Every year, MBA applicants call us to ask whether their profile (GPA, GMAT, work experience) is competitive at the schools they’re targeting. It’s a question we take seriously and address individually, because there are so many factors that impact competitiveness. Deciding where to apply is crucial, especially if your stats are low: if you target the wrong schools, you could end up not getting in – and who wants to delay/deny that b-school dream?
If you’re applying to business school with low stats, you need to have a strong strategy. That means evaluating your profile honestly, thinking about where you’re a competitive applicant, and doing what you can to mitigate your low stats and strengthen your profile.
Our new guide, Applying to Business School With Low Stats: What You Need to Know, gives you a no-nonsense plan for how to do this. If your aspirations are higher than your GMAT/GPA, you can’t afford to miss it.
