    There's a high chance that those students could be in staters though.

    OOS competition is generally a lot tougher.

    Almost all schools have a "low" in the high 2's or barely 3. You don't know everyones story. They could have a really nice DAT score.....be 2nd, 3rd, 4th time applicants......a ton of experience.....who knows.

    Does this data represent the range of those who have been accepted or enrolled?

    high DAT and GPA...doesnt mean you are in for sure...they care a lot on your background experiences/personalities/more imp your essay. i'v met 3.7 with like a 22...still don't get in. soo...for those being in the lower rank, dont give up!!

    Yea, 2.09 seems to be a bit too low. What would it be equivalent to in letter grade? D+? D-?

    so doc, i was looking on predents and when you move the mouse over their names for "interviewed" or "accepted" they rank people by their undergrad GPA and then when u click on their name they may have a high gpa through post-bacc or master's, do you know if this list consists of only their undergrad or post-undergrad stats as well...?

    I got shot down from Harvard with a 2.8 undergrad 3.85 post grad thesis masters and 25AA and 27TS

    in short....do well in undergrad :p

    I still got into a great school so I am very happy (and I'm 2 for 2 with the other ivy league players)

    Yeah, I agree with you! It could be that these applicants have other qualifications that improve their acceptance. Besides many do a post-bacc or Master's to help their application. I know that my Master's gpa is stellar compared to my Bachelors gpa.

    Crossing my fingers it helps me!

    I know this is an old thread...but is that the list of people that got accepted? or just the ones that got accepted?
