It's not fair to people like me who have too suffer with a low gpa just because I studied at a difficult university abroad. I don't think many universities understand that some universities are harder then others.

Having a 2.7 from the university I graduated from is like having a 3.6 here in America or another country but I don't think they understand that.

ECE knows which schools are difficult and have a better reputation and give GPAs accordingly. If you did well in school and didn't fail any classes your GPA would be above 3. Your GPA is given based on your performance in school so improve your resume to make up for it.

One friend told me that his WES GPA was a bit higher than his ECE one. It didn't work for me, but it's worth trying. They have an online calculator that can estimates your GPA for $5.00.

If this did not work, then try to shadow a dentist, get a high score in TOEFL, and improve your resume so that interviewers will pick you over others with similar GPA.

I know couple of dentists with low GPAs who have become oral surgeons.
CHEER UP :)

I have a WES evaluation report which is 3.3 but not all schools accept it. That's the downfall.
