  1. Hi all, This is my first time posting here, but really need advice. I graduated in 2017 with a BS in biochemistry and minor in psychology. After graduating, I wasn't really sure how I wanted to move forward so I got a job in a biochem-based wet lab at a top medical school in my city where I'm a research tech, but I am basically treated like a masters student. I have my own project that I am the sole researcher for and do all of the work and present it to my PI. I'm hoping to start writing a manuscript soon. So basic breakdown of my college years: I started off okay, but then
  2. Undergraduate Major and College: Rising 4th year Biomedical Engineering, for privacy sake will just say it's an American college, and consistently a renowned, top 4 program in the world for my major. G.P.A: 3.1 / 4 (Got an extremely high upward trend but probably the aspect I'm most worried about) GRE: Verbal (161) Math (166) Letters: One from my PI, very good relationship. One from a clinician who sponsors/consults for a medical device start-up I co-founded, very good relationship and is renowned in their field. One is from a professor whos
  3. Hello everyone! So I'm currently completing my pre requisite courses to gain entrance into a SLP masters programs in my state. I graduated with a 2.57 GPA and it seems as though so far its all 3.0 GPA cut off. I'm completing 11 courses from USU that will transfer to these programs. So far I've gotten B+, while working full time and taking care of family during these moments. I wanted to write this and hear from others out there who have been in similar situations and what you decided to do. I am willing to put in the work to reach the criteria but is it a realistic goal for me to have? Did it
  4. Hi everyone, hope you all are well. I'm in a sort of precarious situation. I want to apply for MS in CS but I'm not sure which universities I should apply to. Here's the deal: I'm from India and I did my double major undergraduate (from a top tier uni FWIW) in mathematics and electronics and scored a 6.95/10. My grades in electronics courses are pathetic but math courses are fine. After working for two years in the industry, I want to get into a university that will help me get into a research program eventually possibly using my pure maths experience. Thankfully my GRE is alright q: 1

  6. Hi, I majored in Psychology at a top university in India. My undergrad GPA is low (3.04/4.0). However, I am currently doing some PG work in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to make up for my poor gpa (and a three year undergrad degree). By the time I submit my application, I'll have work exp of about 2 years. I want to know how else can I make up for my low GPA, if I want to apply to good HCI programs? Some schools I am looking at are - GTech, UofW, UofMaryland, etc. Do I even stand a chance?

  8. Hi everyone! Sorry for any grammar mistakes. English is not my native language. I’ve been a long-time lurker of this forum. Decided it’s time to finally post a few concerns/questions I had. Background: I am a 28-year-old woman interested in applying to MPP/MPA programs in America. I graduated from a large state college in California in 2013 with a degree in economics and biostatistics. However, I BOMBED college. No excuse- I joined too many clubs, had health problems, and just made some aweful mistakes leading to poor time management. As a result, I graduated with a low GPA (3.0), with se

I love this field so much that I can’t see myself doing anything else. My huge concern is do I have the chance of getting into graduate school with the GPA that I have.

  14. Hello, I wanted to see what schools people recommend for graduate program in speech language pathology that look at more than just GPA and GRE. MY GPA is not competitive.

  15. Hi there, Last year I graduated and received a BA in Speech-Language Pathology and I also minored in Child and Adolescent Development. Unfortunately, I have a GPA lower than 2.5, mainly due to serious illnesses I experienced during my time at and also housing was an issue. Now looking back I should've taken the time off to get well properly but I just had that mentality that I could. As many of us in this field know that my GPA is unexceptional for most Grad programs so I was thinking of doing an SLPA program. I am curious if there is anybody out there who has a similar experience

  18. Hello everyone, I am unapologetically paranoid about graduate school admissions. My undergraduate grades fluctuated quite a bit. I attended a community college for two years receiving a 3.4 GPA. I then transferred to a top 75 liberal arts college where I received a 3.2 GPA. My total undergraduate GPA works out to be a 3.3 which is not very good for more competitive programs in international development/public policy. I was hoping that I could get your feelings on my chances at admissions at Columbia SIPA and John's Hopkins SIAS. Other things to consider. I served in the Peace

  21. Hi, I was wondering if there any schools that anyone has gotten into that accepted a GPA between a 3.3-3.4? Was your GRE high? Any suggestions for me? I'll be applying next school year, but my advisor doesn't think I can retake anything to help my GPA (even though it have one C+ and one D). If not do you have suggestions on what I could do with my undergrad in SLPA? Thanks for your help!

  23. I'm doing a double major in Microbiology and Genetics and I have a 2.3 GPA. Even though my GPA is so low I want to go to grad school for Developmental & Reproductive Biology. I have had a lot of experience in research since I had multiple internships and jobs working at the veterinary school, zoos, genetics laboratories, etc. In addition, in all my laboratory courses I have passed with A's but in other courses like chemistry and math I have done poorly. I was wondering what are my real chances into getting into a school program even if I get a real high school in my GRE and have good recom
