How Much to Grad School Grades Matter?

I just got rejected from Goucher, which upsets me because I thought I had a shot at least to interview, and I was trying to think through what could have been bad about my application. I went to grad school where there was a pretty rough curve and got two Bs and a B+, which is great for the program, but I wonder if those grades are not good enough for competitive postbacs? My other stats are pretty good, high GPA and pretty high SAT. Any knowledge on this would be appreciated.

Your grad GPA seems fine. Undergrad GPA is much more important ayways. I think you'll be fine, as I said in the other thread. Don't be so concerned about one rejection, especially if you intend to apply open pool after your postbac year. If you can't deal with rejection you're going to go nuts then.
