It will not affect my GPA whatsoever if I were to take the F it will just be on my transcripts.

I trusted my advisor that she dropped my course, had I known that she wouldn’t do it I would’ve done it myself. I do understand that I am at fault to for not checking it right after she’d done it, but by the time I found out it was too late. Thoughts?

I have been gradually working on qualifying for graduate school in occupational therapy since 2012. I have BA in Art Education with a GPA of 2.99 – I had depression twice and it effected my GPA; so I decided to upgrade it by taking courses, and the schools in Canada look at CGPA going back 60 credits. Now, even though I have been achieving A’s, my CPGA is only 3.2, as I can do courses part-time only. I have some discontinued courses in my transcript (then and more currently), and I am concerned about being judged for this. The advice I was given from an advisor was to take easy courses that I was also very interested in. I have not done any research yet, nor published anything, but am seeking to volunteer in a lab, and I will continue to work as a patient attendant in the sunmmer/holiday period (I have since 2010). Will these gaps in my transcript be held against me? I am 41 and truly want to become and OT and do research that makes an impact with healthcare providers. It is incredibly competitive to get into the professional MSc, let alone the combined MSc/PhD which is what I want to do. Is there any way to improve my profile? Thank you so much for any/all constructive feedback, I truly appreciate it.

I have an undergraduate GPA of 3.06, in Physics, with a minor in mathematics. I am interested in a Masters in Electrical Engineering, but most programs seem to want somebody with a GPA of 3.25. I feel like my GPA isn’t reflective of my current abilities at all, because I mostly partied a lot in undergrad, and now live a mature married lifestyle. I have been an Active Duty Army Officer for 8 years, and recently got a GRE of 166V 164Q 5.5AW, which I believe is much more in line with my academic abilities.

Is it worth applying to anywhere? If so, is there a general category of schools anybody could recommend? I don’t need funding as I have the full post 9/11 GI bill if that makes any difference.

My Gpa in Bachelors progamme was quite low (2.0 out of 4) However my GPA in masters degree is high, 3.8 out of 4.0. I currently live in Georgia and I am planing to do another masters program in Europe. can someone tell me what are the chance of being accepted in German or Dutch universities (As programs of my interest are mostly in those countries) I am worried about my low gpa in BC however I have some relevant work experience, training and other international diplomas, certificates.

I was in a Master’s of Economics program, one year completed, but got expelled due to my GPA dropping below what was needed. I was put on probation and was given one semester to pull up my average by getting an A in all three classes I was taking. But I only got an A in 2 of my 3 classes — I did not receive an A in my third class.

I have the option to apply for re admittance and will do so, but just in case I want to apply to other programs, perhaps as a transfer. If need be I’d apply fresh and start over.

In my new applications, should I explain my situation (life changes, job loss), or would it be better to not dwell too much on it?

I’m sure this question has been asked frequently. However, I’m an undergrad, currently finished my sophomore first semester. I have gotten Ds (twice currently, not in the same semesters) on my transcripts due to mental health issues and having not withdrawn before the drop deadline. However, I have retaken the first D and plan to retake the other as well under course forgiveness. They won’t be factored in my GPA but they will show up on my transcript. I just wanted to know how bad grades on transcript would affect my chances when will applying to MBA programs?
