Candidate:

Ms. Future CMO

About Me:

I had a late start to realizing my potential. Parents are part of a minority group/immigrants, they couldn’t guide me since they never finished school. Luckily, I crossed paths with mentors who inspired me to be more. Solo-traveling changed my mindset to be curious and self-aware, challenge my potential. I want to make an impact and pay it forward. **Additional Commentary: I understand my GPA is low. What test scores I need in order to be accepted into these programs? I am aiming for hybrid/part-time programs as I’d like to stay in NYC.

    Hi Ms. Future CMO, Melisa here from Stratus Admissions. I love that you are considering part time/hybrid programs and think that you will have a lot to offer (not to mention continue having a paycheck!) Over 80% of Booth’s Evening program commutes in from outside of Chicago. You asked about what you need on a test based on your lower GPA. Let’s look at Booth’s Evening Program for example, since it is your target school. The 80% range for GPA is 3.0-3.9, so you are essentially within this range – on the lower end. The GMAT 80% range is 630-740. What you need to think about is how you are going to display your ability to handle the academic curriculum (think quant type classes). Did …
