    Hi, this is Deepak Punwani from MBA Exchange. You have a few things going in your profile. You have a STEM undergrad degree from a relatively well known University. You have a very good GMAT score. And you have a good Masters program GPA. Am guessing if you can explain the low undergrad GPA, there wouldn’t be too many questions about your academic prowess.

You might want to explain the lower GPA in the optional essay (just a line or two) and explain that it won’t be an indicator of how you’ll perform in an MBA program. Showing a solid transcript from your master’s program will also be helpful. You’ll need to nail the Why MBA part of your application, since you want to pivot to the business side away from the technical side. You already have an advanced degree, so be sure to explain why an MBA is critical to reach that post-MBA goal of a …
