I'm aiming to apply to a few top business schools for marketing but here's a run down of my grades from some quantitative classes from undergrad. Obviously not so hot.... My cumulative is a 3.47 from an Ivy League undergrad. What do you think my chances are at somewhere like Fuqua or Columbia?

Financial Accounting: C
Managerial Accounting: B-
Econ: C+
Finance: B
Statistics: A
Real Estate Finance: A

Has anyone had to address these concerns during interviews? What's the best way to approach?

Thanks

The best way is for you to do very well on the math section of the GMAT and if possible, build up an alternative transcript with some math courses, and ace them.

Crack the GMAT, especially the quant section and rock the rest of the application. Just one factor never makes or breaks an application so focus on what you can control now. Also, if you had some extenuating factors (working while studying, medical condition, etc), do mention about it in the application.
