Acceptance into MA

Recommended Posts

Hey Folks, 

I am an Egyptian student who will be immigrating to the United States with my American wife.  I hope to continue my studies in English at a MA program.  I unfortunately have only a 2.9 undergraduate GPA.  The programs that I have checked, especially at the Cal State system have a cut-off at 3.0.  What should I do to gain acceptance into a program.  I am, of course, not looking for any Ivy League school.  I just want an opportunity to redefine myself academically at any MA program.

Hi there! You're right that the 2.9 might keep you out of the Cal State system and others would probably have more to say about it than me. I know this has been a wonderful resource for those in your GPA range, though: 


Lots of inspirational stories of success in there!
