2 YR GPA vs Cumulative

Recommended Posts

Just curious if anyone has had success getting into Queens with a very poor cumulative GPA (around 2.9/3.0) but high 2-year (3.8-3.9)? If your 2-year satisfies the cutoffs do they not even look at your cumulative history? I guess I am wondering how much your holistic academic history matters or if they just need 2 years of solid grades.

I am wondering what the requirements are to have your last 2 years considered, rather than your cumulative GPA? I know that the website says 3 courses a semester is considered "full time" even though it's not a full course load, so if you only took 3 courses a semester for your last 2 years would they take that GPA rather than cumulative GPA?
Sorry... I'm sure this has been answered elsewhere but couldn't find a definitive answer!

I also think that they calculate both 2 yr and cumulative for every applicant, but I'm not sure how they decide which to use for a given application.

To clarify, they take the higher of the two calculated GPAs. The lower GPA is dropped and won't negatively affect your application.
