adqttr Posted May 11, 2013 Share Posted May 11, 2013 I really want to get my Masters in software Engineering, but I am wondering if I could ever get into grad school. My Resume: Bacholers in Software Engineering from Clarkson University - 2.25 gpa 2 Maters Courses in Software, taken from Online College - 3.5 gpa GRE Scores - 161 M 151 V 3.5 W 5 years Software Engineering Experience in the DoD industry 3 good recommendations (2 professional, 1 Academic) Bs on all Foundation Courses (Self Eval Form [Discrete Math, OO-Programming, Comp Arch and Data Structures]) My Story: I went to my undergrad at clarkson university in upstate new york. I went there to play hockey, Its Division 1 and pretty serious. My studies took a pretty big hit because of this, so my gpa is horrible. I graduated in 09, got a job and have been working for the past 4 years. I really want to go to grad school to get ahead and learn more. I applied to George Mason, as I live in the northern virginia area. Last year I got declined, so they told me to take the gre and some undergrad classes, [Discrete math and Comp Arch] because I did poorly before, and they are on the self evaluation form. I reapplied this year, I have not gotten my answer yet. If I do not get in, what are my options moving forward? Is there anywhere legit that you can get a masters in software engineering or Computer Science if you have a terrible gpa? Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
