Admissions revokation

Out of curiosity, what sort of grades would one need to have in the final semester in order for revokation of admission to be a possibility?

Not that I'm asking for myself. ~looks around~

    Can we presume you mean revocation?

    Yes. Was that really necessary?

    Sorry - for 8 years of grammar school in the '60s, correct spelling was drilled into my head by the penguins. When I do make a spelling error, I feel like an idiot, making the penguins proud.

    I think anything below a 2.5 GPA would be sketchy. Below 2.0 for revocation to be likely. Below 1.5 really shouldn't be happening.

    Of course, it also depends on the GPA you had when you were admitted. I'm assuming that you had something over a 3.0.

    GPA really does not matter. You can have the highest GPA you want but if you get an "F" or "D" or even a "C" in one class for one term I would be slightly concerned! Seriously.

    If you get anything less than an A-, Yale will sue you and take your house. And then they'll give your spot in the class to an Afghani with a dubious record on women's rights.

    While that's true, apfreak, couldn't they also be suspicious if your grades in each of your classes goes down a couple letter grades? I don't think they would revoke their offer of admission if a straight A student got one C, but if all their grades dropped to C's and their new GPA was a 2.0, the cumulative effect would be... bad.

    But yeah, a D or F in just one class could be your ticket out of Yale.

    i know one guy from my school last year who got into MIT, but then got 2 D+'s 2nd semester. He had to write a letter of explanation, but that's all.

    A Yale admissions committee member told me a couple of years ago they rescinded a guy for getting two Cs. They asked if there was any good explanation for the drop in grades, like one of his parents dying or something. When turned out to be just plain old senioritis, they revoked him.
