Advice on profile for PT MBA Program.

Post Tue Jan 10, 2017 4:20 pm
Hi all - Just looking for some advice since i am planning on applying this summer to a few part time MBA programs. Mainly i am curious about how my chances might be applying with a low GPA and low GMAT.

Stats
- Undergrad degree from University of Poona, India in Electrical Engineering
- GPA - 2.9
- Masters degree from California State University, Sacramento in Electrical Engineering
- Masters GPA -3.2
- GMAT 640 (Q-49, V-28)
- Indian 31 year old male
- Interned at a LSI Logic, Allentown, Pennsylvania
- Currently working as senior physical design engineer at Intel COrporation, Chandler, Arizona
- Total Full-time work experience at Matriculation - 6.3 years
- Volunteer work at Intel Corporation - help middle school kids with Mathematics

I am looking to apply to following schools for PART TIME MBA programs

1. Kellogs NW
2. Booth chicago
3. UC Berkley
4. UCLA
5. Ross
6. Stern

Thanks.

Gaurav,

I would agree on the point of GPA/GMAT not being deal breakers. This is coming from quite a few folks we have worked with in the past in some of the above schools. Read here, here and here.

Your years of experience could be on the lower end and that is the aspect you need to explain and justify. Beyond that, things should be pretty good.

Cheers,

In most cases for part-time and executive MBA programs, the work experience becomes more important than the GMAT and gpa. So this will help your case. I suspect you may have the best results with Stern and UCLA. Make sure you getting the names of the schools right in the application process- Kellogg and UC Berkeley...
Best wishes to you!

Thanks.
