Chance of Stanford PhD program with a 3.6? I just want to manage expectations here.
I would like to go to grad school at Stanford for Linguistics, but I have some concerns about my GPA. My undergrad GPA was a 3.62 cumulative, because I decided to take on a Computer Science major in addition to Linguistics. I struggled in the classes, and did mostly B work. My major GPA for Linguistics is a 3.97, and I have two papers currently submitted for review (one in semantics and one in natural language processing). I think I can get some very strong letters of recommendation from professors I have worked with, but they are not famous professors. Do I still have any chance at Stanford grad school with such a low GPA? Do they even look at applications with less than a 3.7?10 replies
