Yet another low GPA concern [#permalink]
04 Dec 2005, 15:27
Hi, I'm applying to a few MBA programs in the second round (yes, I know it's late in the game) and was curious what the assessment would be of my chances based on a quick first glance:
GMAT: 750 (50Q/41V, 6.0 AWA)
Undergrad GPA: 3.07
I graduated from the top BBA program in the country, but for reasons I can only attribute to immaturity, my undergraduate GPA is weak. This is my biggest source of insecurity in my applications, so I'm curious if my GMAT score is strong enough to alleviate concerns over those grades, especially since I graduated over 7 years ago.
I have over 6 years of work experience. The first two were with separate firms as an assistant in the Sales and Trading area of investment banks. I left each job due to a merger. For the past four years I have worked at a rapidly growing and recently very visible technology company in the financial industry. I've been promoted and taken on increasing responsibility during that time. Also, my area of focus is on the financial markets side of things, rather than IT (for the sake of anonymity, I don't want to go into much more detail).
The schools I'm looking at are Chicago, Kellogg, Columbia, Michigan, NYU, and UNC.
