I apologize if I sound like I'm beating a dead horse; I guess as I'm in the middle of studying the GMAT, my nerves are beginning to unravel now that I realize the exam may be harder than I had anticipated. I graduated undergrad with a 2.71 GPA, have 9 years of work experience in a relatively high paying career (200-300k), but have not taken the GMAT yet. I was wondering if anyone would mind sharing their profile/stats who did not get accepted to UCLA's FEMBA program. I feel that the websites have these generic 80% range GPA/GMAT scores, but it would really calm my nerves to hear real life stories to reassure me of possibilities/chances from the normal deviation. I understand that there are always outliers and great success stories, but it would definitely be nice to hear from the normal deviation crowd as well. I do notice that GMAT club forum posts a graph of all the accepted applicants, but I can't seem to find the profiles of who did get dinged. Please feel free to private message me as well and I will be forever in your debt, thank you!

If you have 680 GMAT with 2.7 GPA and has had a successful career so far, I would say go for it.

Generally speaking, the older you are, the less your undergrad GPA matters. Your GMAT would be a better indicator of your MBA success. Sure, a 700+ GMAT would be even better and certainly would look better, but you may just have what it takes. The fact that UCLA FEMBA has increased its enrollment 4 years ago helps you a lot.

I highly encourage you to go the open house and talk to the admission directors directly.

UCLA FEMBA graduate here.
