Applying for consulting jobs again this fall - I was a transfer student. My current uni GPA is barely above a 3.6, but if I incorporate my transfer gpa into my college GPA, it is a 3.7. Should I list a 3.7 on my resume as "cumulative GPA" or is that lying? Thanks.

I'd go off of whatever is shown on your transcript (unofficial is fine). As that's what they'd be using to confirm it anyways

You should list the GPA that UCLA gives you, I don’t think there’s that much difference between a 3.6 and a 3.7 anyway

Yeah, was wondering if that's ok if I just attach my CC transcript to my UC transcript when I have to submit

If you can support the number, use the higher one. You can submit both transcripts; I would be shocked if a recruiter cared.

I was a transfer. The idea of showing multiple GPAs my opinion is confusing, dumb, and driven by anal career services depts. Just calculate your cumulative GPA between both schools weighted by credit hour. I think that’s most simplistic, holistic, and fair.
