Hi,

I have both a BS and a MS and was wondering if Undergraduate GPA is looked at more or Graduate GPA? Is one weighed more heavily than the other or are they equal?

Thanks,

-Michael

Adcoms don't ignore the MS GPA entirely, but they will look more closely at your BS GPA since it's easier to benchmark you against other candidates (not everyone has an MS and the ones who do an MS aren't necessarily smarter than those who don't do an MS at all).

Michael,
Yes, the undergrad GPA is weighed more heavily because it involved a longer stretch of time and because schools assume that applicants will tend to do well in their chosen subjects (grad school). That said, the more demanding the grad program academically the more a high GPA helps you. That is, someone who earned a mediocre GPA as a liberal arts major at a so-so school can impress the adcoms if s/he earns a high GPA in a technical/quantitative grad program at a rigorous school.

Michael,

In addition to what Alex and Paul said you can qualify for certain programs by having an MS. For example Cornell’s Accelerated MBA Program (http://www.johnson.cornell.edu/Accelerated-MBA.aspx) requires a master’s or doctoral degree.

Best of luck,

That's news to me...are there any other schools that offer an accelerated MBA program?

Just looking at top 20 schools.

Thanks again!

Kellogg offers a one year MBA for applicants with undergraduate business degrees or who have taken certain courses (http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/Pro ... ogram.aspx).

Emory Goizueta which some consider in the offers a similar one year type program in which the completed coursework includes statistics, accounting, and microeconomics (http://goizueta.emory.edu/degree/fullti ... index.html).

Best of luck,

Hi,

B-school adcoms give 30%-35% weight-age to acads, undergrads, GMAT, ECs and work experience. The most important elements in b-school admission are application essays and interviews. They covers 60%-65% in the b-school admission. You may try your chances in b-school(s) by clicking the http://www.apphelp.co.in/Bschool-selection.htm

To get some more clarity on b-school application process and inputs from top b-school grads, kindly attend the webinar conducted by b-school alumnus. For more information and to register your name, click http://www.apphelp.co.in/apphelp-alumni-sessions.php

Let me know in case of further queries. You may PM your details for school selection and profile evaluation in length.

Regards
Erina
