I'm currently in law school, and am interested in applying for a part-time program in the future. I was wondering, how heavily schools weigh graduate GPA/Rank, in there decisions. Are there any part-time MBA students in Chicago willing to share their sentiments about their schools/programs?

Thanks

Although some commentators have stressed grades, I would place more stress on demonstrating why you are seeking an MBA at this point. A GPA of about 2.8 from (presumably) Cornell or Penn is not particularly impressive but not exactly shameful either. Regardless, admissions officers usually know not to take law school GPA at face value since the grading systems used by law schools are generally quite harsh. Further, in many ways law school is sui generis and not particularly indicative of how one would perform in a more quantitative program. Thus, I would expect far more scrutiny of your undergrad record.

Have you taken any coursework at your institution's business school?

The schools will consider your grad GPA and rank along with all the other factors that you know so well: GPA, GMAT, etc. Hopefully all come together to present an accomplished applicant.

Good luck!
