    on the drexel secondary they ask for all schools attended and reported gpa. i studied abroad my jr year and got terrible grades b/c the only thing that would shows up on my undergrad transcript was transfer credit, not the actual grade. should i put my lousy gpa down or should i just skip the foreign school or write "transfer credit" in the gpa field??

    since it's just one school you should probably call and get the info from the horse's mouth.

    You always have to include study abroad grades. Graduate programs require grades from everywhere you've studied for tertiary education. At the beginning of your senior year when your grades come in from the study abroad university, your study abroad advisor should automatically forward that transcript, along with a signed affadavit to the registrar's office to be attached to your regular transcript. Usually your JYA grades don't count towards your regular GPA, but the scores marks are still there.
