Hi Marco,

Sorry but we specialize specifically in MBA admissions, which is generally pretty different from Masters admissions. I don't want to give you advice that doesn't apply to your program. Perhaps there are forums that specifically focus on Masters in Accounting where you could get a more appropriate assessment. For what it's worth, for business school, you'd need to overcome your low GPA with a very strong GMAT score and some supplementary courses. You would also want to write an optional statement explaining the GPA.

Good luck,
Mili
