I don't know exactly, but a good GPA will only help you obviously. It may not be their biggest concern, but they do look at your high school academic performance.

probably quite a bit. i will be enrolling at University of Houston and the school of Human Sciences requires a 2.5 g.p.a. i know it isn't berklee but their is a definite correlation between g.p.a. and admissions.

the berklee website has a lot of useful information about admissions

by far, the biggest factor is your audition. i dont know about gpa, but they don't take SAT scores into consideration.

Not very much. A dumbass friend of mine is in his freshman year at Berklee. He had around a 3.0/5.0

To my knowledge, Berklee has a very low academic standard, so as long as you're not clinically retarded, you should be fine.


Compared to, say, Berkley, which has an average incoming GPA of over 4.0.

You should stop being such a prick. It was an honest mistake on his part, and he apologized for it.

As far as GPA, one of my friends got in this year with around a 3.4/4 I think, so it doesn't need to be really high, just decent.

Same question, but with Emerson instead of Berklee?

Do you guys know if there's an age requirement/cap for Berklee? I want to finish my undergrad that I'm doing right now, and grad in Engineering, then get a job and work for 10 years or something and save up a bunch of money so I can live off that while I hopefully study at Berklee later on. That would be nice.

3. The supporting materials:

* Your academic transcripts, including your most recent high school transcript or GED, and a college transcript if you have already completed a minimum of 24 college credits at another institution. International applicants must provide official English translations of their transcripts.

Berklee does not require SAT or ACT scores. While you may choose to include your test scores if they are an area of strength, our audition and interview process provides us with a wealth of information to assess each applicant's musical aptitude and ability to succeed at Berklee.

* Applicants are asked to provide a contact name, address, phone, and email information for an instrumental or vocal instructor.

* Applicants for whom English is not their primary language should submit a TOEFL score or provide a contact name, address, phone, and email information for an English language instructor.

with a 3.2 you should be fine. i think what they really want is that you show some talent and musicianship on your audition.
