I got my long waited UMichigan rejection... I am still waiting for Michigan State... I am not sure whats going on with them... It is my second time applying.. and ended up with unfunded offer at Rutgers... will decline and apply next year! It feels it is almost impossible to get into the top 25 schools with a GPA less than 3.5 ! I have a 3.4 Masters GPA from a top 5 US School, and masters are looked down upon although it is all math and stats classes ! I also have research experience but i dont think they check your application if you don't make the GPA cut off ... i should have taken easier classes and aimed at a 3.7 to get better offers rather than taking math/stats and ending up with Bs ! ! that is my takeaway !
