Are you currently in or have you graduated from a Data Science masters program? What was your undergrad GPA? How do you like it?

I’ll start: just started a program at St Thomas (local school in Minneapolis). Undergrad 3.0 in COMP sci.
Grad Program is alright. Debating whether I️ should do a program online but afraid I may not get in because of my undergrad. Berkeley’s and other programs seem to have people with at least an 3.5 undergrad.

    what your undergrad was in is a lot more important than gpa

      That definitely plays a part. I’ll add that to the main post

    I’m not sure I get the point of your question.

    I’ve done a data science masters. Undergrad was 23 years ago. Don’t care to share GPA but not sure why it matters.

    2 years after college no one cares about GPA

      That’s what I’m hoping! Some programs say that you must have a minimum undergrad GPA but don’t mention anything about work experience. I’ve got a 10 year DBA career under my belt and hope that they look at that instead of my undergrad GPA.
