High GMAT (730), Mediocre GPA in Chemical Engineering  [#permalink]

Hello folks,

I majored in chemical engineering at a top 15 university. The courses were very tough, and I achieved a (relatively mediocre) GPA of 2.98. I've had almost 7 years of solid, first-rate work experience in the private engineering sector. I also scored a 730 on my GMAT (in 2016).

I'm applying to a variety of top 20 business schools: UCLA, Georgetown, Northwestern, Chicago, etc. Should I be concerned that my poor GPA will nix my chances? Also, many top schools have AVERAGE GMAT scores close to, or even above, a 730. Is a 730 not an impressive score for such schools?

Hey RSGmoney

Welcome to GMATClub :)

Well, answers to your questions depends on alot many factors such as whether you are from over or under represented demographic area, what all apart from GMAT things you have.

Moreover, your GPA is actually low but if you present your GPA with a "silver lining", it can be in your favor.

P.S: I have moved your post to the right forum where admission consultants can chime in.

I would prefer you to add complete details so that it could be easier for admission teams to profile you fair analysis.

Hi RSGmoney,

First off, with a 730 you have an outstanding score (it's above the 90th percentile overall), so you should certainly apply to any Business Schools that interest you. You're ultimately asking Admissions questions though, so you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile and plans. There's a Forum full of them here:
