I am just wondering what is my chances in top 5 mba schools in Us?My ugpa is very low 2.54 and is this the end of the way for my dreams?I just want real comments because i want to draw a new way otherwise.Big chances or small chances with this profile in top5?
If top 5 is impossible do i have chance in UCLA and tepper business school.i can consider columbia ed because columbia is my top choice..

Your GPA will be a concern (something you'll have to address in the optional essay) but not fatal -- since adcoms tend to look at GMATs far more closely with applicants who didn't graduate from US schools.
