I am an Electrical Engineering student at UCLA in my senior year, about to go into my fifth year starting next quarter (Fall). I will be applying to grad schools next quarter so my GPA right now is the GPA I will put down in the applications.
The current GPA I have is 3.42 (Cumulative) and around 3.46 (Upper Divs). Yea, it's kinda low but that's cause I messed up in my programming classes (bloody hell). I will be giving GREs in Fall and am preparing for them.
Anyway, UCLA had a guaranteed Masters program but the GPA required was 3.50, so I missed the boat...but I only blame myself for it. Regardless, I want to apply to the other UCs for the EE Masters program and had UCI, UCSD, UCSB, UCSC and UCLA in mind (and maybe CSU SLO/Pomona as safeties). I am also doing research with a Professor (in Communications) atm, so I have that area covered. I would like to know if I have chances (if any) at any of these programs, because I am not really sure about the GPAs required to get in a EE Masters program.
Forgot to mention, I was a transfer student and my transfer GPA was 3.80. Will this be looked at too?
