Do I have a chance at a Stanford PhD program, or should I save the application money? I just want to manage expectations.


I would like to go to graduate school at Stanford for Linguistics, but I have some concerns about my GPA. My undergrad GPA was a 3.62 cumulative, because I decided to take on a Computer Science major in addition to Linguistics. I struggled in the classes, and did mostly B work. My major GPA for Linguistics is a 3.97, and I have two papers currently submitted for review (one in semantics and one in natural language processing). I think I can get some very strong letters of recommendation from professors I have worked with, but they are not famous professors. Do I still have any chance at Stanford grad school with such a low GPA? Do they even look at applications with less than a 3.7?
