Hi Calvinbabushca - There's some interesting elements to your profile (sorry to hear about that illness! glad to know that you've recovered) but some glitches there too. You might be a good target to the Columbia J-Term with the family business goal. The other consultants you've asked have already said a lot of the stuff that we would say to you. Are there specific questions for us that we can help with?

Thanks much. What would you say are the glitches and how do you think it makes sense to address my below average gpa and gmat at my target schools?

Thanks!

Funny... when we wrote the word "glitches" in that answer above, we KNEW you were gonna ask about it!

Mostly we meant the GMAT and GPA, and the fact that you're headed to the older side of the equation, and also that pitching a family business goal needs to be done carefully.

And before you ask what we mean by all of THAT... :-) we're gonna invite you to check out the EssaySnark blahg, where we've covered advice and suggestions (and plenty of snark) on all of these issues and many more. Lots of the content is available for free.

http://essaysnark.com

If you have specific questions (beyond how to deal with low ______ which is all on the blahg) then please write back with them.
