Kirkland Houston Office Selectivity/GPA cutoff

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jun 19, 2017 9:37 pm

What would the GPA cutoffs be (for OCI and in general) for UH/SMU range,ND/BU/Emory range and UT range? If this is too particular a question, how selective are they?

What is the difference between "OCI" and "in general?" Also you obviously don't go to three schools at once so this question is kind of strange IMO.

I don't have any inside knowledge but based on people I knew at UT, guessing their cutoff was around top 3rdish?

They're among the more selective. Median GPA from UT was a 3.75+ which is higher than V&E, BB, and NRF. That's at least top 25%.

OP here, I agree that was an odd question. Mind if I PM you BigZuck? I've seen you post on many Texas related threads, and would like to hear your advice on some matters.

They interviewed at least a few people from SMU last year at our Houston OCI and I believe their cut was top 10%. Could be wrong though. I know of one SMU student doing their SA there now.

New Vault Texas rankings were released today. I would assume their criteria is very similar to the other top 5 firms on the list which is very high.
