Your GPA looks like it’s pretty low – this should be explained in an optional essay. And to be competitive at your target programs, you would need a GMAT higher than the schools’ averages to counteract the GPA. On the other hand your certification is impressive, so portray how rigorous this preparation was -- this may slightly mitigate the GPA. If you achieve a strong GMAT, you may be competitive for the listed programs.
One suggestion – in discussing your goals
, clarify why you are making this change and how your experience prepares you for and gives you special insight/skills to bring to these goals. Also show that you are informed about your planned future industry, roles, etc.
