Hi Fran94, thanks for reaching out and I will address your profile below.

GMAT - 710 (49Q) This is a great score and will help to lessen the impact of the 2.5 GPA on your application- so feel good about that! The other thing- if you are applying to a US MBA program it may not be as bad as if you had this gpa from a US school as often times US business schools don't have to report international GPAs (hard to have an apples to apples comparison). Any context you can provide to how you ranked to other classmates- if well- could help and so could using the optional essay to not make excuses- but to just give some context around why the grades were lower.

Do i stand a chance in getting into this college or what do you suggest I should enhance?I'm not sure which college you are looking at for MBA- are you looking at US programs- if so I think if you take some ownership but offer that you can do better in optional essays that your GMAT and work strength could still make you a viable candidate. There is a lot that matters in the quality of your application overall- and if you want us to review your profile on a free consult and discuss how we could help- reach out for a free consult here: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/

Thanks for your help.
