  1. Hey y’all! I am in my senior year of undergrad speech & looks like I will be ending this semester with 2 C’s (possibly B’s if a miracle happens) I am scheduled to take my GRE Friday & feel fairly confident. If I don’t score well I can always re-take it. I am just concerned about getting into ANY grad school with C’s. I feel extremely discouraged & kind of defeated at this point. How possible is it to get into grad school with C’s? I feel really good with my LOR, volunteer hours & personal statement but I am just really starting to freak out. Any advice, suggestions, etc? Thank y’all so much!
  2. Hello, Currently I'm studying in Tohoku University which, I believe, one of the top Universities in Japan. When it comes to education system, Japan is pretty different from the rest of other countries. I am planning to apply to several top universities in United States which are, indisputably, very competitive. I have a 3.66 GPA which, I think, is pretty mediocre. However, getting 3.65 GPA in my university is by no mean mediocre. The way how my GPA calculated in detail is as follow. GPA = (Sum of {credit *grade}) / (Sum of {credit}) What messed up in my opinion is the way how the grade is given. In each course, which typically has 2-4 credits, we have four kinds of grade. AA = approx. 90% of maximum score in a course = 4.0 out of 4.0 A = approx. 80% of maximum score in a course = 3.0 out of 4.0 B = approx. 70% of maximum score in a course = 2.0 out of 4.0 C = approx. 60% of maximum score in a course = 1.0 out of 4.0 D = below. 60% of maximum score in a course = fail The gap between AA and A is huge in term of GPA. I got AAs of almost 68% of my total credit, while the rest of them are As except one course which I got B. The average student only got 3.2 ~ 3.3 out of 4. How do I justify my GPA? The University has an official document explaining how they calculate the cumulative GPA. Should I include this document along with my transcript?
  3. Hello, I will be applying for a sociology program in the fall of 2017; however, I've been really concerned about my gpa. My undergraduate gpa is very low 2.8 and my masters gpa is a 3.6 but will increase to 3.8 by graduation. I am interested in the following schools: UC Santa Barbara UC Davis UC Irvine Columbia CUNY Rutgers George Mason University/American University (last option) I have several publications and conference presentations. I've been listed in a top journal and have outstanding letters of recommendation. Do you think the gpa will be a huge impediment to my getting it in?
