elliebear Posted July 9, 2010 Share Posted July 9, 2010 (edited) Hi guys. I'll be applying for Fall 2011 masters and am wondering which of the two will be the greater deciding factor when it comes to admitting an applicant. Would someone with a low gpa, (about 3.2) but a good CV (no paper, but a lot of experience, such as internship, in the related field, and participated in related conferences etc) stand a good chance, compared to someone with high GPA (say about 3.7) but with a CV that is "scattered" (buffet-like and no focus)? That is, assuming their other application materials such as GRE results are comparable, and that they are applying for the same masters course. I have to admit, I belong to the former. Currently lacking a bit of confidence in the application, given that everything else is great, except for the GPA (had a terrible time in the first two years), which I've heard so much about committees being very stringent and setting it as the first bar applicants would have to cross. Please advise me! Edited July 9, 2010 by elliebear Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
