Any Help appreciated. I am 24 years old, I got a 640 on my GMAT, I had a SUB PAR GPA of 2.5 as a Theater Arts major, due to the various productions that required extensive time commitments.

During college I held two full time summer associate postions for a Fortune 10 company, and went on to work for this employer after graduating with steadily increasing responsibility. If I am able to craft a good application and mitigate my GPA, what are my chances at Keenan Flagler.

K-F is a stretch for you. It isn't out of the question, but between the below average GPA and the below average GMAT, they are going to wonder if you can handle the program.

For more information on applying with low stats, please see "MBA Admissions: Applying with a Low GPA/GMAT"
Good luck!

Greetings Theo23,

A few questions for you:

Did you have any quant coursework in college?
How did you do in those classes?
What was the grade trend in college?
Have you taken any postgrad courses?
Do you hold any professional designations such as CMA, CFA, CFM, CIA, etc.?

Thanks for getting back, I haven't logged on in a while. I took Math in high school through Calc AP, therefore I was waived from most of my math classes due to the BA requirements. I took Quantative reasoning and received a B- largely because of my lack of effort. I am currently enrolled at a university at night taking Statitics and Micro in attempt to show the admissions committee what my quantatative ability is . My goal is to achieve an A in both. I am realistic with my profile. I would just like to get into K-F. My work experience is quantative/marketing/ analysis. Any feedback again appreciated thanks.
Also I would like your thoughts on the overall trend we will see in the coming year with regard to b-school applicants. K-F for instance has trended down in GMAT over the past two years and the selectivity has gone up to 36%. Any thoughts thanks.

The median GMAT for the FT program appears to have declined from 680 to 660 for the class of 2006. The median was 680 for at least the previous 3 years.
