AswinG,

Yes, it’s better to apply with GRE. Although most schools accept GRE score these days, check the school’s website, just to be sure.

Your GPA is on the lower side, though your standing in the class matters too. If you finished, say, in top one-third, your GPA will look better. And if you faced any special circumstances (reason for low GPA), then you must mention them.

You’ve a chance at these schools. And the way to strengthen that is to write great essays and get solid recommendations. B-schools want to see proof of managerial abilities (leadership, interpersonal skills, teamwork, and so on) and career progression (promotions and/ or increase in responsibilities) in your profile. Dig them out. And personalize your application.

AswinG,

Thank you for the detailed post. As it was mentioned above, your standing in school relative to classmates will be important. Aside from that, with a GRE (those schools all accept it) of 325 and marketing at a software company, you have a very good profile for those schools.

What have you done outside of work? I would be interested to learn about your extracurricular activities. If you tie a nice story together, you should see success.

Reach out if you want more specific help with your applications. Good luck!

Best,
Scott
