I am studying Communication Disorders and going to be a senior. Right now I have a 3.40 GPA, this summer if I take 2 classes and make As, by the time I apply I will have a 3.50 GPA. I hear and read a lot of things that make me think I NEED a 3.5+ to even get into the schools I want (UT, UT Dallas, Boulder, Arizona State Uni. are some of my more reaching schools). I will take my GRE this summer, I am confident I can make a 300 or above. My resume is ok, I have some experience shadowing Audiologists and I have decent involvement, my rec letters from my teachers should be glowing (fingers crossed). I do have some "less competitive" schools on my list but I have my sights set on the ones above. I just don't know what to do or whats the most important, I want to be the most competitive I can.
