Why the low GPA? It’ll be something you’ll need to address with any good MBA program

Going to be tough now that programs are shifting to test optional, leaving you without the stellar GMAT score to balance a low gpa.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, thank you

You could probably compensate for a low GPA with an outstanding GMAT score. Also use the optional essay to justify the gpa is low. No idea about particular schools where gpa is not a big deciding factor, since most of the admission process is a black box from the outside.

GPA is a factor pretty much anywhere. But how much it matters depends on the rest of your application. If you have a great GMAT/GRE score or can tell a good story about your work experience, then it matters less. I had a pretty bad undergrad GOA and still got some great offers for MBA programs because I had a good GMAT (720) and was able to explain what happened with my grades/why it won’t happen again.

Why I love being in industry: I presented a deck and I misspelled "EBITDA" in the exec summary while presenting to the exec team. No one noticed. No one called me out. No one gave me a nasty glance.

After the wave of panic, I remembered that I'm in industry now. I make more money, work less hours, work with great people, I'm happy.

My boyfriend of 3+ yrs and I are applying to bschool together and we’re worried about doing long distance. He wants me to go to Wharton w/him rather than go to HBS. My post mba career goal currently is a PM in a big tech company, but it could change (though likely not going into VC or finance/consulting). Part of me really would still like to go to HBS due to the higher brand name, but I understand that both schools most likely will get me to my short term goals. Should I forgo HBS to be w/him?

Hoping to make a big difference and include CSR/Sust audits and projects beyond for our clients! Any tips?
