    I had friends who got into GW last year with a 3.0, lol, so having a 3.4 isn't bad at all, as long as you keep an upward trend.

    Not to discredit what your friend did, but you also need to take into consideration the school as well as the academic course-load. A 3.0 from tough classes at a reputable school goes farther than a 3.5 at a community college taking fluff work.

    My friend went to the top private school in New York, not a college
  • mishk90mishk90 Registered User Posts: 395 Member
    Also, I do not attend a CC, I am currently attending a top 10 private, liberal arts college

    @jttomidn2p2 What other schools did you apply to. It seems with a 4.00 gw would almost be a safety, no?

    Are there special math requirements to transfer to GW? Just got denied to a school for not taking Algebra II//Trigonometry/Calculus yet. Didn't find anything on GW's website regarding it or the school I was rejected from.
  • mishk90mishk90 Registered User Posts: 395 Member
    @TransferFall2018 I don't think so
  • TransferFall2018TransferFall2018 Registered User Posts: 144 Junior Member
    Great. I have already completed Algebra I and Statistics because I was a Finance major at the time.
  • TransferFall2018TransferFall2018 Registered User Posts: 144 Junior Member
    Just got this confirmed, no specific course requirements for Political Science majors.
