How much does a low cumulative grade point average affect an otherwise strong application? Unfortunately, due to a series of circumstances, my grades from my early undergraduate years were fairly poor. I left school to work full-time and returned after an 8 year hiatus to finish my degree. My cumulative GPA is only 2.5/4.0, however my GPA for all upper division business courses during the last two years is up to a 3.7. I am nearly complete with my degree in Accounting, Finance and General Management from a public US University. I plan on taking the GMAT in January 2012 and ,based on practice exams, expect to score at least in the low to mid 600's. I know that the only chance of explaining my situation would be in an interview. Does my application even stand a chance with such a low GPA or will it get binned at the get go?

p.s. My primary interest is in International Business

@EJ3

I would suggest that you try to get a high GMAT. OUr average GMAT is 684 in the current class and the median GMAT is 690 and you should look at scoring much higher than that to reassure us that your undergrad performance is not a true reflection of your academic abilities.

All the best.

Does Cambridge allow a student to defer studies for a year?

I am very interested in the MBA program right now but am intending to enter for the 2013-2014 year so that I may get a year more experience and work internationally. If I apply for the 2012 year and am accepted, is it possible to defer for one year, or do I have to decline and completely re-apply for 2013?

This brings up another question. If I apply for the 2012 school year and am rejected, is it possible that Cambridge admissions can provide feedback as to what my shortcomings were? If I were rejected for 2012, it would be nice to know what I can do to improve my chances for 2013, if anything at all.

Thanks,
Aaron

We do allow deferrals but candidates must demonstrate that the additional year that they take out will enhance their overall application. But if you are set on starting in 2013, the question would be why apply now when the extra year working would, in your view, give you more international work experience? You could do some prep now, e.g. sit for GMAT and gather undergrad transcripts if those activities become more difficult in the coming year.

Hi All,

I have a question regarding Cambridge's first essay where I am supposed write about issues in my sector in next 3 years. All my career I have worked for Indian IT Giants like Infosys, Wipro and TCS. Should I say my sector as Indian IT sector or I have to talk around IT sector in general?

Thanks,

Thanks for answering my previous questions as it has been very helpful in my MBA search.

The Cambridge MBA curriculum lists "Summer Activities" from July-August the year of graduation along with a variety of options a student can choose from. I was wondering if a student is allowed to complete an internship of his or her choosing during this period?

Or hypothetically if I were accepted to a summer associate internship that lasted from June-August the year of graduation, would I be allowed to participate in it if I attended Cambridge?

Thanks again,

@Shanghaizzle

Yes, you can take up an internship during the summer months that would count towards your Summer Activity. I know of some students who left the day after their last class to start their summer internships.

I have applied to Mfin course a week back and had few questions.
1) What is the class size you are looking at for your mfin batch starting in 2012?
2) What is the number of applications that you receive for your mfin course?
3) I have read somewhere that JBS conducts interview in India too. Is my information right?

I can't answer the MFin questions per se but we have about 45 students this year. The MBA program will be conducting interviews in India at the end of the year but as far as I know, there are no plans for the MFin program to do so.

As per latest announcement in UK Border Agency website, it states the following-

"The post study work route, which has allowed graduates free labour market access, will be closed and students wishing to stay and work will need to apply under the skilled workers visa route . There will also be new time limits on student visas and tougher rules on work placements."

This announcement came on 2 Nov and hence looks like they are going to further strict the immigration clauses.

How does applying under the skilled workers visa route different than applying from a post study work route ?

As a college representative, do you have any info on what more changes are they planning to do in terms of "new time limits" on student visas. It's already only 16 months for a 12 month program. Are they thinking of abolishing even these 4 months and any insight into the supposedly tougher work placements?

I tried looking into your blog under the tag "Visa" but couldn't find any new info. If you can throw some light on the recent developments, i'll highly appreciate that.

I am planning to apply to Cambridge in Round 2. One of my recommender will be able to submit the reco before the deadline. But my other recommender got some last minute work because of which he might not be able to submit my reco before the Round 2 deadline.

My question is, in case my recommender is a little late in submitting my reco (may be 2-3 days late), can I still be considered for Round 2 or will be then be considered for Round 3.

Please let me know what's the school's policy on this.

Thanks
