Ok, so here is the quick story.... Like a lot of students I had a very "rough" freshman year GPA-wise (which I know is not something new) and even though I raised my grades during my sophomore year, my cumulative GPA is still 3.007. Now let's say that I get 3.7+ GPA during both semester of my junior year I'd still have somewhere around a 3.35 GPA in my transcript. Would that still not make enough of an impression seeing as there IS an upward trend or would it be the same as a person who had a consistent 3.4 GPA? OR is that kind of thing not even looked at during the application/screening process??
