Hey so I am a senior at the George Washington School of Business and I desperately need help and advice with the job search and applying to graduate school. I spend the first two years of my academic career at Northern Virginia Community College and was accepted into the George Washington School of Business. I studied abroad at Yale University for two months and then started at George Washington in the Spring of 2017. I have been interested in applying to the Yale Silver Scholars program and as such I decided to take a lot of credits so that I could leverage my competitive chances and also so that I could simply graduate on time- graduate no later than Fall 2018. Unfortunately, I did not do as well as I wanted to re and am incredibly worried I will not be able to get a job after college because of my under performance. I ultimately want to get an M.B.A at my dream school Yale SOM but realistically I am worried that I will not even manage to get a good job with my grades. Also, I sat for the GMAT and scored well enough to get into George Washington's M.B.A program but I am still not satisfied with my score and will be retaking it in December. Anyways, my primary concern is how can I overcome a low g.p.a and secure a solid job if I don't get in? If I don't get in I would like to work at a solid firm and try to apply again. I know George Washington isn't a super prestigious school like Wharton or M.I.T but is there still a chance for me? Also, my parents both earned a masters at the George Washington School of Business so I feel like I would also be letting them down if I do not get into a top ten school and or get a really good job. I am also very worried that my ethnic background will be a disadvantage as I am half Indian and Chinese. Please help.
