Does a GPA from 10 years ago even matter anymore? I’d hope that your work experience would greatly outshine that. Just avoid putting it down unless it’s absolutely mandatory

No considering top 10 EMBA programs in the US

You’ll need to support the low GPA with a higher GMAT + great recs.

No it doesn’t matter. Especially for EMBA. The current title, experience and company you are with matters the most. The ask for undergrad is just a check list item.

EMBA doesn’t care about anything, they just want your $$$$. Apply to the top schools and watch that you get accepted to all of them. EMBA and PT-MBA programs are the money makers. Just expect to pay full sticker price.

Live in the bay area and have a net worth of ~600K. This does include our house and 401K's.

Anyone in a similar situation and addressing the issue of potentially moving to somewhere more affordable like Texas?
