It depends on the school If the school cites a 80% range for GPA, a decent GPA falls in that range. If you only have the school's average GPA, then a rough rule of thumb is no less than .3 below the average. This figure is NOT cast in concrete and may vary somewhat depending on the school, your GMAT, and your undergrad institution and course of study.

What if the "Average GPA" is stated as 3.4/4.0, as is for Kellog's.

I think it means that the average GPA is a 3.4 out of a 4.0 grading scale?

Then ideally you want youR GPA to be 3.1 or above, but if you have a 3.1, you would also ideally want to have a GMAT at or above the schools average. Both the GMAT and GPA are considered when evaluating academics.

Good luck!
