      I dont' think a 3.0 GPA is bad. its a B average and most schools just want you to do better than a C in prerequ classes and I dont think you did worse than that in any class this Fall, right? And at least you got into one school. you shoudl be grateful.

        The fact of the matter is that, although your Fall academic update will be available via AADSAS to admissions people, the printed version won't go out for weeks. Additionally, they cannot recalculate your AADSAS GPAs until your transcripts come in and they've looked them over at AADSAS.

        So, there is some space to let this slide. Obviously, closer to the time that schools close admissions, all your schools will have received your academic update and will have your updated AADSAS GPA... at which point, you will likely have a slightly lesser chance. But your overall GPAs are good, so I don't see how this'll be too much of an issue.

          I think you'll be OK since you have 3.6 after 3 years of studying and only 3.0 for one semester ... so average won't be like 3.3 , it'll be closer to 3.5 which is not bad at all. IMO schools look at cumulative GPA.
          Good luck.

            You should be a little happier about your BU acceptance! At this point in the game there are still many qualified candidates who don't have any acceptances at all. Be thankful for and happy about having one :)

            My guess on UMDNJ in your case -- take into account that you are an out of stater who hasn't gotten an interview invite yet. I don't think it's likely that you will. As per doc toothache's thread here, they only gave out 55 interviews to out of staters for the last reported cycle.

            I don't know enough about the other programs you asked about to speculate on them.

            GL with the rest of the cycle.
