Hi Team,

What are my chances with:
750 GMAT
2.51 GPA (BS. Industrial Engineering, Georgia Tech)
2yrs work experience as BA at McKinsey
Confident in my essays and recommendations

Looking at:
HBS
Stanford
MIT Sloan
Booth

Undergrad GPA is extremely low. There was an upwards trend through out the 4 years (went from 1.6 to 3.7), and was initially low as I working part-time while attending classes

What can I best do to offset my low GPA allowing the reviewers to focus on what matters: story/work experience?

BTW, even though GPA is more flexible than say, GMAT, and even though GT is a tough engineering school without grade inflation, you should still address why you had a lower GPA in the optional essay, or in HBS case, just a one sentence acknowledgement that you should/could have done better might go a long way.
