Your limited full-time work experience and your low cumulative GPA are definitely hurdles to overcome in the application process. Be sure to use the optional essay to discuss the reasons for your low GPA and if possible, highlight any lessons learned from the experience. If you are certain that you want to apply for an MBA now, make sure you can articulate why now is the appropriate time in your career and how an MBA will help you to achieve your professional goals. You should be able to discuss how each programs' strengths align with your goals. Best of luck!
