    Hello, I am 3rd semester student. I was wondering, To get into Michigan for 5th semester, what is the cumulative GPA requirement in Basic sciences?? I heard you need at least more than 3.5 ( according to old GPA scale )??? And also Canadian students get extra point??? Please some one clarify on this....

    thanks

    it's points based, GPA over 3.5 is 2 pts, over 3 is 1 pt, living in canada, mi or a surrounding state is 1 pt, each leadership position you hold is 1 pt (ie president of a club or SGA E-Board). Then once they give the top points spots, they take the rest and do a lottery to decide who gets to go. That's at least how it was when I was there in Sept 2010.

    Do they make decision based on GPA of first 3 semesters? When do you find out where will you be going after 4th or during 4th?

    Thanks

    You need at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA. They only look at your first three semesters. In like the first 3 weeks of 4th, you get to make the choice on what site you'd like to go to. By around week 5 (or something), they tell you the decision.

    And I think, if I remember correctly, you get a point for being Canadian (which might count as surrounding Michigan...don't remember specifically).
