Was wondering if I could pick your brains about this.
Here's my story:
I'm an Electrical Engineering student at Wright State, and I'll most likely graduate in March of 2011. I want to start working after I get my Bachelor's degree because I'm 22 and I'm ready to start making money, but I do still want to pursue a Master's Degree.
I'm hoping I can get into UD for grad school. On the surface, I should meet the requirements. UD requires a BSEE to get into their MSEE program and atleast a 3.0. I currently have a 3.441 at Wright State and I will have my BS.
The only thing I'm concerned about on admissions requirements is that before I went to Wright State, I attended Miami for 3 years and I was a bit of a slacker there. My GPA at Miami was around 2.7-2.8ish if I remember correctly. Long story short, I just went through the motions and I eventually had a wake up call, and then I transferred to Wright State and I'm loving my major there, and it shows.
So, would a school like UD see my lower GPA at Miami and not take me because of that, or do they only care about the GPA of the degree-granting insitution? If I remember correctly, OU and UC only care about the GPA from your degree-granting institution. But I know UD is a private school, so they can be a little stricter about that stuff.
I also plan to take the GRE, even though I'm sure it will be a pain to study for since I also want to take the FE (Fundamentals of Engineering exam) at the time of my graduation.
Any insight is greatly appreciated.
