Hello!

I have a low undergrad GPA (6.4/10). I did my engineering from Delhi University, India. Does a good GMAT score of 750 compensate somewhat for a low GPA? Could you please suggest which schools in Canada and Australia should I apply to? I wish to take admission in one of the top 10 schools in either of these countries.

I have a work experience of 2.5 years in Digital Marketing and Social Media Marketing.

Hi there!

Thanks for sharing your background with us. While nothing will completely wipeout your low GPA, your GMAT does send a strong message. Based on what you've shared, there are some great options for you in both Canada and Australia. One thing to consider first, however, is what you hope to do post MBA. Where do you see yourself? Where do you want your network to be? What role do you wish to pursue during recruiting season?

Some programs are better for certain industries/roles, so it would be good to understand these before we get into school selection specifically. Looking forward to learning more about your goals! If you'd like to chat in-depth about your prospects, we'd love to connect. Sign up for a free consultation below! Best of luck!

Thank you for replying to my query. Yes, I understand the GMAT won't completely wipe out my GPA. I just want the schools to consider my application based on this score and not outright reject it because of my GPA.
To answer your questions, I wish to pursue and MBA in marketing as I am really interested in working in Marketing and Brand Management post MBA. I would love to work in Hospitality and Tourism sectors. My work experience is also in these sectors.

I have also signed up for your free consultation. I will look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks.

Great! Looking forward to connecting. Schools will consider your application as a whole, so no you won't be dinged without them seeing both your GPA and your GMAT.

Great job on your GMAT! Schools look at your GPA and GMAT in tandem so when one is lower the other should be higher to balance it out. So your GPA will not be ignored but your GMAT score certainly helps your case
