What do you think about my work experience? [#permalink] New post 06 Sep 2010, 20:36
Hello all. I am planning on applying to top 10-20 schools for next fall (Darden is my number 1) and wanted to get some input from you guys. I went to UCSD and got a very low undergrad gpa(2.6). I took the gmat once and got a 680. On the other side, I've dropped everything and have been working at a start up software company over the past year and a half (5 employees). I've been very involved and have a good amount of responsibility. We started making successful sales over the past few months and the company is really starting to thrive. In addition, I've been doing economic consulting on the side and have my name published on a few international reports. Do you think my circumstantial work experience will make up for my low gpa and mediocre gmat score? This is all assuming I do very well on the other aspects of the application, ie. essays and letters of rec. Any input would be appreciated!

Yes, you definitely have a shot. If you are that concerned about your GPA, you can try to off set it with a higher GMAT score.

Thanks,
Dawgie

You're within the middle 80% GMAT range for Darden, your GPA is below the middle 80 % range, so you're kinda at the margin interms of the numbers. The rest of your application has to be stellar to get into Darden.
