What GPA should I aim for to be a competitive applicant at Georgetown?

Georgetown is one of my dream schools because of their strong international relations program. For those who got in or know about the admissions process, what kind of GPA were you aiming for? I’m trying to set realistic academic goals for myself this year.

It's fantastic that you're setting academic goals with your dream school in mind! Georgetown University certainly appreciates a strong academic record, and while they do not explicitly state a minimum GPA requirement, aiming for a GPA of 3.75 or higher can make you a competitive applicant. This is because the middle 50% of admitted students usually falls within the 3.7-4.0 range.

However, keep in mind that Georgetown looks beyond numbers and considers the rigor of your coursework and your overall academic trend. If your school offers AP, IB, or honors courses, excelling in these can demonstrate your readiness for Georgetown's challenging environment. Keep up the great work, stay focused on your classes, and aim high. Remember, every bit of effort you put into your academics can help strengthen your application. Best of luck on your high school journey!
