I have 2.79 GPA IN BACHELORS. Can i get into a decent university in USA. Please mention universities which accepts applicants with lower GPA.

I have recently completed my bachelors in Civil Engineering and i’m intended to apply for Masters in Civil Engineering from Ohio state University. My bachelors CGPA is 2.79. I have gained technical knowledge related to my field and i have a professional field experience of 1 year. Recently i have Published 1 research paper in an international journal. My ielts band is 7.0 overall. I’m concerned about the GPA criteria. It doesn’t accept students application with lower GPA than 3.0.

Hi Zaid, GPA of 2.79 out of 4.0 is not that bad. Moreover, USA universities consider your application holistically, meaning a combination of your GPA, work-ex, GRE scores, SOP, LOR and so on. SO, only your GPA cannot stop you from getting admits, focus on improving other aspects of your profile. You already have relevant work-ex and international paper which is an added advantage. Hope this helps! See more
