Additional considerations

What about average GPAs, GMAT or GRE test scores?

We review each application file individually and holistically, considering GMAT and GRE test scores and GPAs in context with the rest of the file, including essays, resume and recommendations. We look at your undergraduate transcripts not only for the overall GPA, but also for the courses you took and how you performed in them. We also look closely at your resume and strongly consider your interview in order to understand what you might contribute to your classmates' understanding of complex contemporary marketing and branding issues.
