Hey antoniomarc

Thanks for getting in touch. I am impressed with the amount of research you've done into schools. You've put together quite a nice list for yourself, which is great. With your cumulative GPA of 2.55, I'd recommend you do two things:
1. Take HBX Core and do well in it to really prove you can handle the academics.
2. Write an optional essay for each program and explain what happened and why and what you would do differently knowing what you know today.

For your work experience, take a look at our resume guide. https://shop.mbamission.com/products/mb ... sume-guide I say this because I want to make sure you highlight your leadership and management experience. Also, your impact. Less on the admin-y parts like preparing packing lists and creating invoices.

I hope that makes sense!

Krista

First, I would like to say thank you for viewing my profile.

1) Is there any other prestigious programs, other than HBX Core, that are more cost friendly?
2) For impact, could you kindly further explain what sorts of impacts do the admission officers expect?

Hi again antoniomarc

So certainly HBX Core is not cheap, but it does signal your seriousness and help mitigate your GPA. It's really my number one choice for you and I want to be clear about that. For people with more targeted issues -- maybe they failed stats but did okay in other quantitative classes -- I often suggest Math for Management, which is part of the Berkeley Haas extension program. Still not cheap but certainly cheaper than HBX Core.

For the impact on your resume, the answer is...it depends. Take a look at our resume guide if you haven't already because it covers this and provides many examples. But in general, think about times where you have helped increase revenue, decrease costs, decrease time spent on something, increased efficiency, etc.

I hope that helps! All the best for your applications.

Krista
