seeker2787 Posted February 28, 2012 Share Posted February 28, 2012 Hey all... I tried doing multiple searches for this topic but all my search combinations came back as being too general. I went to a meeting last night at my university where a representative from a test prep company was talking about how important the GRE, MCAT, and other entrance exams were for getting into professional school. One of his points he emphasized was that schools look at test scores more than a GPA. He stated that schools understand one may have a rough semester or two. That sometimes a poor grade really is due to the professor and his style/grading. Does anyone know if this is true? I know GPA is very important and helps to give an overall picture of an academic career. Part of what he said really made sense, but I have this "hesitation" at believing a good test score will trump an average GPA. Maybe this just comes from the fact that his job is to sell me on the test preparation program. Is anyone able to shed some light on the situation? All the posts and information give a breakdown on stats but I'm having trouble finding "weight" of various stats. I suppose it may vary per school as well. (Did all this research on a tablet, so I apologize if I missed a sticky or post) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
