Your 3.1 will perplex the adcom. It certainly won't increase their confidence in you. It begs explanation and you should provide it, probably in optional essays.

For more information, please see "Optional Essays."

GPA Question [#permalink] New post 17 Jul 2004, 20:47
Another important question is what was the field of study for the MS?
Is performance in that field germane to performance in an MBA program?
Where were the BS and MS obtained?

Best,

Hjort
