upward trend in GPA

Postby missterry » Mon May 17, 2010 4:55 am

does this matter at all for transfer?

I'm inclined to say that it would help.

definitely won't hurt. i definitely think the main thing that matters is your overall gpa/rank. if you aren't within range with your cumulative gpa, i doubt a great second semester alone will carry the day.

Look at the yahoo transfer group. I found quite a few students who transferred schools with GPA's under 3.0 but having a great second semester (one transfer from Cooley to Case with a 2. something after obtaining a 3.5 second semester). Yes, it can be done.

One semester of improvement /=/ "upward trend". HTH.

Obviously, having the higher GPA will help overall, biut not because of a "trend"

The more important question would be whether a declining GPA matters....... :wink:

I heard about a guy (TLS name --why--) who transferred from a T25 to Columbia last year. He dropped from Top 10% to Top 20% second semester, and was still accepted.
