Mr. Exit, Low GPA

About Me:

Born in Guam, a small island in the Pacific, I grew up completely unaware of and indifferent to corporate and business pathways. Through college, I worked 20+ hours weekly and double majored. I also was a member of the APAC club, the university rugby team, and a fraternity. Until beginning this process I had no idea how much collegiate GPA mattered.
I want an MBA because I experienced specific pain points in scaling my software company; I think a top-tier MBA will help. I know I want to start another company, but I don’t have a specific idea or product for my next start-up. Would such lack of specificity hurt my entrance chances?

Post MBA Goal:

I’d like to focus on entrepreneurship during the MBA and join a technology startup in a Product Director/Product Manager role post-MBA. This would feed into my long-term goal of starting another software company and eventually entering the VC space.
