The ‘Snark cannot help but be flattered…. Someone actually reads this blahg?? It seems that maybe they do.
After our rake-’em-through-the-coals diss-on-Columbia week — an intrepid Brave Supplicant informs us today that COLUMBIA CHANGED ITS POLICY!
No longer do you international BSers need to jump through hoops of stress to figure out what the GPA equivalent of your undergrad record is.
Please note the change in policy. Applicants should report their grade point average as it appears on their transcript. Applications already submitted for the 2012-13 application cycle using GPA’s converted to the 4.0 scale are also acceptable.
Perhaps it’s just a coincidence and had nothing to do with our rants…. but changing a policy mid-cycle like this is unheard of.
This is definitely a step in the right direction!
All you BSers now have one less thing to stress over: No more grade conversion nonsense!
Of course, you still have so many other things to stress over… like, how’re those essays coming? 🙂
No, we don’t think Columbia will be doing away with those anytime soon!
