i have a very low GPA. i was a C, C+ student. i never thought id want to go to business school someday

but i have good working experience. i was working fulltime while in a university. i work in one of the biggest salt importers in our country. ive been an assistant manager for almost 6 months already (im from the philippines.) i also have good community participation, and leadership experience from school organizations. i come from a well-respected school.

i have not taken the GMAT exam

i would like to know what schools will accept me internationally (those who do not require a GMAT) and those who do..

1. if i get a mediocre gmat score (500?) which school can i apply to?

thanks.

How much work experience do you have? It sounds like work experience will be the centerpiece of your application. If that's the case, I recommend getting at least 3 or 4 years of experience before applying.

I have at the moment around 32 months of working experience. I plan to apply this October for fall 08'.

Will schools recognize my work experience while im an undergraduate? It really sucks because many say no. Working while in school is hard and Ive worked my ass of it.

Yeah, I agree with them. Unfortunately, adcomms won't put much weight on your college work experience.

You have not mentioned about your undegraduate degree.There is a school for everyone. CLU, NUSD both in California GSO-MI in Germany are some of the schools that don't require GMAT. With GMAT u can apply to Hult, Suffolk both in Boston, Wollongong in Australia. You can find detailed information on shorl . com/lyjehubobidi or get in touch with the schools directly.
