Linda- Thank you so much for your prompt response.


I also had two specific questions:

1. How much of an impact would my poor Masters GPA have on my overall application (considering my UG GPA and GMAT scores are good)?
2. Given that Indian males are such an overrepresented demographic at these schools, is my profile differentiated enough (being a humanities student and other aspects as mentioned in my profile)?


Shrey,

You're welcome.
1. It will be a factor, but you need to tell them you were ill. Given the other excellent academic stats, I think you have reason for optimism. If they like the rest of your app, they have good reason to overlook the grad GPA.
2. That somewhat depends on how you present it, but yes, the material is there to differentiate you from that classic Indian IT guy.

Best,
Linda
