It's possible but honestly, I only really wanted to transfer because my friends from high school go there (and it does look better for getting into their vet school). After talking with their Admissions, it seems like their biology college is pretty competitive and I'm not sure I'll have the GPA by the end of this semester to get in. I really like my current school, but it's been extremely difficult for me to make friends so the past year has been really rough & depressing. I figured if I fall in love with my sorority & can make some good friends, I'll have no problem staying where I am.

@Sororitysock I am in a sorority actually.

Good grades, community service, a good personality, beauty, rec letters, etc, all contribute to a girl getting a bid. I understand. But this topic is on GPA so that's what I was talking about.
Yet less than 24 hours ago, in this very thread, you said you were hoping you'd get a chance in spite of your lackluster GPA because of your "hard major."

It looks better if you took all AP/honors classes and got a 3.8 GPA versus someone who got a 3.9 taking all standard classes, right? I don't think all other majors are easier. All majors get more difficult over time. But I do think some are not as challenging and it's worth noting. For example, engineering major vs photography major with the same GPA...

I do know quite a few girls I went to high school with that are in top tier sororities at big universities but graduated with a 3.0-3.2 GPA. They are exceptionally beautiful though so I do think that might have something to do with it...
Your timeline is quite dubious.

Did you ever think maybe I was waiting to hear back? You don't have to believe me. I don't care. I don't have anything to prove to strangers on an online forum lol

Did you ever think we know how these things work? You really expect us to believe you literally accepted a bid within the last couple of hours yet are spending time with "strangers on an online forum" instead of with your sorority? Much believable.

Um yes, I did. literally earlier today. I haven't gotten a chance to even meet my sorority sisters. Currently doing homework on my laptop so yeah it's not very hard to switch tabs & respond to you. Not sure why you think you know everything that must be going on in my life.

Pardon if I missed something in these posts, but how does someone get a bid "but not have met their sisters"?? That seems very, very odd and like OP doesn't know how rush really works.

I have a question about GPA. Do the Universities normally give the chapters the weighted or unweighted GPA? Also, if a woman is a transfer, does the University normally give the chapter her high school GPA or her college GPA?

For freshmen, it's non weighted. For upperclass, whether transfer or not, it's college only.

And that is what I *thought* we were supposed to get. But one of the Universities I work with seems to have given us a mix of weighted and non-weighted, and maybe a couple of the transfers information had their HS listed instead. I just wanted to find out what is the norm.....or what we are SUPPOSED to get.

Thanks!

I am curious on this point.

My high school did not weight GPA at all. If you got a B in an honors or AP course, your transcript listed the honors/AP course but also listed the B.

My husband's high school did weight GPAs. His GPA was pulled down because he was in the chorus, which was considered a class, and, even though he got straight A's, he was not tapped for valedictorian or salutatorian for this reason.
