So long story short, I was pressured by parents to pursue a degree in Biology and I was miserable throughout college. I made some D's in upper level science classes like Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Genetics, Physiology, and Microbiology. Safe to say that I was not meant for the medical field but due to my circumstances at the time (realized the issue when I was an upperclassman in college running short on cash and in danger of taking out loans if I stayed longer), I trucked through and finished with a 2.1 GPA as a Biology major.
Ever since high school, my passion was in finance but I never had a chance to pursue it. In the past year or so, I have been doing a lot of related reading and it does interest me. I know that you should not keeping looking back at the past but I strongly feel that had I majored in finance or business, my GPA would have been in the high 3s.
If I could tell business schools anything, it would be that I would make for an awful doctor or scientist (given my bad grades in upper level science classes) but I would have had stellar grades if i was a business or finance major.
An MBA might be something I end up looking into so I have done a ton of research on admissions, one thing I have learned is that prestige matters. Well, I know that there is no way in the world I am getting into a top 10 program no matter what I do.
I've heard of people that had GPAs in the low 3s and high 2s get into decent MBA programs after doing some re-invention after college but the only thing I have done after college is worked as a lab tech. I am 25 years old right now, I decided to post this thread and get more insight.
Due to my abysmal GPA that I graduated college with, have I pretty much put myself in a position where no amount of re-invention or good test scores can really get me into a decent MBA?
