I slacked off for a long time, and as a result, my GPA in college is low. I'm an Accounting undergrad at the University of Georgia with a GPA of like 2.6. I'll be graduating this upcoming semester. I basically have the other upper division level accounting classes left. I know my chances of getting into a good Master's program are low. By the end of this summer though I'll have experienced internships in two decent companies(I did another internship two summers ago). I plan on taking the GMAT in August as well, and based on my SAT score, and general skills. Like I took a practice test only once and got a 690. Based on my GPA, undergrad college, work experience, and supposed GMAT score, what should I work on for the next few months. I plan on working hard my final semester and getting good grades in my remaining accounting classes and therefore bringing up my accounting GPA. The only master's programs I've found I have a shot getting into are Georgia State and a college called East Carolina University. Any other ones that are easy to get into, anyone know? I'm kind of lost and really worried to be honest.

You're in the right track about your plan. Your GPA is already fixed. There's not much you can do about, other than doing best on your final semester GPA. Ace that GMAT all the way up to 720~730 level. Some top schools will want to take you so that they can increase the GMAT score, despite your low GPA, especially if your accounting GPA is above 3.2. Good luck!

I'm curious to know what program you ended up joining.
