GPA and Grad School
I'm wondering what graduate programs, specifically MBA programs, think about a student who started out poorly and worked their way up to a moderate GPA. Freshman year I didn't do so well and ended up with a 2.75 (BC/B-) GPA. My sophomore year I got a 3.0. Junior year a 3.6. And senior year a 3.9. Senior year (my last semester) I overloaded credits (22) so I could graduate a semester early. I ended with a 3.34 cumulative GPA. Will they see my progress as a positive? or is my less than stellar cumulative GPA all that matters? It's worth noting that my major was not that rigorous, a communication science and rhetoric BA; however, I did go to a pretty good school, The University of Wisconsin-Madison.6 replies
