    So I know schools prefer an upward trend, but my GPA seems to be a bit all over the place. It's at a 3.4 now with a 3.2 science GPA (non-science major). I'm taking my DATs in less than a week -- hoping to do well on that, especially in the sciences, and I'm applying this cycle. Do you think an "up-and-down" GPA means a red flag? :confused:

    As long as the "down" isn't too far below a 3.0 I'm sure it's ok. Under a 2.5 would sure be a red flag in my opinion.

    My GPA also followed a similar trend. Went from a 3.4->3.1->3.3->3.0...
