grade drop after receiving offers......

Postby ll7567 » Wed Mar 24, 2010 10:55 am

I got offers from 2 top14 schools this cycle. My gpa overall was 3.5ish. My second and third year gpa were 3.6 and 3.7 respectively.

however, after i got the offers, i really have slacked off a lot. Now i am getting C in a course most likely and B in others. So my gpa this year might be at best 3.0.

do you think they will take back the offer if they see my final transcript (which i have to send to verify my graduation)??????

plz help

You're a senior, you should have accumulated enough credit hours by now that a bad semester isn't going to completely damage your GPA enough to have a school be concerned with it. Now, they may be concerned about your motivation but I don't think they'll gank offers.

my overall gpa might drop from 3.5ish to 3.3. Is that really bad?

have you heard of anyone's offer being taken back before?

anyone else has a view on this?

edit: i emailed them last week and they said they reserve the right to revoke the offer if there is drastic fall in overall gpa..

how big a fall is drastic?

Sounds to me like you better study your tail off and hit finals hard. 3.5 to 3.3 is not a huge drop, but nor is it small. Probably depends on the school. So, no real data, just IMHO.
