I am currently a sophomore and I am thinking about applying to NASA internships, if we want to talk about experience I am probably the only girl at my University who is associated in Space and Aerospace related projects, right now I am working on about 5 research projects and I am doing fine and understand everything and I am enjoying It more than anything ever. I am a student leader at Space laboratory at my college and many more space related projects. There is only one issue that I am facing which is bringing me here today...... on NASA's website it says that I have to have "Cumulative GPA of 2.9 and above to apply" I am a little hesitant and debating whether I should apply or not because currently I have a 2.97 GPA and I don't know if its even worth it to apply at this point because well....... most people that apply there literally have a 3.9 or 4.0 GPA...... I am looking to apply to Software Engineering and Computer Science related jobs as that is my major and I know how to code in 5 different languages and I have many leadership positions but still I feel like my GPA would ruin everything.
I would be happy to hear your thoughts! please feel free to share your ideas! thanks!
