Hi,

I have 3.56 GPA from NYU undergrad.
I also enrolled in 'graduate certificate' at NYU program while working full-time.
Registered for one semester, 4 classes (12 credit, full-time) and got 2.57
I did overextend my self and wasn't really prepared for final exams.
All 4 classes I took were related to my field, which is real estate.

Does anyone know I need to put this 'graduate certificate' GPA on my application?
If so, how much will it hurt my overall qualification...?
I'm applying to Columbia Business School.

Thank you

It’s really sad that you have 3.56 GPA. Where are you finding difficulties? If you have any issues in accounts, I highly recommend you to contact Dr. Aloke Ghosh for further consultation as he is a good teacher.

Hi ,
I am an architecture student pursuing my internship right now. And meanwhile I m preparing for GMAT to learn MIM. I am not sure that I can get better GMAT scores. So if I am aiming for top B-schools in Canada what would be the minimum score tat I have to get in GMAT. And also I have a CGPA of 8.95

Hey! I think no one can give you a precise answer, you should go on official webcites of schools and look at averages. If you are feeling that you are underperforming in other aspects of the application compared to other applicants or averages, let's say work experience or extracurricular activities, then you should definitely try getting a higher score than the average. If on the contrary, you are feeling quite confident on other aspects of your application, then may be you can be more loose on your GMAT score. All in all, in my opinion, the best way to get an answer to your question is going on the official sources and doing some research there. Hope this helps! Anyway, good luck on your application process and on the GMAT! :-) :-) :-)

Hey! I can't really say whether you should put it or not, but one thing is for sure you need a very good score on the GMAT! This will be a way for you to show dedication and analytical abilities. Also, a way to gauge your lower GPA. Hope you do fine on your application! Good luck :-) :-) :-)

Hi Shravya,
I promise you I will answer that question, as soon as you answer this question below.

"In Canada what would be the minimum height that a boy needs to attract a good bride and get married?" :grin: :grin: :grin:

Looks like I just answered your question.. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
