Resume submitted with app: Major GPA or Cumulative GPA? Context: My major GPA (aka final two years of business school courses) is 3.57 however my cumulative GPA is 3.20. Am I obligated to list both or is only listing my major GPA satisfactory? The reality is that I started undergrad at 17 and was an immature kid who goofed off his first couple of years prior to pulling it together when I started taking my major courses so I want to make sure that is clear. Note: I also have a 720 GMAT.
