My application journey so far has been anything but smooth. With 3 dings so far I am already formulating a reapplication plan though I still have to hear from my R2 schools. But just wanted to know if a low gpa can be balanced by a high GMAT score. My undergrad GPA is 3.8 out of 5 so it works out to approximately 3.1 on a four point scale. I have As in quantitative subjects such as Maths and Accounting and have a A+ in my final year dissertation. My gmat score is 770. Apart from my Indian IT background, I am wondering if my average GPA is a big stumbling block.

I present to you the knowledge of pelihu:

123-p422564?t=58747#p422564

These questions come up quite often, so we have begun compiling similar questions in these vaults to help out the new members. The vault will slowly fill up (it's a work in progress), so please be patient with us.

kryzak, I think we could always let members ask any questions they like -- It is useful to have different perspectives.

Praet, I agree that members should be allowed to ask questions, as it does spur discussions that often lead to gems of information. With that said, the answers for his questions are pretty much answered multiple times in the links that I provided in the vault and he is *encouraged* to ask more questions (by responding to certain threads in those vaults) if the original discussions do not answer his question completely.

I would also suggest that he start a new topic asking a more specific question that was not answered by the previous links if he still needs help, and I'm sure everyone on this forum will be eager to help out. Wouldn't you agree?
