Applicants with lower GPA’s than those listed should still consider applying but should be prepared to provide any explanations and show strengths in other areas. All completed applications are individually
reviewed and scored by external professional educators who look beyond the GPA in a holistic review process. Applicants with less competitive GPAs should be able to demonstrate overall success, achievement
