    Have you taking the GRE? If so what did you score? When do you plan on applying?

    I would say yes because you should never be comfortable. You have to think about your GPA and possibly how many people have the same GPA or higher GPA than you do. From what I was informed, a interview isn't always extended if you meet the requirements. Once interviewed decision is made relatively fast either by mail or by phone. Phone interview is acceptable in extreme conditions if not able to make it in person. Interview is the deal breaker. It seems like mostly everyone from our old chat who got invited for an interview got accepted. Also, my GPA requirements have increased since then, so we shall see. I plan on submitting my application no later than Sunday, and I will keep you all in the loop of how that goes. You will receive additional emails after submitting your application.
    So we need to pray not to have such competitive mates! Praying we all get in. You really don't get to find out what your GPA would be until almost last minute which makes it scary! I hope all goes well with us all. I thought if you meet the requirements you are good I didn't know you have to be screened to. I am sure prayer will resolve it all. I am highly favored!! Thanks for the update!!

    Hello, is there a reason why you want to retake your GRE? Well we just praying that we don't have too many people with higher GPA which would make it more competitive also they really do not use the prerequisites GPA but they advice you get mostly As and Bs.

    Hey guys! I'm also applying for Fall 2018 entry and I'm extremely nervous! My overall GPA is average, 3.31 but I transferred to GSU for my last 2 years and graduated from there with a 4.03. I'm really hoping they take that into consideration! I'm most nervous about my GRE score, I didn't study and scored exactly 290. I've been thinking of retaking it but sitting through that exam was torturous. I wish everyone the best during this application cycle!

    If you don't mind me asking how did you graduate with above a 4.0?
