    I just checked my application and AADSAS verified my mark today.

    What is the difference between GPA and GPA w/o?
    Do shools look at GPA or GPA w/o?

    w/o + and -
    I asked this question last year and it will probably be asked 50 more times by the time the application cycle is over.

    GPA = with pluses and minus
    GPA w/o = without pluses and minus
    my GPA w/o was a bit higher than my GPA

    Adcomms probably look at both. They are both there for a reason. :)

    okay, i just want to make sure they don't have a preference btwn the two, and that they look at both equally!

    If they did have a preference (which some schools still may), it's not like you could do anything about it at this point anyways.

    This is a question I was about to ask a few days ago because I did a search for "GPA w/o" and the system returned 0 results. I ended up figuring it out through AADSAS though. That might be why it is asked so often. Also, when I tried to do a search for "+ -" and "A+" to find posts on those debates, it came up empty. This is because + and - are not recognized as search terms, they are boolean operators that modify the search. That's why no one can find these threads it unless they go out and do a Google search and find it that way.
