GPA requirements for Appalachian State University admissions?

Hey guys, as I'm going through my college list, I'm trying to figure out how my GPA stacks up against different schools' requirements. Does anyone know what the ballpark GPA requirement for Appalachian State University is? Just want to make sure I'm on the right track or if I need to buckle down next semester.

Appalachian State University doesn’t officially publish a 'minimum GPA' for applicants because they look at your application holistically. However, it’s understood that a competitive GPA is necessary since the admissions process can be competitive. Historically, applicants admitted to App State typically have high school GPAs that range from 3.45 - 4.0 on a weighted scale.

Make an effort to continue improving your GPA, but remember that the school also considers the rigorousness of your course load, extracurricular activities, letters of recommendation, and personal statements. If you find your GPA is on the lower end, compensating with strong components elsewhere in your application is advantageous. Just as an example, if you've taken AP classes and scored well on the exams, this could positively offset a slightly lower GPA. Focus on maintaining a strong upward trend in your academic performance—showcasing growth is always a plus.
