I wanted to know about Eller's GPA criteria. My university provides CGPA. However, the grade points we had were in 2 point increments. If I use the Non-CGPA conversion I get a GPA of 3.79/4. And If I use a the CGPA conversion, I get a GPA of 2.62/4.
I sent a mail regarding this to Cinda to which I got the standard use last 2 year or 4 sem reply, with which I get a GPA of 2.82/4.
I was worried about the minimum 3 GPA criteria. Do you guys have any idea about this?

Generally, the university converts your CGPA to GPA using their own criteria.
You just enter 0.0 in GPA field.
Am not sure how it works with Eller. You can post this in univ specific thread.
Bottom Line: My suggestion would be never convert your cgpa on your own. Let the admissions committee do it.

Got my WES evaluation. Screwed big time. Sad
2.41/4.
I don't understand what they've done with the evaluation. My university has grades in steps of 2 ( A-10, B-8, C-6...). In the report, they've given me grades in steps of 2 (A, B, and C only). They've not considered the '-' & '+' at all.
I've sent them a mail regarding this, but I'm not sure how this is going to help.
This is even less than the direct conversion to 4 :/

I had sent my transcripts to UIUC for some query, and even they gave me a conversion of 3

Just wanted to know if it's worth applying to TAMU anymore? Applying CMU since there's no fee.
Or should I apply and provide an explanation?

Hi Guys,
Got my TOEFL score as well today. Scored 104 (R-22,L-29,S-26,W-27)

I'm in the process of finalizing applications. Just wanted final suggestions on these universities.

1. NYU (MSIS)
2. University of Arizona - Eller (MIS)
3. University of Washington (MSIM)
4. CMU (MISM)
5. Uni Michigan-Ann Arbor (MSI)
6. UIUC (MSIM)
7. UT Austin (MSIS)
8. University of Cincinnati (MSIS)
9. TAMU (MIS)
10.University of Illinois at Chicago (MIS)
11.UMCP (MSIS)

I've sent my free score reports to NYU, UoA, TAMU & CMU.
Also, I've prepared the university specific material for all above. I plan on submitting applications in Jan 1st week (waiting for college to reopen for LOR from HOD)

Thanks!

Tagging seniors

1. NYU (MSIS) - V AMBI
2. University of Arizona - Eller (MIS) - HIGH MOD
3. University of Washington (MSIM) - V AMBI
4. CMU (MISM) - MOD
5. Uni Michigan-Ann Arbor (MSI) - AMBI
6. UIUC (MSIM) - SAFE (NOT VERY SAFE) LAST YEAR MANY ADMITS WERE GIVEN
7. UT Austin (MSIS) - AMBI
8. University of Cincinnati (MSIS) - MOD
9. TAMU (MIS) - AMBI 9BASED ON WES OF 2.4)
10.University of Illinois at Chicago (MIS) - SAFE

University of Washington is not very ambi - It should be Mod-Ambi at your GRE score. I understand that your GPA is a little low but all the universities mentioned above are not beyond your reach. A good piece of SOP and LOR's will help you to make you to one of the Ambi's


On a seperate Note maddy1621 : What is the criteria that you use to mark a university as AMBI or Very Ambi ?

For example, I see NYU and UoW as Very Ambi but Mc Combs as Ambi ?

Thanks for your input Silent_Killer Smile

In simple words, its more or less saying it is difficult or very difficult to get into XYZ university.
N ambi n v ambi criteria of above mentioned univs,
UoW/NYU - majority of profiles have higher experience and GRE/GMAT
If i have UoW/MCCombs - For me (based on profiles I have seen) its comparatively easy (yet difficult) to get into UTAustin as per the profile we have here.

I will agree to you with NYU for this particular profile. But in my opinion UoW should not be classified as Very Ambi.
