What graduate schools accept a 3.6 GPA?

I know a 3.6 overall tends to be on the low side for college, but what grad schools generally accept applicants with a GPA around that number?

I'm hoping there are some people on here can give me some insight. Thanks.

Average GPA's are different for different schools. I don't consider a 3.6 on the 'low' end, unless we aren't talking about a 4 point scale.

I think my final GPA was 2.8, and I was a business major.

engineering GPA's generally cannot be directly compared to business degree GPA's

basically business schools are generally a hell of a lot easier than engineering schools.

Most top tier MBA prgrams won't let you in until you have X number of years exprience in the field. Then your undergrad GPA isn't as important as what you did with it. Reach out to a few schools and talk to them.

Sure is...but grad schools only want the best. As a university, you don't want to hand out masters and phds to just anyone.
