Hi! I'm really interested in the MCIT (on campus) at UPenn, but I guess it might be pretty tough for me to get accepted. I'm from Germany and I have recently finished by bachelor's in business studies. I don't know my official GPA score yet, because I haven't had any transcript evaluation done so far, but my grade should be equal to a GPA of 3.4 (maybe slightly higher like 3.44). According to my bachelor's certificate I was among the top 8.2% students of that degree (out of 1900), but I don't know if that's good enough. Some more facts about me: - My grades in both of my maths classes and in a class that covered some basic vba programming and database knowledge were quite good (4.0, 3.7, 3.7) - I did a special program with an integrated trainee program at a big industrial corporation besides my studies => I usually had to work during exam phase and had to study in the evening or take a vacation to focus on my exams; I also had to take additional exams for my professional education and earn some additional credits during my first few semesters to cope with the high workload during my last semester (part-time job, thesis, classes); the good thing is: I've gained a lot of work experience in various departments and I got the chance to work abroad (in Europe) for two months - I also spent a semester abroad in China and took two Chinese classes at university (only got credits for one of them) - Apart from my job and my international experiences, my extracurricular activities are not very exciting - After my bachelor's, I got a job offer at the company I did my trainee program at an I'm now working there as a sales controller What do you think of my chances to get admitted if I reach a good GRE score? I'm just not sure if it even makes sense for me to get prepared for the GRE if I will be rejected anyway because of my GPA.
