probably because their applicants are strong in other areas. ? or maybe others with higher GPA's rather choose a better location for school?

You think 3.4 is low? really? sounds like my kind of school. I thought you were going to say something like 2.7 or in the 2's. Where is is "UOP"? University of..?

I think UOP prefers well grounded students who already had BS/BA degree .Thus, majority of people with good GPA ( like above 3.6, 3.7) who applied to UOP are either at sophomore/ junior level or still at local community college.

i knew UOP was at 3.1 a few years ago but I didn't know it was still so "low". I would think all schools avg gpa have been rising.

and UOP is in a ghetto, small, really boring town of Stockton.

Thanks Kiki- I was thinking it was Pittsburgh - I was way off geographically.

Isn't UOP the school that cares more about your pre-req GPA than your cGPA?
