Re: Maintaining a 3.0 at GW - hard or easy?

I believe the curve is B/B+, with any GPA below 3.0 being bottom third.

Probably not too terribly tough, but not something you can sleepwalk to either.

Super easy dude, just go to class and you'll be top 10% no problem. Study a bit and you got law review in the bag.

i don't think this would be horribly difficult to maintain. would this be your entire 1L year average or just 1st semester? if it's the whole 1st year, i would probably go for it.

you should post this on the other board - there are a few GW students on there

The curve is above a 3.0, but I know a couple of people who got below a 3.0, and they were trying pretty hard. But, I think they figured out what they were doing wrong last semester and will do better this semester, so if it's cumulative for the year to maintain a scholarship I think it's very doable.
