Have a 3.0 gpa (did bad in engineering before switching to finance). Would getting a grad cert/class from Georgetown Help with top mba admission or should I just focus on experience and gmat?

A lot of certs. are a joke. Maybe look into skills based volunteering to round out your profile and add relevant business experience. Your firm sponsors Compass ProBono - the projects can be fun and you can build a solid network as well.

Experience and GMAT yes. I think they take your undergrad GPA without add-ons. Could be wrong on that one

Ah got it. Sounds like experience and gmat. Pwc1, yea did some compass probono and it was fun and extremely fulfilling. Then i guess I’ll use my time for gmat prep, then do some other stuff to add onto experience
