Development Studies--BS major okay? 3.81

Postby yucles » Sun Apr 26, 2015 6:15 pm

Hi all,

Applying for the 15'-16' cycle. I graduated berkeley with a 3.81/170 in development studies but i'm a little worried that my major will be frowned upon because a lot of my classes were "filler." Should I expect to perform just as my numbers would indicate? fwiw okay softs, okay rec letters, looking for a scholarship at a lower T-14.

This is what I imagine they'll see. You'll be fine.

it's going to provoke eye rolls at OCI; won't hurt you for admissions. I would retake though to guarantee yourself big money in the lower T14.
