Hello everyone, I am Asian student.My UGPA is 2.5/4.0.My degree is math major but it is only 3 yr degree. I am going to take mgre test in April.I think I can get good scores in mgre , gre and toefl. What are my chances admitting for grad school for Phd ? At least for top 400.Is it worth a try mgre with poor academic history ?

2.5 GPA is a real issue, because many programs have a minimum requirement of 3.0 or higher. Often, the department has no control over this: it's set by the graduate division and applies to all graduate programs. I wouldn't bother applying to any PhD programs stating a 3.0 requirement. You may be better off doing a masters degree to try to raise your GPA.
