Hello all,

Currently, I am working in the automotive industry. I have 3 years of experience and I got dual master degrees. Here is my profile,

Bachelors (Mechanical) GPA - 6/10 ( Many D grades, few C grades and 2 A grades)
Masters (Physics) GPA - 6/10 (got E grade in 6 courses, D in 6 courses)
That is an integrated degree program. There are no personal/family/health reasons for my poor grades, I was just lazy and didn't attend classes and exams.

After graduation, I came to the US and finished my masters in mechanical engineering
Master (Mechanical) GPA - 3.6/4 (All A's and B's)

I got 323 in my GRE (gave GRE in 2012) and I am confident that I can get similar or better score if I write GRE again.

With such low bachelors GPA and with so many E and D grades, will any good university even look at my application? Will my masters GPA help my application? I want to get into top-tier universities, is it achievable? My company will pay for my MBA fee if I can get into Ross school of business.

Is this a fool's dream or is there any scope for me?

Hi there,
What was your GRE breakdown? Likely you're still scoring a bit low for top tier schools such as Ross and similar. A retake can always help and I do encourage, schools take the highest score! It's common to sit the test multiple times. And the lower your past grades, the more important a really stand-out test score can be. The Masters (in US) grades will help a certain amount. You're still going to be safer looking at options outside the top 15/20 or so (roughly), but see what you can achieve with your test score first and come back and let us know.

Hi there--
Quick note feel free to start a new post next time for clarity vs chiming in on another person's profile eval request, thanks! ;)

We could use a lot more info here... do you have work experience?? The average incoming student at reputable MBA programs has 5 years of full-time post-university work experience... and management of people or projects is a plus. Test scores are also important.... in terms of profile development... work hard for multiple years, making an impact in what you do and building relationships and leadership skills. Get involved in the community. Take a prep course and nail your exam. (Taking it a few times is common as needed). Research schools and your post-MBA career plans. Keep in touch and good luck!

So the Q looks good but the verbal is rough as you know. If you only took it once I'd encourage you to consider another shot in case it helps you get closer to a shot at Ross. Currently I feel Ross would be a challenge for you, and schools with slightly higher acceptance rates and lower average test scores would be more realistic. Keep us posted if we can help, or consider a tutor or test prep course if you have not yet.
