    Hi Ms. Project Manager Muffy — this is Kate Richardson with mbaMission. I am impressed by your big life win! I I have worked with successful applicants to schools like Tepper with a low GPA or GMAT score, but the two together is going to be a challenge. I would either retake your test or consider the GRE instead. And potentially pair that new test score with some supplemental coursework in quantitative subjects to show Tepper you can handle their rigorous coursework. I also agree with the suggestion to pursue part-time programs as a backup. Otherwise, I like your focus on project management, and that seems like a realistic post-MBA path that makes good use of your background. Best of luck!

With a really low GPA, you need to have a standardized test that is very close to the school average. …
