MBA Programs that only care about Last 2 years of Undergrad [#permalink] New post 14 Jan 2008, 10:52
Hi,

I had a fairly dismal undergrad GPA during my first two years; however, I had a 3.5 average in my last two years. I'm wondering besides EDHEC and UT-Austin, are there any other MBA programs that only look at your last two years of undergrad record?

Is there a list or something online for this kind of information?

Thanks!

Thats a very strange request. I'm not aware of any such list but I do know most schools provide an optional essay which could be used to explain any shortcomings like low GPA, gap in work ex. Be creative and try on google you might get lucky.

Travel09,

I'm not aware of any such list, and frankly didn't know any school officially considered only the last two years of undergraduate. The fact that all schools value an upward trend in your grades shows they do place greater emphasis on your later college years. They understand that many students get off on the wrong foot academically, and an upward trend enables them to cut you some slack if your early grades were lousy (but they'll look for a strong GMAT score too). But as far as schools actually ignoring the first two years--that's a new one.

Good luck,
