jeffninja Posted August 11, 2015 Share Posted August 11, 2015 Hi all, I am a second year PhD student in a top 50 program. I don't like my current program because few faculties work on the subfield I am interested in. My advisor doesn't like me either and thus I decided to quit my current program and reapply for the 2016 Fall. I have good GRE scores (V168 Q166), good grades in statistics courses, and research experience (a good working paper ready for peer review). My undergraduate GPA is OK, but my graduate GPA is a problem. As an international student, I didn't do well in my first semester in US so now my GPA is only 3.5. I also taught an undergraduate class and did several RA works. So is it wise for me to reapply to top programs? Will a low graduate GPA have a great impact on the application? Thank you for your attention! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
