thats interesting...I didn't know graduate schools enforced a minimum gpa.. even the top schools have a big range. I'm sure there are a few who get accepted to top schools w/ gpa below 3.0..
I certainly hope there is no cutoff...my gpa is seriously a 2.99!
2.99=3.00. Anyone know the answer? I don't understand how someone who went to like Central Michigan with a 3.1 in psychology has a chance over a BIG TEN school economics degree with a 2.7
Most programs do not have actual GPA cutoffs, just as they don't have GMAT cutoffs. That said, if you have a 2.65 GPA and a 590 GMAT there have to be *significant* offsetting factors for you to have a decent chance at schools with, say, an average 650 GMAT. Those factors can be a powerful personal story, excellent leadership, or underrepresented minority status, etc. See Accepted.com
