GPA for California Schools

Recommended Posts

Hello, I just ended my Spring semester today and I'm not feeling too hot. Pretty sure my 3.85 gpa is going to fall somewhere between a 3.6-3.7 after grades get put in. But I still have my last 4 classes to take this Fall semester to bring it back up, however since I'm a postbacc student I will also be applying to grad schools in the Fall. My question is: If I do end up bringing my GPA back up, will schools still look at my transcripts from Fall semester even after I send out my apps with my lower GPA? I'm assuming they HAVE to since they need to make sure I completed all the 12 classes for my postbacc? I am in California and tend to be applying only in state. 

I was also wondering, specifically for California schools, do they really weed you out my GPA and GRE score without looking at the rest of your app? I feel like I have great volunteer experience as well as research experience and would be able to get great LORs from professors to offset GPA but I'm really scared that they look at GPA and if you have a 3.6 or 3.7 they don't bother looking at anything else...Any advice or personal experience would be helpful!! Thanks!!

@slpvee can I ask what your CSD GPA is?

 

Right now its a 3.85 but after grades go in this semester I'm expecting it to drop.

You are able to submit fall transcripts to CSDCAS after you submit your original application. You may also wait until you get your fall semester grades to submit your application so that the schools will see it.

 

I'm not entirely sure about all school's "weeding out" process but I have heard that CSUF will not review applications for applicants with a CSD GPA below 3.7. But I'm sure there are some exceptions.
