How will my bad GPA affect my college selection OR my selection to a good/reputed college for an MBA?
I completed my Engineering in Summer 2010 with 59% on my degree. Now this translates to a 0.9 GPA(when registering for an exam date on mba.com)(if this is wrong then what will be my true GPA?) which means FAIL(?) I have 3 years of working experience, 1 year in Pune,India 1 Year in Bangalore,India and then 1 Year in Michigan,USA all while in the same company and still continuing in the USA. Recently decided to pursue for MBA studies(Executive or Fulltime) for which I have to give the GMAT. Purchased the Manhattan GMAT
10 set guide and started off with the practice test on GMAT Prep Software. I managed to score 520 without any study and deduced that Verbal is my weakest section, especially the RC part. I am confident that I can prepare well in the next few months for the GMAT. My only worry is my bad GPA. That is one thing that cannot be undone now. How will my bad GPA affect my college selection OR my selection to a good/reputed college for an MBA? How difficult are admissions going to be for me,provided I score good on GMAT.
Would appreciate valuable advice,suggestions,feedback.
