How is an upward trend in grades viewed when compared to cum. ugrad gpa?
I know that the admissions committee views the cumulative undergraduate gpa, but many of the top MBA programs such as Kellogg, Wharton, Harvard, Stanford and Sloan say that they do not look at the gpa in isolation. They look for trends of strengths or weaknesses in particular areas, as well as rigor of curriculum.
How much does the upward trend help an applicant.
