ArchieJones Posted December 4, 2019 Share Posted December 4, 2019 My first semester at college was a big adjustment and I had a pretty low GPA the first year. I got a 2.9 the first semester and a 3.15 the second. I continued to have a steady increase in GPA, ewith 3.9's my last three semesters (taking upper level courses and writing a senior thesis), ending in at total GPA of 3.49 (bouncing back from those first few semesters was unbelieably hard!). Does anyone have experience with this? Will admissions see the strong finish and forgive the rough start? Or should I lower my expectations for what kind of PhD program I should apply to?
