Hi swetavaswani1111

Thanks for getting in touch. So the great thing about part-time MBA programs is that they may be willing to chat with you before you apply and give you feedback on your candidacy. Get your resume in tip-top shape and then ask Haas if they'd be willing to chat for 10 minutes about your profile. While your Masters program GPA is great, I worry about your lower undergrad GPA and your lower GMAT score too. That being said, it looks like you have some pretty great leadership experience at work, which will help you stand out. There's nothing that makes me say "no." But I do think you should try to chat with Haas and see what they think!

Hope that helps!

Krista
