  1. My current school's transcript does not list a cumulative, except for their school's.  (My other transcripts do.) So I had to do the calculations for my all-career cumulative up to this point.  It's not recorded anywhere on a transcript.


    I think I've figured out that "degree GPA" and "cumulative GPA" are different (the distinctions being obvious in the names.)  So I did calculate everything to get my cumulative. 

    I re-calculated mine as well.

  2. I'm so confused about these...Michigan has a personal statement and this is the prompt:


    How have your background and life experiences, including cultural, geographical, financial, educational or other opportunities or challenges, motivated your decision to pursue a graduate degree at the University of Michigan?

    For example, if you grew up in a community where educational, cultural, or other opportunities were either especially plentiful or especially lacking, you might discuss the impact this had on your development and interests. This should be a discussion of the journey that has led to your decision to seek a graduate degree.


    I have a diversity essay written already, and I copied/pasted it into the "additional information" box. For the personal statement, I have written some experiences I have had that made me want to apply to grad school and join the programs I did in college. Do you think that is fine? Or should I just use my diversity statement? The thing is, my diversity statement is about a specific event that happened only about a year ago... I don't want to use it to talk about how it made me want to apply, just to tell them that I do come from a unique background.


    Any thoughts?
