I would love to go to MSU, but I have a low GPA. Right now it is 3.1. I am only a freshman in high school, so I do have time to make it up. But is it too low to get into a college like this? I am a pretty good test taker though.

Is 3.1 GPA too low to get into Michigan State University?

B = 3 points
C = 2 points
D = 1 point
F = 0 points
To find your GPA, take your letter grade, find the corresponding point value and multiply it by the number of credits. Sum up all of these grades and divide by number of credits.
Ex. You have 3 classes, each worth 3 credits. You get 1 A, 1 B, 1 C. 3(4) + 3(3) + 3(2) = 27. 27/9 = 3.0 GPA, or a B average.

You should be good to go with a 3.1. It all comes down to the application process. Make sure you make the application look neat. Make your essays sound great. I know people that went to some good business schools with a 580/800 GMAT score. I got a 650 and I still went to an ok school because I couldn't afford to pay the good schools. Sucks ass.

Anyways, I wouldn't sweat not the ability to pay to go to a top B school. A top B school degree may help you get the interview, but it's going to come down to your personal drive, intelligence, communications skills, personability, etc as the deciding factor to your success.

I got a 2.0
Cause I was moron freshman and soph year. It doesnt bother me, I planned on going to a junior college for a year or two anyways. Including, I'm saving my parents money and my dad had like a 2.0 when he graduated highschool, he screwed around a lot. Went to a junior college, then went to college. And now makes more than the average person at a very high profile job.
It's a C average, Not bad, Not great. It's a average grade. But also a interesting point in my school is that they teach college level **** for regular highschool students. My teachers that went to my highschool that the core classes we have jr and senior year are just preparing you for college. They said the classes that we're in will be classes we more than likely will be in freshman and sophomore year in college. One said the first 2 years of college were just reviews for her cause my highschool already taught her the curriculum.
