Title: Some Tips for Applicants with Low GPA

What is a GPA?
  • The Grade Point Average (GPA) is an international
    calculation of all grades which a student
    achieved during the studying. It is essential for
    the admissions tutors who can compare results of
    your academic performance with other applicants

  • Besides, potential employers thanks to GPA can
    interpret your results and get to know how good
    you were at school.

  • If you are trying to get accepted to the school
    but have got not so good grades, dont upset. You
    cant let a low GPA stop you from applying to the
    desired course. Here are some helpful tips on how
    to get into college with low GPA.

Apply to lots of schools
  • Do research and find out colleges and
    universities with low GPA requirements. Of
    course, you can apply to top-notch institutions
    but dont get upset if you will be rejected. Find
    graduate schools which are flexible with low GPA
    and forget about giving up!

  • Even applicants with a high GPA quite often dont
    get a chance to get into the desired school. So,
    look for masters programs that accept low GPA and
    still have a good academic reputation and are
    interesting for you. Keep in mind that getting
    from ANY graduate schools is prestigious and
    valuable for your future career.

  • Look for a graduate school which is not
    concentrated only on grades but on the whole
    application package. For this, talk with the
    admission advisor or check admission policy
    whether the school immediately rejects candidates
    with low GPAs or not.

Submit your application early
  • What is a low GPA in college? Quite often it
    means that a student is lazy and sending in your
    application only will prove this prejudice. So,
    do not postpone submitting.

Retake courses in which youve failed
  • In lots of schools, you have the second chance to
    accomplish courses in which you had troubles with
    grades. If you do your best and get better
    scores, your GPA will be higher as well as
    chances to get accepted to college.

Study hard
  • Take some extra courses in a community college or
    at a local university to boost your knowledge in
    the chosen field of study. I got into medical
    school with a low GPA youll be such a person
    for sure.

Create an impressive application portfolio
  • List all your experiences related to the chosen
    course. Include volunteering, internships,
    attending a community college if its relevant.
    You have to present yourself as a proactive and
    hard-working person.

Write a kick-ass personal statement
  • Compose a catchy and amazing PS. Talk about your
    achievements, strengths, abilities and other
    great things that make you special. Also, mention
    good grades youve got in classes relevant to the
    course youre applying.

Admissions Essay
  • One of the essential parts of the application
    package is the admission essay.
    Perfectly-written, engaging and convincing essay
    can make up for a low GPA. Be honest, precise and
    do not bore your readers.

Letter of recommendation
  • A strong recommendation letter can also boost
    your chances to get accepted despite a low GPA.
    Find professors youve cooperated at school and
    ask whether they can help you and your education
    future. Tell them what youve accomplished since
    you took their classes and why you deserve a
    place in college.

Good grades
  • If you still have a semester to finish your
    studying at school, do your best to get straight
    As. If not, come up with convincing and strong
    explanations for your low grades.

Work experience
  • It is not a decisive factor but it matters. If
    you have a low GPA and a great work experience,
    the admissions tutors will ensure that youre
    matured enough and have done a lot for your
    future career and personal growth as well.

Being waitlisted
  • Is it very good if youre waitlisted in lowest
    GPA college. You are not rejected and still have
    chances for success. Send in a letter of
    continued interest to show the admission tutors
    how eager you are to be accepted.

Keep applying
  • If you dont get accepted the first time, dont
    give up. Graduate programs are quite competitive
    so there is no wonder why many students are
    applying not once.

  • Copy your application package, continue studying
    or working and try to apply for the next year.
    Then, your portfolio will be much stronger as
    well as your chances to get in.
