Tagged: What is my chance?
Thank you very much for your response.
I switched my major to political science after bombing pre med and realizing it wasn’t for me. My GPA since is about a 3.8 and before it was 2.5. Will the 2.5 prevent me from getting into a good grad school program for polisci?
Thanks for your post. I’m afraid the 2.5 is going to be a tough barrier. You will need to focus on graduate schools that are a bit more flexible in their admission criteria. You should also be clear and address why your grades are low – take every opportunity you can to “explain” your story of pre-med being a mistake for you (not making excuses though). Highlight your recent grades. Be sure to select Letters of recommendation from professors that will directly address and speak to your academic performance and potential. Your GRE scores will be critical as well.
Good luck in your studies.
