Izzie2104 Posted June 30, 2019 Share Posted June 30, 2019 Greetings. I am currently an undergraduate student majoring in Literature. I have a 2.817 major GPA and a cumulative GPA of 2.555; and a 2.67 GPA in the last 60 units of upper-division coursework. My question is: How do I get admitted into the MA program at my school (or other MA programs) with the kinds of GPA I have? I have one semester left of coursework left before I graduate, and I was told that the best thing for me to do was to get the best grades possible this last semester. I am not sure if I can muster straight A's or anything like that in one semester to boost up the minimum GPA requirements. My school (CSUDH) requires a 3.0 in the last 60 units of coursework to be admitted. I am really nervous because I only majored in Literature to go to graduate school and one day pursue a PhD (with me already knowing what I want to specialize in already). What should I do this last term I have before graduating? I will be applying for my program, despite GPA deficiencies, but I am still nervous that I might not make the cut. My school really isn't that competitive when it comes to admitting students, and I am lucky to even have been able to be a student at this university. Even if this is the case, I am still not certain I will be admitted given that I do not have the GPA. Any advice appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
