Hello! Your nervousness is completely understandable; college applications can be quite daunting. Regarding GPA expectations, the University of Cincinnati's 2024 class had an average high school GPA of around 3.74. That being said, keep in mind that it isn't a strict threshold; admissions are evaluated based on a combination of your academic profile, extracurricular involvement, and other factors.

If your GPA falls short of the average, it doesn't automatically exclude you from consideration. They might look at the rigor of your course load - a slightly lower GPA with a challenging curriculum can still impress colleges, as it shows ambition and a willingness to step outside of the comfort zone. Furthermore, your personal statement, ec's, and letters of recommendation can also help balance out your GPA.

Remember, while your GPA is certainly an important element of your application, colleges evaluate the entirety of student profiles to allow for a contextual evaluation. Good luck with your application to University of Cincinnati! It's a wonderful school with a lot to offer.
