Hi

Need Help!

I have gone through a lot of articles regarding how a low gpa hampers your chances of getting into a top B school, but i still haven't found what i am looking for. As far as i know, the reason top b schools want you to have a good gpa is that they basically want to know whether the candidate has a quantitative mind. So if a student doesn't have that, the schools encourage students to take a few courses that will be able to demonstrate their quantitative ability. i am not saying the if you don't know how to handle math, you won't be able to do well in your MBA. All i am saying is that math seems to be one of the major pieces of the academic perspective of an MBA.

I am a math graduate ( Bachelor of Science in Mathematics) from Delhi University, which is a tier 1 university as per my knowledge. Seems pretty heavy right? hehe :D . The only problem is that my overall gpa is 2.3 on a scale of 4. Though my final year gpa is an 3.20 on a scale of 4, top 5, if not top 3, in my batch. I have done really well in subjects such as Differential Calculus and mathematical modelling, Probability and statistics, mathematical analysis etc etc. I clearly am pretty okay/confident when it comes to math. i haven't given my gmat yet, but will try my level best to cross the 730 mark. I do understand the fact that both the gmat and the gpa are not the only pieces of the puzzle, but they do seem important as they not only create a certain perception, but also help the adcoms in understanding how the candidate will handle the academic rigour. Rest depends on the essays and obviously the work ex.

So what sort of an impact a math degree with a low overall gpa, but a good final year gpa, from a tier 1 university will have? What are the consequences that i am looking at?

i am looking at LBS , INSEAD , Oxford, IESE , Cambridge , ISB
