Depends on what major you're interested in. I'd say 3.5 and above is a safe bet, but certain programs are more competitive and others might accept lower GPAs.

what about 3.4? i'd be going for my bachelor's degree in city planning. i have been working since I was age 14-15, so the prior work experience part I have met. I take my ACT and SAT in winter, so Im probably going to get average test scores. I'm in track and field, and cross country. I was in Key Club my freshmen and sophomore years. I took Anatomy which is an upper science class, and then I have taken 2 years of Spanish. Then I took ROP Technical Theater, and I'm a Life Scout of Boy Scouts of America. Also I got 43 out of 172 in my class rank.

I'd say that's an acceptable GPA. You'd have to apply to find out for sure!

I have my B.S. in CRP from Cal Poly. :-) Fantastic program.

When I went there 10 years ago, CRP was one of the easiest majors to get in to. All depends on your competition - only so many openings.

See if you can apply and claim hardship, since you are local. may be an angle you can use.

City, it wouldn't be too hard to call Admissions. I *do* know that grades and scores have to be excellent because that is all Admissions cares about .. no essay, no touchy-feely stuff. One of my students who swims for Poly (in his first year) was also accepted to Harvard. These days (as opposed to when I got my BA there in 2004) are very competitive.
