GPA LOW TO STUDY A MBA IN FLORIDA?


I am concerned about my undergraduate GPA (I studied in South America), I got 2.7 out of 4.0. I want to apply for a MBA in Florida, exactly in University of Florida (Warrington).

Here are my details:

-90 TOEFL IBT
-700 GMAT
-5 years work experience (2 years in a big four EY and currently 3 years in banking).
-Bachelor in Economics

If it possible at all, that i can be accepted in this program, can I expect some sort of financial assistance from these colleges in the form of Scholarships/Assistantships?

Im not sure because of my low GPA.

Any help?

This depends so much on the quality of your application, so I suggest you ask them directly. Your GPA doesn't matter as much as you fear.

It's rather low, compared to their class' current average, which is 3.4. The Big Four work experience will look good to them as well.

But to offset the low GPA - and especially if you'll be looking for scholarships - you'll probably want a GMAT score that is a good deal higher than their current average (which is 685). A 750+ would help.

But yes, I agree with Duncan - your GPA won't immediately spell rejection. Contact them to see if they have any concerns.
