Thinking about enrolling in an MBA program, but you just don’t have the grades…or the GMAT score…or the extracurriculars? Stuck working the floor at Best Buy, dreaming of someday becoming a big shot? Fear not. You don’t need to suffer in some online program with a fancy name (and an address in the Caribbean) or a B-school that just opened in a strip mall (and also has a Caribbean mailing address).

Yes, you too can earn an MBA from a reputable institution. Here, you can get a second (or third or fourth) chance to show what you can do. So if you’re desperate to get accepted into an MBA program – any MBA program – here are the schools with the highest acceptance rates, according to U.S. News and World Report:
