    Hi Mr. CPA to MBA,
    This is Debbie Choy, Senior Consultant at mbaMission. I like that you have a solid professional track record and demonstrated leadership with a charity. What a compelling personal story of helping your family and community rebuild! I think the Admissions Committee (AdCom) will be very interested in hearing this story of resilience, grit, and leadership within your community – consider including it in your essays where appropriate. I do think your GPA could be a concern, although alleviated somewhat by your passing the CPA. Is your MA GPA higher?

You will want to include, in an optional essay, why you left the tech company – to give insight to admissions. Congrats on raising funds through your board seat on the …

    Texas A&M is a decent school, but the low GPA from this school coupled with no GMAT score indicates that your target schools are a long shot. It looks like you're banking on being a minority to stretch into a school you haven't earned your way into.
