My transcript sucks - What to do?

How is your graduate or under graduate transcript? Weak. Let us define a weak grade - anything from B- and downwards. Admission committee is looking for consistency in your mark list. What if my marks were erratic?


Maybe, you are the type of person who got carried away with the extra-curricular activity, and as a result suffered in your academics. Can you prove it? This story can turn your weakness into your strength, if your extra-curricular had anything to do with leading or managing a team.


If you do not have any good story to compensate your poor grades, a stellar GMAT score can come to your rescue. A 700+ GMAT score with a balanced verbal and quant scores can more than justify your lack of top grades.

Private Course

Join private courses in subjects where you were below par. This initiative would show that you are a pro-active person, the one who does not sulk in setbacks. This would also show how you value education and how serious you are in joining the course.
