Looking for respectable Masters of Accounting programs...
-UNC-Chapel Hill Economics Major, 2010
-Worked 3 jobs while in college
-After graduation, spent 2 years in a Management Trainee program for a service company in South Florida
-Program used to mold trainees to serve General Manager or Director type functions within 6 years
-Facility's accounting/office manager
-Promoted after two years to Special Projects Manager
Considering: UNC-CH, UGA, George Washington University, American University, University of Miami(FL), and Florida International University
What are my chances of admission with such a low GPA?
If you do well on the GMAT/GRE, given your 3 jobs in college, your work experience, since then, and your URM status, I think you would have a shot at these programs. FIU says it has a 3.0 minimum, but if you do well on the GMAT it may make an exception. I didn't see a minimum at UNC or GWU and I didn't check the others. I don't think your undergrad GPA has to prevent you from earning a masters in accounting. You will, however, need to do well on the GMAT or GRE.
