Bringing up My GPA

  1. May 26, 2010 #1
    So I am entering my 5th semester of engineering next fall (junior year). I currently have a 2.7 gpa due to a little bit of slacking not to mention engineering is not easy. I have experienced dropping my gpa, obviously, but ive never experienced raising my gpa. =\, do you think that if I get a 3.5 for the next two semesters my gpa will bump up to a 3.0 at least? Thanks for the input.

    (4 x 2.7 + 2 x 3.5)/6 = 2.97

    So your answer is "no".

    You went through 2 years of engineering without knowing how to calculate your GPA?
