AMCAS GPA Question

I didn't see it in the online PDF - how many decimal places do they take it to and do they do regular rounding or the next highest integer? I know it sounds silly, but I actually need to know. I'm assuming normal rounding & 2 digits, yes?

yes, from what i've heard, it's 3 sig figs... which would mean it would go to 2 decimal places. I don't think this question is silly at all. A few of the classes I am taking will bump by GPA up from a 3.51 to a 3.55 by the end of the semester.. my big push is to hit the 3.6 mark by the time i apply to medical school.
