grad school admissions & "minimum GPA" The question is: will this school likely reject my application, based on too-low GPA. The problem is that I haven't found a good way to determine this. Most schools put their "minimum GPA" on a website, but it seems this is misleading. For example, take Berkeley. Both gradschoolshopper.com and Berkeley's site (http://www.grad.berkeley.edu/admissions/admis_require.shtml) put the minimum GPA at a 3.0. It seems obvious to me that if someone with a 3.0 applied for physics or engineering grad school at Berkeley, they'd flatly get rejected. So, is there any resource that shows the actual stats, historically, of the people who got in. Disclaimer: I appreciate the fact that GRE scores, both general and physics, as well as previous research experience, published work, and letters of reference also play a very significant role. But I'd like to know the story on this whole "minimum GPA" thing regardless.
