    Do upward trends in GPA help out even if they are in your 3rd year?

    I have an upward trend from my last two semesters of 3.6 and 3.7 (which includes A-'s and B+'s in upper div biology classes and B+ and A in Physics 1 and 2)

    But my cumulative gpa is only 3.36 and 3.25 BCP

    I did briefly mention it in my personal statement in app and talk about how I had to re adjust time management which resulted in better grades..so I am basically hoping I dont get any rejections before this fall's grades go up so I can show I have another semester of 3.7 + grades

      The upward trend is definitely a positive thing. But it doesn't completely overshadow your low GPA.
