Is a GPA of 3.65 competitive enough for a transfer applicant?

<p>I’m knee-deep in my freshman year of college, and although I was determined to make at least a 3.8 my first semester (I am so desperate to get out of this school), it looks like I might be getting a B or two this year.
I would say that I have pretty solid ECs but my GPA concerns me. What do you think?</p>

<p>Probably depends somewhat on the school you are currently enrolled in-- how rigorous is it? what is its reputation in term of grade inflation/deflation? A 3.65 could be seen as very strong coming from a college known for tough grading standards .. and very questionable if it was coming from a college that is considered much less rigorous than Barnard.</p>

<p>I'd rather not name the school, but it is notorious for brutal grading. I think the average GPA is set at about 3.1.</p>

<p>I would say it's sufficiently rigorous.
I don't mean to insult your decision to transfer, but why do you want to leave Johns Hopkins for Barnard?</p>

<p>You're above the average GPA of admitted transfer applicants, so I'd say it's competitive.</p>

<p>I am in the same boat! 3.74, but I want to get out! what's the average GPA for accepted transfer students?</p>
