    Lowest GPA that got you accepted

    Advertisements



    I know there is a lot of different criteria an admissions committee looks at in an applicant, but I'm just trying to gain some perspective. My gpa isn't bad, but not great and I've seen people with gpa's a lot higher than mine getting in so I'm just trying to figure out how low is too low. What were some low gpa's that got you accepted?

    overall gpa might not be as important as which classes you have low grades in. A low gpa in your science classes won't be good.

    As strange as it sounds my low grades are in non science classes, with the exception of that C I got in gen chem I.

    I think anything about a 1.5 average, with a strong heartbeat, makes you "very competitive."

    Perhaps a more appropriate thread would be "lowest credit score that got you accepted."

    All you need to do is put on your application that your paying cash and you will have no problem getting accepted.
