  • Waitlisted to VMI

    As I mentioned a while back I applied to VMI as I transfer student from which I have been waitlisted.

    However I also applied to another Virginia school with a good Army ROTC program, James Madison and I was denied. Which came as a shock in this case since I had a college GPA above 3.0 for my first semester.

      Better to be waitlisted than out right denied.

        A lot of schools don't want transfers before two years. You never know why you might be rejected. It may be procedural. Don't take it to heart. Just keep plugging away.

            I recommend to keep taking the common courses most Fresh & Sophomores do.

            I know it's a blow to get knocked down at times but keep climbing back on the horse.

            I applied for the Coast Guard Academy when I graduated from high school & was turned down. Looking back at my grades that didn't surprise me any.

            But, a few years later I got into a very selective graduate program due to guess what? My grades. When I got on the GI Bill and got serious I was always on the Presiden't Honor Roll. So, your life can change to what you want it to, sometimes it's just not the first thing you want, or apply for.

              3.0 is nothing to be ashamed of, but...

              We have friends with kids nearing university age. We've heard stories of people with 3.9 GPA's being rejected from some schools or some popular programs in schools. Some places can be pretty picky these days.

                What's a 3.0 grade? (for all us weirdos who use 3 digits for a grade...)

                  Golani,

                  On a 0 to 4.0 system, a 3.0 is a "B". That is nothing to sneeze at, but the Valedictorian and Salutorian of the graduating class will have around a 3.9. My gpa in college could never get above 2.9999 as I had some bad grades when I first went to college. My last trip through school had me Deans List and Honor Roll about equally in 10 semesters.

                    So that would make it a 085 average?
                    That's pretty darn good.

                      Golani,

                      Depending on the system used, a 3.0 can be a 88% to a 93%. It depends on the school. A ten point system would have a B as 80% to 89%.

                        My GPA is most likely higher then the 3.1/3.2 it was last semester. Now it's most likely around 3.5-3.7.

                        So yes pretty good.
