What was your class rank? What percentage of the class, roughly, had a higher GPA than you?

Thank you so much for your reply.

I'm really sorry that I have not prepared all the above-mentioned information. I will collect all information that you mentioned above and post a new topic in this forum again. However, I believed I have around 60% percentile in the class (~40% of the class have higher GPA than I have). The low GPA mainly stems from my financial problem, I have to work so hard as a part-time programmer to support very expensive tuition cost (since it's international private college -> about 5times more expensive, yet I chose to study here because I believe English is essential to my future career). Moreover, I have 2 semesters experience being a Teacher-Assistant for one programming class since I did very well in programming course.

Best Regards,

You don't have to apologize. I don't normally ask those questions. But sometimes a foreign GPA is translated and the translation represents it as much lower than it really it. I was hoping this is the case here, but apparently it isn't.

You should apply to a range of schools strong in finance. HOpefully one of the higher ranked schools will bite based on your explanation of your low grades and your otherwise competitive profile the fact that b-schools are not inundated with applicants from Thailand.

Consider the following programs: Yale, NYU, Duke, Cornell, UT, Georgetown, Rochester

Good luck!

Hi,

I am also Thai. Can you please share your experience in order to get very high GMAT score? Where do you take GMAT course?

I took Kaplan course in the U.S. but my score was very poor. Now I am in Thailand. I would like to find my way how I can reach 600 score. If you don't mind, please give me your email address or contact number.

Looking forward to your reply.
