­Hello everybody, i am currently a senior student studying economis and data science at a prestigious european university, I plan on applying to a graduate masters in business analytics programs fall 2024 in the following universities:
-UT Austin Mccombs
- UCLA
- Duke Fuqua
-Uoft Rotman
- UBC Sauder
- USC Marshall

My stats are: Firstly my Gmat is 720. The weak side of my application is my  GPA which is 3.1. However I have passed all courses related to the masters such as Advanced Statistical Methods, Machine Learning, Optimization, Big data and databases with an A* so maybe I can explain it on the supplementary essay. I interned for 4 months at a Bank as a Business Analyst. I will start working at a Big 4 audit firm as a tech consultant this June which will add another 4-6 months of experience until my application. I currently do not have a recommendation and wanted to ask you what I should prioritize in a recommendation to increase my chances. Could you please rate my chances and possibly give me tips?

Hi dscience,

Your overall profile seems fine. However, Adcoms is considering admitting a mixed batch of cohorts to ensure the quality is not compromised. Your lower GPA doesn't need an explanation unless it's an important part of your life and thus your applications. You also have a decent GMAT score. You can think of taking the GMAT FE to be confident of your profile.
