Unfortunately, I don't know much about international business schools, so I can't help much in that regard. However, I do know that a great GMAT score can help compensate for a lower GPA.

As far as the gaps in your work experience, it is all about how you spin that story in your essays and during your interviews. The same can be said for low GPA. "My GPA was low because X, Y, and Z but I did well on the GMAT and I feel that this is more representative of my true potential." You will have to make a strong case, but with time and practice it is possible.

I hope that this was helpful. Good luck.

Give Kudos if my post was helpful!
