Now that that's over (sorry for the length), here is what I need help with:
1. Can I make up for my overall GPA?
2. What should I aim for in my GMAT?
3. Should I take a calculus/statistics course to show my proficiency?
4. What schools should I look into based on my profile? Is Kellogg a pipe dream? Is Kelly achievable? Are there any under-the-radar Marketing programs which are known and respected in the industry?
Thank you in advance for taking the time to review this.
Thanks for the long and very detailed post.
It's helpful to figure out where you stand and what you can do with it. Let's jump straight into your questions.
1. Yes and No. Meaning you CAN minimize it's effect, and boost your profile by a) telling them your story which you wrote above b) showing maturation and success in other areas (especially the GMAT). your 2.75 will still be a 2.75, but you will need to prove them you can succeed by showing them other things
2. Hmmmmm. As high as you can get
3. If you have low grades in math/stat/calc classes, then YES! This can help.
4. Hard to say at this point without a GMAT. I would say the only ones that no matter what you do will remain very hard are H/S/W. Everything else is possible, depending upon your work success, GMAT, quality of essays, etc.
Sooo, good luck on your way forward, and I would suggest getting back to us with your GMAT (and of course if you got any more questions)
Hope this helps,
