Hi,

GPA might be a problem. Only way to justify is to get a 720+ GMAT score, without that it would be impossible to get in. For now concentrate on your GMAT and your profile. Once you have the score, you can work towards good/strong application essays.

Hope this helps.

How will my bad GPA affect my college selection OR my selection to a good/reputed college for an MBA?

I completed my Engineering in Summer 2010 with 59% on my degree. Now this translates to a 0.9 GPA(when registering for an exam date on mba.com)(if this is wrong then what will be my true GPA?) which means FAIL(?) I have 3 years of working experience, 1 year in Pune,India 1 Year in Bangalore,India and then 1 Year in Michigan,USA all while in the same company and still continuing in the USA. Recently decided to pursue for MBA studies(Executive or Fulltime) for which I have to give the GMAT. Purchased the Manhattan GMAT 10 set guide and started off with the practice test on GMAT Prep Software. I managed to score 520 without any study and deduced that Verbal is my weakest section, especially the RC part. I am confident that I can prepare well in the next few months for the GMAT. My only worry is my bad GPA. That is one thing that cannot be undone now. How will my bad GPA affect my college selection OR my selection to a good/reputed college for an MBA? How difficult are admissions going to be for me,provided I score good on GMAT.
Would appreciate valuable advice,suggestions,feedback.

Thanks.

I think you can build another incremental transcript by going for an online course, especially with an emphasis on business related subjects and try to score well there.

Hi Neha,
Thanks for the reply. I am well aware that i have to get a excellent score in GMAT to be recognized. One more question, i went through this forum " how-to-convert-indian-gpa-percentage-to-us-4-pt-gpa-scale-124249.html " which explains how to convert the indian percentage into GPA. The table rasta shows for Columbia is the same when I am filling out on mba.com when trying to book an exam slot. Should i go ahead and fill in as suggested by mba.com (in which case my GPA becomes 0) ?

Any courses you are aware of or you can direct me to by website?

Dude,

Your GPA actually isn't a 0.9. Chill. The website you have gone to doenst know Indian grading standards. Your GPA I suspect will be a 3.0 ish
