Hi Stacy,

Thanks in advance for your insight.

GMAT: 710 (V50 Q35)
Work Experience: 3yr part time, 4yr full time in Finance (current: FX Trader) & Entrepreneurship on the side (1 success and 1 failure, currently sit on BOD @ e-procurement startup)
Target: Columbia, NYU, Booth
Post MBA goal: Private Equity

This is where it gets interesting.
School: University of Toronto
Program: Honors, Economics Specialist
My GPA is 2.20 - 2.30 range, however, the class average was 2.35.

I did some research and found out that averages are 3.30 - 3.50 ivy league schools.

I understand that my GPA well below par, but given the 'well below par' class average, how does this translate to adcom' view?

Hi reddevil00,

Thanks for posting. Your GPA is something you will need to address on your application. I recommend you read this case study of how a candidate with a sub 3.0 GPA was accepted into a top MBA program: http://www.stacyblackman.com/comprehens ... ies/case5/

If you'd like, we also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
