august Posted February 21, 2011 Share Posted February 21, 2011 I've been here before and you guys have been a great help. So I'm here again! I am currently enrolled in a Master's program for English. I'm in my second semester and have been given some conflicting ideas when it comes to grades. Next year I plan to apply for PhD programs in Rhetoric and New Media, especially one that is taught at the school I am currently at, but I am confused and GPAs and the like. A professor of mine recently sent my class an email saying that a B on a paper or in a class in graduate school (MA) is equivalent to a D in undergrad. It was pretty shocking. While I know As are supposed to be aimed for, and ultimately received for ultimate achievement, I had been under the impression that a B was merely not as great as you can be and if you get a whole litany of Bs on your transcripts than you had better find a new career. Maybe my impression was wrong, but I'm not sure. So I suppose, what I'm asking is: How horrible is it to get a B or two on your graduate transcripts?
