august Posted October 1, 2010 Share Posted October 1, 2010 I apologize for another GPA post, but I've looked through the earlier ones and notice that they relate to undergrad GPA. My question relates to a graduate GPA. I'm currently in an MA program with intention to enroll in a PhD program in creative writing. My undergraduate GPA was stellar, a 3.94 but I am unnaturally close to getting a C in a class during my first semester. I am working on attempting to bring it up before the end of the semester, but I'm looking at a worse case scenario. So my question is, would one C (and if I manage to keep a 3.5 or higher GPA aside from this class) hurt my chances of getting into a PhD program? Or, do programs look at the overall GPA? My GRE isn't stellar, but it's well above the minimum that is needed for the schools I'm interested in. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
