    I hope so too.... MarkeyG got in with a 3.714 so... as long as things go well.... we should be fine... I'm praying my gpa gets calculated correctly!!!
    What is stressing me now is that I repeated one class but only one time. I'm hearing when they replace your grade they don't affect your GPA unless it was your 3rd attempt at the class. Geez I hope that's the case.......

    Do you think they've calculated gpas and accepted them based on the school of choice? SCF does that between it's two campuses. If one person was truly denied with a 3.7 GPA, yet another was accepted with a 3.66 and yet another was given an alternate seat with a 3.57, then something wacky is going on!! Calculating based on school choice is the only thing I can think of.

    I'm thinking that something is up with thst 3.7... either a repeated course, a miscalculated on someone's part, or miscommunication about the gpa calculation... not completely sure she realized that it was a pre req gpa.... HCC doesn't do preference on location... if that was the case i wouldn't have applied LOL

    I'm thinking that must have been a cum GPA in which mine is 3.88 but they use pre req GPA only. To the best of my knowledge they do not do it based on campus choice. They do it overall and then assign campus after appeals process is over. Campus assignment is based on GPA also...supposedly they go in GPA order and when they get to your GPA if they have available seats at your 1st program choice then you get it if not then you get your 2nd choice && so on....

    Hi to all! So, maybe they used my Trig grade instead of college algebra. That would give me a 3.88 instead of a 3.66. Whatever! I'll take it! So, who's taking the night program at the PC campus with me?

    To all who have asked about my GPA calculation:

    I took Eng. I twice. I took it once in 2001 at HCC and made an A. I took it again in 2007 through an online school (not realizing it was the same class because it wasn't labeled as so) and made a B. According to the academic advisor the committee would use my HCC grade which would give me a 3.81. If for some reason they used my latest grade my GPA would be a 3.67. No way to know which they actually used in their calculations.
