I’m a 28-year-old male from Chile. I studied Business Administration at PUC, Chile’s top business school. I have over 4 years of experience in management and strategy consulting at Integration Consulting. I’ve delivered over 15 projects all over Latin America, in countries like Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, Brazil, and Guatemala.
I believe that my application will overall be excellent (cv, experience, leadership, recommendations, essays, GMAT, etc.). However, I’m aware that my GPA will be the main concern. I think that everything else might at least partially offset this aspect. Do you think that I can do anything else to strengthen my case? Should I adjust my universities?
