I have a low GPA, what should i do?

  • I have a really low GPA. Will I still be able to apply for an MS in the USA?

  • Hi Shruti, your application depends upon your overall profile. Universities consider factors such as your GRE/TOEFL/IELTS score, if you have job experience, and if you have some research papers published, etc. It also helps a lot of you have any volunteering experience. So, if your profile is impressive enough then a low GPA is not that big of an issue. And if you have not started yet, start building your profile. A strong profile increases your chances of getting into the program and the university of your choice. You can also look for universities that have low GPA eligibility criteria.
