    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.

    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!
