I'm a Journalism specialist (new program, I think that's what it's called) and an English major. Are you going into fourth year as well?
That's pretty super that the adcomms realize that our GPAs are special. My ex-girlfriend's mom was head of the biology dept. at University of Cincinnati. A few years ago she told me that the minimum req. was 3.7 for her program. Although, she routinely admitted people from Canadian schools with a 3.3. But I figured she would do so because her daughter was at Mcgill and she knew that GPAs were lower. But good to know. Very good to know. I've been put in a pretty good mood for the rest of the day.
