My options?

  1. Sep 10, 2007 #1
    Long story short: I became addicted to poker last semester; my grades plundered, and as a result my GPA dropped to 2.82. I'm in my last year of an undergraduate degree in math. Should I stay a semester or two longer so I can improve my GPA? I can easily obtain a minor in computer science; should I do it? Or should I take more math classes, maybe some graduate level math classes? Should I take the GRE now? My goal is to eventually enter graduate school in math or comp sci. Thanks for your suggestions in advance.

    If you can take some courses that will allow you to bring your grades up, it would probably be a good idea to stay. You can still get into grad school with your GPA, your choices will just be limited some.

    Good luck

    When you do apply for grad schools make sure that you mention any research experience, internships, or tutoring experience you have had. This can only help according to what I've been told (Still an undergrad myself.).
