I’m from Hawaii. Can I get into University of Kansas with a 2.5 GPA?

@hawaiian2018 I think it may be difficult for you to get into the University of Kansas. Although the University has an almost open selection policy, they still do want you to be at their average criteria of about a 3.25 with 1100 SAT. At a 2.5, you most likely will not receive a lot of financial aid, and Kansas can be pretty pricey out-of-state. The academics at Kansas, like other colleges, are difficult because they are at the college level. So for that reason you may not be prepared for the difficulty of the academics.

Then again, who knows? You might get lucky and in the end I do encourage you to apply because it is a fantastic school!
