Do I have a chance to get MBA? [#permalink] New post 09 Dec 2010, 14:22
I like to get MBA degree and here is my situation:

a) Earned my bachelor degree in IT filed from San Jose State University

b) My GPA is lower than 3.0

c) I have already taken GMAT three times, two years ago. In all of them, I got less than 450.

d) I have part-time work related to IT right now

e) San Jose State University told me that because my GPA is less than 3.0, then I can not get to MBA program even if I get high GMAT score.

Now, I would like know, what is my chance to get in to ANY MBA program if I re-take GMAT one more time and try to get above 600? Please let me know, what should I do?

Thank you, Kevin

I have a different view.
I put myself in your shoes and if I am really interested in pursuing an MBA, I will do a SWOT analysis.

Its is simple.
1.I will list down my strengths and weaknesses.

2.I will evaluate myself with respect to -
Where I am now and Where I want to see myself 5 and 10 years from now.
Can I do better in my Job and improve my profile first with some achievement. If yes How ?
Is MBA really something worth of ? If it is so then why ? Is it the money, Is it the kind of work that I will be doing Post MBA etc that attracts me to do an MBA.

Most importantly, If I do an MBA now and If I CAN do an MBA, an executive MBA later, will I be able to reach the desired goal ?

3. Also, have I planned for doing an MBA beforehand. Meaning during your under graduate course work or when I started working. If No, then I need to plan now atleast.

4. Network, use them. I am sure I have a couple of good friends,a good family and may be a current student/alumni. After I have done this self analysis of mine, I will Go to them or even come to GMAT CLUB and then set a target.

I am sure this analysis will have helped me getting a direction atleast.

Hey,that is just me. But I know Kevin is smart, isn't he ? :)

Best of Luck and Merry Christmas Beforehand.
