Hi,
Well, this is quite a story. I am originally from India, but pursued my high school in the UK. I then went on to start my freshman year at DePaul University Chicago (decent college in the Chicago area), and transferred to a top tier public ivy in my 2nd year. I have consistently been a B+/A- student, however, because of some factors such as not getting used to the public school environment quickly enough, I got rejected from their business school (3.1 GPA in my first semester). As a result, I lost all my motivation and graduated with a 2.4 in Legal studies and Economics.

I went back to India and worked in my family business for two years (500 + employees, mid scale manufacturing firm in the automobile industry). I then came back to DePaul for the Masters of Science in Finance degree and will graduate next quarter (I currently have straight A's - 4.0 GPA). Additionally I have cleared my CFA Level I, and I also retook my GMAT last month and scored a 730 (3rd attempt).

goes without saying, I have put in everything in my power in order to undo what happened in my UG. I want to pursue an MBA in finance and am looking into Purdue, UIUC, Mich State, Kelley, Penn State & Minnesota. My top choices are UIUC and Kelley. Do I have the slightest shot at them? Will they be ready to blink at my UG GPA, or will they even take into account my MSF GPA and other factors that I have built up over the past 3 years? In other words, have i lost the game even before the intangibles come into play?

My post MBA goal is to break into consulting.

I have also done a lot of Extra curricular activities, as well as many on campus jobs relating to accounting/finance in my UG and PG. Also, I have completed an Internship at a small brokerage firm in Chicago as well.

Your help is much appreciated, and I look forward to your evaluation. Thanks.

PS: had a 3.9 freshman year GPA before transferring.

Yes. You do have a competitive profile for these programs. You may also want to consider Rochester Simon or UNC.

Best,
