I am applying to phD in engineering, but afraid my low ggpa is terribly bad,
UGPA was 3.65 but GGPA is 2.72 now, still remaining 2 semesters including this fall.
I am afraid admission office will filter my application out not looking at other factors.. Even my other activities are just normal. Interestingly, I got 3 admissions from pretty good colleges when applying for MS (one was phD w/o funding). But now, things are going worse and my current gpa may definitely adversely-effect on my application.
I am not hoping getting into Top private colleges, just not that huge state university but with safe funding. I e-mailed an admission office, and they say even if not filtered it is unusual for the one with gpa lower than 3.2 to get offered.
Should I consider... not to include my graduate record? Will that be..kind of cheating? I am also concerned my low writing background will matter, as an international, my GRE writing was 3.5 (V610/Q770) I am sssso depressed, need help!
