grad school admissions
is undergraduate gpa really important during grad school admissions? or does gre carry more weight? this doubt keeps on bugging me. Please clarify. Thanks in advance!
- Eric Allen expert The short answer is both are important. As an admissions officer, the 3-5 yrs in an undergraduate program are proof of your performance over a long-period of time, but candidates can be a bit immature. In contrast, the GRE, or whatever test it is, is simply a snapshot of one's ability to perform in an academic setting. They use both to triangulate. The application is a series of data points used to create a trend line - let's hope it points up!
