    yes, Im another sad story :p

    what could save me at this point?

    Is there something that I could do to set me apart from the other low GPA victims?

    I plan on enrolling in a post-bacc program to boost the GPA, but besides that .. any suggestions?

    Thanks! :biglove:

    I transferred universities so at my first university, I recieved a 2.45 cumulative gpa. At my current university, it's about 3.0 cumulative gpa. I can potentially graduate with cumulative 3.25.

    last semester was 3.7 and continuing upward trend!

    So..considering both schools, I can have ~ cumulative 2.85, and science ~2.5 OUCH! I know...

    keep bumping it up... I started at 2.77, bumped it up to 3.04 and it got me in... but you might need to get up to at least 3.2-3.3 to feel safe
