The fact they want your grades is probably a good sign. The fact you dropped...not so good.

I think the fact that they're asking means that they're genuinely considering you. That's good. As for your GPA dropping...yeah, that's not so great, BUT! with only a .01 decrease I honestly don't think it's going to matter much. I think the primary purpose for asking for grades is to make sure you didn't bomb your Fall semester (as opposed to fishing for upward trends).

So, personally, I think that since your Fall grades are (mostly) in line with your previous work they're going to decide just as they were before asking, one way or the other.

Thanks any other insight would be greatly appreciated?
