can I transfer with low gpa?

<p>I'm in my 4th year at BU. Have never been happy here but tried to stick it out. After a bout with depression and tremendous struggle my gpa is 2.2. On academic suspension. I have one semester left before I graduate. My reinstatement is not guaranteed. Should I risk waiting a whole year for my suspension to expire and hope they reinstate me? Should I just transfer to another school? What college would accept a low gpa? Has anyone had success transferring with this kind of gpa? I have to consider a public college in NY since my parents can no longer pay private school tuition (although they would pay the last semester at BU).</p>

<p>It seems to me that the best thing right now would be to take the year off to work and think about your career goals. When you know why you want that degree, you will know where it is that you want to finish it.</p>

<p>And yes, you can transfer with a 2.2. Some university or college in this country will take you. The real question is, which institution will accept you that also will help you meet your career goals. Finishing at BU just to finish may not be the right thing for you to do.</p>

<p>One of the problems that you may face as a possible transfer is the fact that you are currently a 7th semester senior. You may have too many credits to successfully transfer as most schools have a residency requirement (2 years) in order for you to obtain a degree from that school. In addition, you should also be prepared to lose credits as many of your credits while they may transfer, they may not transfer as far as filling degree/major requirements at your new school.</p>

<p>In the off chance that you are successful in transferring (with a very compelling statement to address you academic suspension), you will probably be in school at minimum another 1.5 years.</p>

<p>all the best</p>
