Median GPA at BU

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Feb 04, 2013 8:53 am

Does anyone know what the median GPA at BU is?
They only give the Top 1/3

If you're below a 3.0 how do you explain to employers if the curve is a B/B+ (really messed up this semester...no Cs but still)

My understanding is that it's pretty close to a 3.3. Below a 3.0 is bottom third (or worse).

OP here.

Okay, that's what I figured. I'm just under a 3.0 it sucks I need to obviously be more strategic in classes and take the max. # of credits allowed.

If you're not applying to Boston firms, though, how would anyone know what BU's median is? But yeah, I think getting your GPA above a 3.0 would be hugely helpful.
