    If this was a Science Masters program it is very common to get 4.0's in these things... Joke classes that are an excuse to do research :laugh:

    I was told at my UMDNJ interview that if one were to COMPLETE a master's program that it would be the GPA used for the decision process. The degree has to be completed before applying though.

    I just make this comment working in a graduate Laboratory and seeing that 3 out of the 4 students in our lab have a 4.0 and the other has a 3.96... I have seen this in numerous situations of Science graduate programs... The emphasis is research and often times grades are not a big deal, most of their classes are taught by the Doctor that runs the lab... I've been accepted, so no insecurities about grades! Although, my MCAT did suck!
