Hi all,

I am just starting my preparation for GMAT. I had a very basic question on the application process. Do you think a GPA of 3/4 from a top undergrad school would hamper my chances of getting into a good B School.

For sure its not a good thing to have, would have had a better chance with a better GPA. But I would like to know what exactly is the impact of it? Appreciate your feedback!

Regards
Robin

I had less than that and I got into the GSB, denied at HBS, waitlist then deny at Kellogg, admit at Cornell. One guy here had something really pretty low (i think like a 2.6 or so) and got a full scholarship to Darden.

A 3.0 (I assume you mean a 3.0 not a 3.75) isnt great, and a strong GMAT score will be increasingly important for you (the Darden fella had a 780 I believe), but no one can tell you exactly how it impacts your candidacy.

It would be nice if you could run a formula ... GPA * 2 + GMAT - AGE + WE ^ (VERBAL RAW - MATH RAW)*ABS(... but sadly, there is no such formula.
