Is all LOST? Poor grades in quantitative undergrad classes [#permalink] New post 15 Jun 2011, 15:21
Hi Stacy -

I'm aiming to apply to a few top business schools for marketing but here's a run down of my grades from some quantitative classes from undergrad. Obviously not so hot.... My cumulative is a 3.47 from an Ivy League undergrad. What do you think my chances are at somewhere like Fuqua or Columbia?

Financial Accounting: C
Managerial Accounting: B-
Econ: C+
Finance: B
Statistics: A
Real Estate Finance: A

Thanks

Hi kayo12,

It is not a lost cause. I do not have enough information from you to discuss Fuqua and Columbia (as I don't know your GMAT score, work experience, extracurricular activities, etc.), but your 3.47 GPA will not destroy your application. If you are very concerned, here is a case study that discusses how one candidate addressed his GPA in his essays and was accepted into Columbia and Chicago Booth.

Hope this was of help.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
