Hello again with a similar topic but somehow different case,

I was graduated from a Turkish university which has a ranking between 401-500 in Times. My undergrad department was electronics engineering and graduation GPA is 2.40 :( Thus, I want to apply a MBA program that does not require any work experience (even I have some little work experience from internships). Also, I am not looking for top schools, mid low-ranked schools are ok for me.
For example, a school which is between 801-1000 or below 1000th ranking in Times Higher Education list will accept me? Or which ranking range should I look for? Because the school that I was graduated is good and my references will be strong either.
One last thing, I am going to take GMAT in 10 days and I was expecting a score around 650. So what are your advices for me especially the talented people please help me what should I do ? I really really want to go to MBA in US whatever the school is :)

Thanks for any advice/answer/comment :)

I'm not sure that now is the best time for you to pursue and MBA. Much of the value of the degree is being able to relate it to the job and the difficulties of management, and you don't have much exposure there. I do not think there is anything to gain by attending a low ranked MBA program without experience. If it was Harvard, sure, the name alone may open doors, but a low ranked school is not going to offer much in the way of opportunities unless you have some incredible networking skills.

My .02 as a non professional, take the GMAT in the next few days since you are already signed up, see how you do and reconsider your plan. I think the best option is to get some meaningful work experience, and make an impact before applying in a few years. Even with a 2.4, getting into a good school (top150 or so worldwide) is doable, and the longer you are out of undergrad, the less important the GPA becomes.

Well a profile is looked at holistically, so a weakness, and even a major weakness such as a very low GPA can be balanced off by other things, like a fantastic GMAT, or strong work experience, or great community service.

I would say first of all, concentrate on your test, see what score you get and then armed with score try and figure out what MBA you can and should apply for.

Best,
