Hello everyone;

My question is about Low gpa. I have a really low one. 2.25 from techincal universiy in Turkey. My major is Economics.I am planning to apply a business school in LA and near places. My first aim is USC. I really wanna go in USC but this gpa is freaking me out. I work in Qatar for 3 years in a really big project with Bechtel, i can have really good rec. letters also. My question is, if i get 700+ gmat can i have a chance to get in USC FT.MBA? The other schools which i think about are, UCLA, UCI and other schools at SoCal.

Your low GPA is going to have the admissions committee doubting that you can keep up in class. I recommend you build an alternate transcript in an English-speaking institution - UCLA Extension, University of London International Programmes, or Penn State World Campus, for example. I recommend taking 2 courses each semester for a year - and earning A's! Then, in the fall of next year, you should have enough evidence for USC that you are academically prepared to do well in its classroom.
