The EDUFAX Educational FAQ

I am interested in GRADUATE SCHOOL.....

Question #13:
  • My undergraduate GPA is 2.4. What are my chances of getting into Graduate School?
Answer #13:
  • With your current undergraduate GPA, you will need some convincing improvement to show an admissions committee that you are serious about Graduate School. Your subject area is also very important, as some graduate fields are traditionally more competitive than others. You could also try to improve your GPA by attending summer school. Have there been any mitigating factors which have affected your GPA? It might be helpful to explain anything which impacted on your academic standing. If not, I suggest you take a few graduate courses (even as a non-matriculated student) and impress admissions officers with your newfound maturity and scholarliness. Many schools will let students take courses before they are formally accepted.
    Don't give up. You may have to seek admission through the back door, but once you're in, you're in. If you have really changed your attitude and habits, your undergraduate GPA should not be a permanent hindrance.
    EDUFAX provides services for the Graduate School Applicant.
