    Hi Mr. Low GPA to Stanford,
    Thanks for posting your profile. This is Debbie Choy, GSB alum and Senior Consultant at mbaMission. I like your international experience and high GMAT score, although the low GPA (albeit in a tough STEM major) is a concern. Were there any circumstances that affected your GPA?
