Summer programs that give aid but I could also get into with a relatively low GPA (3.4)?
Answered

Hi guys, I have become very interested in summer programs but have monetary limitations... I have a low GPA of 3.36, but have had a decent upward trend the past semester. I was hoping some of you guys may have had experience applying to such programs with a >3.5 GPA?

Thanks.

I will say that’s a bit hard if you want to get into some prestigious summer programs, although it isn’t possible, I’ll say it’s better to improve more your grades first, and then apply to some good ones, and you also need to know the type of summer programs you are interested in, for example STEM, humanities, etc.
