Your MBA goal makes sense-- great work experience leading up to this-- if you have time-- which sounds like you don't-- even a bit of a bump in score could help a lot with the scholarship part of this--especially given the 2.6 GPA. I just don't see that GPA as being helpful on the scholarship front unless you can over-deliver on your GMAT. You might also consider a school in US-- https://wpcarey.asu.edu/mba-programs/fu ... holarships that offers some great scholarships.

Your thoughts on school selection looks fine-- but I don't see much on the scholarship front from many of these unless your stats improve-- and GMAT is really the only one you can move significantly since school is done. Hope this helps!

Thank you so much for your feedback, I'm surprised that you didn't say my school choices were ambitious (though I know I am fairly below their average), I will definitely try to shoot for the scholarships and I appreciate your effort.
