Undergrad vs. Graduate GPA

Postby MTguy » Mon Feb 08, 2010 6:07 pm

Greetings all.

When I went to college straight out of high school I partied too much and ended up quitting with a GPA of around 2.0. I did go back a couple years later and finished my degree with all A's. My end result was a 2.39 GPA for undergrad work. I then went on to complete my MBA with a 3.9 GPA (One B, and I had the high grade in the class!). My question is has anyone seen anything written or heard anecdotally whether admissions committees place emphasis on graduate studies over undergraduate studies?

Nope, you're a 2.39.

This is TCR although your graduate studies can be looked at as a soft (in other words, they don't matter much).

Nope, you'll be considered a 2.39, with the MBA as a positive soft.

Well that stinks! :oops:

Looks like I'll be counting on my softs then! The good news is that I'm planning on a regional school in Montana or the Dakotas.

Thanks for answering my question.
