Michigan state said they want my most current grades for the final decision; i got a 26 act and 3.5 gpa but my gpa for the first quarter for senior year was a 3.3. I am really worried.

    i got the same letter im pretty worried too, i had 10 ap and honors, 3.5, 27, captain of robotics team which won the state championship, NHS, 50+ volunteering hours, student council. Im pretty upset because i worked pretty hard and they are accepting people with 24s, 1 extracurricular with less ap and honors classes

    They may not necessarily want your grades to increase - just not decrease too much either. Does your 3.5 have a lot of more fluffier type of classes? They might just want to see how you can deal with your current workload.

    @singh2206 the major doesn't have anything to do with it because as a freshman you are not technically part of the Broad College of Business, you have to apply after your first or second year. All MSU applicants are given equal consideration regarding their major, with a few exceptions. I'm guessing that you are part of a large bubble. I say a large bubble because I think your grades are fairly common among MSU applicants and they are trying to see who they want out of the applicants in that pack.
