Low GPA acceptance?!

Recommended Posts

The lowest I encountered while doing interviews was a 3.2 cumulative. But their science GPA was a 4.0. If I remember right, they failed/did poorly in some non science and non major classes their freshman and sophomore years, so their cumulative GPA wasn't really representative of their academic competence. 

During my interviews at least, 4.0 wasn't uncommon, 3.5+ was very common, with <3.5 making up the lowest 10-20%.

A lot of programs publish the mean and sometimes the max and min of the preceding year's class on their websites. Sometimes that includes a minimum GPA to be considered for acceptance, of the ones I remember seeing they were 3.0.
