Upgrading GPA? Can it be done for Ivy League?
« on: June 21, 2004, 05:11:22 PM »
I know that some of the CDN schools only look at your last 20 courses when calculating your gpa. Others still allow you upgrade your gpa by taking undergrad courses in addition and subsequent to your undergrad degree. No school in CDN will allow you to upgrade your gpa through a Masters program - although this can be looked on in a nice way when considering peripheal factors.

SO is there any chance in hell a US Ivy Leauge may have a similar policy? How about a top 20?

That would be amazing... my index GPA (last 20 credits) is like a 3.9.

Ivenever heard of that though...

I'd say no chance in hell.  They'll look at trends, but that's as good as you'll get.
