    Agree with the other assessments here that you are going to have a problem at Cambridge with that low a GPA from a school that is not on many radars. I also agree that rather than take a secod level CFA exam, you should be retaking the GMAT and getting a 720 to 730 score to offset that awful GPA. You also need to explain your low grades in college. Was there a difficult event that distracted you and led to those grades or were you just partying like crazy?

Because your low GPA increases the unpredictability of …

    Hi there! It’s Stephanie Horn, Master Consultant with the MBA Exchange and recent Poets and Quants “Top 10 Admissions Consultants”. Mr. Nuclear Manager, there are several promising aspects to your profile. You went to a top-tier institution and you have a solid GMAT score. You will need to explain your GPA as it will be below the average for the schools you are applying to. It seems counter-intuitive that a business school would be concerned about the activities you do outside of work, but in reality schools pay a lot of attention to these activities — they provide a chance to showcase your leadership and team-building abilities. I recommend that you find an organization that matters to you — it can be a sport, or …

    Not so sure about this one. I would pick a few more schools: Rotterdam, ESADE, and Warwick come to mind.
