Bethany8787 Posted August 25, 2014 Share Posted August 25, 2014 Hi All, New here and I had a questions. I'm currently in a Masters program and want to transfer to a PhD program (not offered by my current school). My current GPA is 3.575. I am taking a class in the Fall and if I can get an A (extremely plausible, I believe) I will bring my GPA up to 3.66. Undergrad GPA was not good (3.03). I could theoretically be ready to start applying within a month, depending on how quickly I can get letters of recommendation together. Even though application deadlines are not until January for the school I want to apply to, I have heard that applying early is beneficial and I am looking for any edge I can get. My question is, is applying early with a lower GPA better than applying later with a higher GPA? Bearing in mind that 1) the GPA difference isn't that great (less than .1 points) and 2) I will definitely be applying by the actual deadline regardless. What do you all think? Thanks for the feedback! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
