christina_bme Posted February 7, 2008 Share Posted February 7, 2008 Maybe some current grad students can help me out with this line of speculation. I got my B.S. in bioengineering from a small state school that isn't well-recognized nationally. I had a 3.76 GPA, which I always considered to be not too shabby, until I applied to grad school. The rule of thumb I had always heard was that anything above a 3.5 is fine, but higher is better. Now I worry that my 3.76 from Nowhere State isn't comparing well to similar GPAs from Stanford and MIT. Do you think the perceived prestige/difficulty of your undergraduate school matters in graduate admissions? Not that I can really do anything about my GPA now...just curious to see what others think.
