I was wondering with such a low GPA (I have a valid reason / story) would I still be able to get into a good business school to do my MBA?

I am willing to do an Post grad in finance to prove that I can get a good school. Basically my first two years were trash final two years were really good.

Any tips advice is greatly appreciated!

Thank you.

Hi @beachlifetime-- One can never say never.... in MBA admissions..I have seen it on the school side and with my clients-- if a school LOVES something about you-- and there are lots of areas where you are OVER the bar... they can sometimes overlook a low GPA. Now I will admit 1.667 is low... so you need a good story.... but I have heard some. My first advice is ROCK the GMAT as in the absence of a decent GPA they need to know you can do the work. Seeing a high quant score can really help.
The second thing-- take some business quant courses and DO WELL-- as in get A's. If you already have stat or calculus or accounting or microeconomics then don't retake-- but if you don't have these with good grades-- consider taking at least one.

I am willing to do an Post grad in finance to prove that I can get a good school. Basically my first two years were trash final two years were really good.
Then the other thing is to have great work experience and be doing really well at work with strong rec letters--
while the 1.,677 is probably going to make scholarships nil-- even with a rocked GMAT-- if your GMAT is over 30 points of the schools avg-- they may be willing to accept the low GPA to get the high GMAT... Life is all about trading... so if you can't bring the GPA you better bring something else!! Best wishes-- and if you want specific help in ROCKING your application-- which is very important in this case to overcome GPA-- then please reach out at this link for a free consult: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/

Thank you.
