I applied to UNR earlier this year, even though I knew I didn't meet the requirments as I wanted to apply through Special Consideration.
I have a 2.4 GPA mainly because my sophomore and junior years in high school were a blur of family disasters, one after the other.
I did get denied, and I've been talking to my admissions counselor and I'm trying to get a 4.0 this semester, along with letters of recommendation and a personal statement to get accepted.
But I read on UNR's website that if a student doesn't meet the GPA requirment, that an SAT combined Reading&Math score of 1050 would take care of it. My combined Reading&Math score is 1090.
Is my GPA too low for this to count?
Anyone else applied through special consideration?
Journalism major by the way.
