2.6 GPAs or lower
starting Fall 2009.
Man, that's rough.† :
The reasoning is that "FTIC students admitted to FAU from Fall 2002 through Fall 2006 who presented GPAs of 2.6 or below, regardless of offsetting standardized test scores, achieved on average less than a 2.0 FAU GPA by the end of their first year."
I remember my dad telling me that I didn't need to go to FAU, that college was a priviledge and I decided that failing wasn't acceptible, so I worked my butt off.
Failure is the best thing that can happen to anyone, I firmly believe.
(I finished with over a 3.0 gpa by the way)
Not everyone can be UF with 45k students that made it their first choice. I'm glad FAU is trying to make itself more selective.
