    Wharton with a 2.31 from Troy State and an unknown GMAT score? Sorry. This is not going to happen. Your background is interesting (thank you for your service) but Wharton has been over-indexing GMAT scores in recent years and just won’t bite unless you can get a GMAT score that is pretty close to their median or average. My best advice is to get that score and execute really well on your application to have a chance. But you really want to select a half dozen other schools where you may have greater opportunity. Think about Darden, Duke, Michigan for starters.

    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission! Congratulations on your career accomplishments, and thank you for your service to our country! The future role that you’ve identified for yourself, within the federal/public spaces of Microsoft, aligns very well with your experience to date, and the business acumen leadership skills you’ll gain in an MBA program would serve you well in this role.

    However, from an admissions standpoint, you have some hurdles to overcome. Your GPA is very low – you’ll need to explain this in the applications’ optional essays. Even though your master’s GPA is higher, you’ll also want to offset your undergrad performance with a very high GMAT or GRE score (one that is above the average of the schools you target).

    Even if you …

    Hi Mr. Microsoft consultant, this is Donna Bauman, Senior MBA Admissions Counselor with Stratus Admissions, and first of all thank you for your service! I think you have an interesting background and your MS in data science helps you both for showing a better gpa and also for having some strong tech skills – and given all the uncertainty in the world now it is not bad that you want to return to your pre MBA employer Microsoft. If your recommenders can address that you would be welcomed back post MBA that can be very helpful so consider having a conversation with your recommenders around this topic. Being first gen college and Hispanic are going to be helpful in the application process but it is …

    While Wharton will be tough, your timing could not be better as Wharton just announced a quant / tech program which would benefit from your graduate degree in the data science--which is much more demanding than data analysis or data analytics. You need to apply to more MBA programs because some may reject you simply due to your low undergraduate GPA from a military friendly non-elite school.
