My marks in undergrad were very good (4.0), but my marks in grad school are lower (Somewhere around 3.5 GPA). Does anyone know if schools tend to weight your undergrad, or your graduate marks more?

I've definitely seen some schools that said stuff along the lines of "minimum GPA in undergrad work of 3.0 and minimum GPA in grad work of 3.3." So I'm not sure whether than means they think higher grades in grad school are easier, or if they are more interested in good grades in grad school. I'll try to find a link for a department or two that I saw that.

If it is three years, then u might want to do your MS, because as far as I know most of the schools want you to have four year degree. If it is four year course, then u are fine and can go ahead to take GRE and apply.

Thanks again for your help and I think it will not stop!!
