Hey I’m a current International but did my undergrad in the United States and I wanted to ask If there was any point applying for the masters if you have a 2 point GPA but high 600s to low 700s on the GMAT? What can you do to make it better if you are trying to get into a top MBA program, Masters in Accounting to be precise.

Hi there! It can be tough with a GPA at that level, as it's an important indicator of your academic performance in the masters program. But the admissions process is holistic and GPA is just one stat on your application. So don't let it stop you from applying. 3 things you can do: 1) get a high GMAT (like 30 points above your target school's median); 2) take supplemental courses before you apply and get As in them, ideally quantitative courses or retaking courses you did particularly poorly in (you can take these online through programs like UCLA Extension); 3) be smart about your school selection, as very top programs are going to be really challenging with a low GPA.

Hope this helps, and good luck!
