So for a variety of reasons, my GPA has been less than stellar recently and has dropped to near 3.0 (was actually about 2.85 before this semester.)
After remotivating myself, I did really well this semester and have a 3.86 for this semester. However, I was unaware that one my classes (a senior seminar) was going to have a grade of IP until I finished my thesis, which probably won't be until sometime in February/March.
With that class added in, my cumulative GPA would be 3.000. Without that class, my cumulative GPA is 2.989. My major GPA is somewhat higher, around a 3.3. Do you think that admissions committees will round that up for my application? A lot of schools *'m applying to have minimum requirements of 3.0, and I'd be pretty pissed if my application was immediately filtered out because of 0.011 grade points.
