I'm coming into the MBA admissions process from a "nontraditional" background with experience at STEM nonprofits. I'm hoping to use the MBA to pivot towards working in corporate social responsibility, leveraging my academic background in environmental science. Interested specifically in supply chain management and market research. My GPA wasn't great, but I went to a school outside the US that wasn't big on grade inflation and I took difficult classes. I wouldn't necessarily feel the need to justify my GPA, but interested to hear other opinions. I'm a Forte MBALaunch participant, too.
