Southern Cal. middle of the road MBA programs [#permalink] New post 11 Apr 2008, 14:37
I need to find some schools in Southern Cal. (Los Angeles or thereabouts) for 160 gmat/3.75 gpa. Any recommendations?

I don't know anything about business schools/gmat, and so obviously this application is not for me, but I've been tasked with doing it if I am to take a job in LA, so I'd really appreciate the collective wisdom of this board. Thank you all.

First off, 160 is not a possible score. You get 200 just for sitting down. To answer your question: Pepperdine and UC Irvine have fairly lax admission (you will still need to score at least a 580-600 on the GMAT to get in). If you score in the mid-600s and have good work experience/essays, perhaps try USC as well.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I guess I must have been off---shows how much I know about this. I believe her score is a 560. So, it sounds chancy, or even unlikely with Pepperdine and UC Irvine.

Breaking 600 would be advisable, but she may still have a shot at these programs if she has a high GPA and good work experience.

I think San Diego State and UCSD also have programs.
