On the one hand, if they were totally into numbers, they would have already rejected me. It's something else they like (if I had to guess I'd say my PS, GPA addendum was a big help.)
On the other hand, if it really IS something else they like, and they're willing to overlook the numbers, why do my grades last semester matter?
Thoughts? Please...I'm dying here.
I think that if it raises your cumulative you should be fine. How big of a dropoff was it from the upward trend?
Spring 2009 was my highest GPA. It was 0.2 higher than last semester. The thing is, my numbers are 161, 3.08. It's a REACH and I know it. I have a GPA Addendum that explains the grades and a good PS. I think I have pretty good softs too...worked in undergrad, strong student leader position, etc.
I think they very easily could have flat out rejected me...so idk what to make of this. WDYT?
