I am a graduate architect 3 years removed from receiving an undergraduate degree in architecture from a top-ranked program. I am currently applying to graduate schools that include Harvard, Princeton and Yale, along with a few others. My question is in regards to what these types of programs tend to favor in terms of the students they accept. I feel my portfolio is exceptional in both content and design, and have received letters of recommendation from former professors who assert this. However, my GPA is below 3.0 at a school where 3.0 is considered Dean's List. How much will this affect my chances to gain acceptance into one of these programs, and how can I make up for it in other parts of the application?
