I have a horrible GPA from my undergrad... a 2.58 with a 2.25 in my major coursework. I should also mention that I took 97 hours at the 3/400 level when the university only required 30...so as you can see I try the more difficult courses instead of opting for the easy way out...thus the low GPA. I have to take the GRE if I want to get into grad school and I'm pretty sure I can get the 3 letters of recommendation....could those 2 as well as my purpose statement help to buffer me? What are the odds of me getting into grad school? Should i even bother? The ones I am considering applying to do not have GPA requirements listed....Answer Question

Most grad programs require a 3.0. If a program requires a 3.0 they won't look at your application unless you have a 3.0. It's not fair but that's the way it is. You could try to get into a program that doesn't have GPA requirements, get A's and try and transfer.
