My question is about Low gpa. I have a really low one. 2.25
from techincal universiy in Turkey. My major is Economics.I am planning to apply a business school in LA and near places. My first aim is USC. I really wanna go in USC but this gpa is freaking me out. I work in Qatar for 3 years in a really big project with Bechtel, i can have really good rec. letters also. My question is, if i get 700+ gmat can i have a chance to get in USC FT.MBA? The other schools which i think about are, UCLA, UCI and other schools at SoCal.
Thanks in advance...
Your low GPA is going to have the admissions committee doubting that you can keep up in class. I recommend you build an alternate transcript in an English-speaking institution - UCLA Extension, University of London International Programmes, or Penn State World Campus, for example. I recommend taking 2 courses each semester for a year - and earning A's! Then, in the fall of next year, you should have enough evidence for USC that you are academically prepared to do well in its classroom.
