I think you need at least a 3.8. For graduate school, the application makes its way to the department you're applying to. So the most important thing is your recommendation letters. The faculty at MIT will be reading letters from their colleagues at UCLA, many of them will know each other professionally. If you get strong letter, you can afford to have a lower GPA (say if you got a B in comparative literature, but all A's in Engineering and math/science, then you should still be ok).

In general, Keller and Devry are not well respected schools. I'd be especially wary of going to any for-profit school for a graduate degree. You'd do better going to your local state college than you would going to Keller, in terms of reputation with employers. Be cautious.

Depends on where you plan to work. In Silicon Valley you demonstrate your technical prowess on the job and you'll advance. Noone talks about masters degree in IS around these parts. The trick is getting in the door. Seems like most get in with a specific skill - like programming, data communications (Cisco CCIE) or MSCE or just come in with skills in Unix learned by late nights of practice.

For high ranking schools (US News and World Report) and Ivy league schools such as MIT, you can imagine the thousands of applications they receive every year. Most of these colleges don't have enough time to read every single one, just the best. I know the Admissions officer for Ohio State University and they use a computer program to automatically seed out people with a certain GPA and test score. If they are doing it, it's a good bet that MIT is two steps ahead. The average GPA needed for MIT is a 4.0 on a 4.0 scale. For Ivy schools, it's almost a given that you get a 4.0. Good luck and hope to see you here soon!

Tiberius Originally Answered: Can I get into graduate school for biological sciences or medical school with a BA in Biology?
A BA is fine for grad school. I got a PhD in physics with a BA in physics. Of course, there are a lot more than bio classes required for med school - the bio major alone doesn't qualify you.

I am Pre-Med Biology as well (BS). If you are applying to Med school it does not matter what degree you have as long as you did well and graduated with a Bachelors. Will they ask you why you got a BA instead of a BS? Certainly, they ask everyone why their chose the major. Med schools look at so much more, your major is only a small part. They want to see you are well rounded, compassionate, driven, and intelligent. I will this though, if you do not get into med school and decided to pursue a Masters or PHD in science having a BA versus a BS will probably hurt your chances.
