hi what's the strategy of graduate schools when they accept or deny applicants? if I finish my bachelor degree with a strong GPA like 3.6 and above but from a normal school like Cleveland State university while this school is accredited for sure ,will I have a chance when applying to schools like UIUC,purdue,UT and A&M for the graduate level? I mean when having a high GPA ,will that increase your chance getting into schools like the above ?? wherever you come from?
