Poor undergraduate performance - can I rectify this? [#permalink] New post 09 Oct 2008, 11:39
Throughout university, I never excelled at all. I didn't care about being in college, and to be quite frank, I was battling severe depression the whole time I was there (a family member was dying).

I know for a fact that I am a bright individual. I have the drive to succeed. Unfortunately my transcript does not reflect this (I majored in finance). I graduated with a B average from a decent school, but I do not have much work experience (I plan on changing this).

A university local to me offers a diploma program in an area of interest to me (real estate economics). The program consists of 12 courses, but I have credit for 4 of them. All the courses are offered in the school's undergraduate program, under their B.Comm with a specialization in Real Estate. I was wondering if I enrolled in this program and did extremely well, would this strength somewhat negate my poor undergraduate performance? My well, I mean an A average.

I'm really hoping to turn over a new leaf and get myself into a good b-school. Doesn't have to be top-5 or top-10, but something respectable. I'm just worried that I've dug myself into a hole too deep to get out of. I will not accept a GMAT score of less than 720.

Input? Thanks.

a B average? 3.0? That is not a dealbreaker for you. Concentrate on getting a high GMAT and excelling at work. I have no doubt you can get into a great program
