I am about to finish a bachelors degree at my current school. I want to pursue a masters degree at another college. I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out the qualifications for admission. The degree I am looking into only requires a 2.5 cumulative gpa for admission. I have intentionally picked this degree because of the lower gpa requirements, and no GRE tests, or letters of recommendation needed.
My problem is I have a lot of F grades from community college decades ago. These grades have followed me around, and I can't shake them.
I am looking at my current college transcript at the university I am about to graduate from. My cumulative is above a 2.5.
My overall is below a 2.0 which includes the F grades transferred in. My last 30+ hours are above a 3.0, and I need about 21 more hours to finish.
I have also read that many colleges will only look at the last 60 hours of course work to make a decision about graduate school. If that is the case then I should be in the clear. I guess I need to call the college I am going to transfer to and start asking them questions. It seems like I have done that before in the past, and didn't really get anywhere other than send us your transcripts.
I could of course stay at my current college, and would be accepted into a masters program there. I have already talked to them about it. But I really want to transfer somewhere else.
I am not trying to get into a hard college for a masters program by any means. How do most colleges look at this overall in general?
