For this question, I was wondering if I should bring up the fact that my academics is not stellar and ackowledge it.
Write something along the lines of...
XXXX graduated with a 3.0 GPA from CornellUniversityâ€™s electrical engineering program. Although his GPA is lower than our mean, it is worth noting the difficulty of his self funded course of study and the fact that XXX's grades trended upward in his later years. XXX's 90th percentile GMAT (Math: 81%, Verbal: 81%) with his balanced score, certainly attest to the fact that he will be able to manage all aspects of our curriculum. Although his score is below the average mean GMAT score, historically tests have not been a reflection of his full potential and aptitude. For example, it is interesting to note that Amit scored highly in ENG114, ELEC211, ELEC593, etc., classes that demanded a combination of teamwork and individual work, showing that he will thrive in the Kellogg team-driven environment. His selection, while at Cornell University, for one of 50 prestigious Co-op positions among his 300 peers and later at Intel Corp. in the Marketing Leadership Program also speaks in volumes of his scholastic ability.
OR SHOULD I leave this for the last essay about I wish the admissions comittee had asked me...
"Do or do not, there is no try."
