For the MBA you have a chance if you can pull 700+ (preferably 750+) on the GMAT and get very good letters of rec; very solid work experience will help, too, as you probably know. A friend of mine just got into Wharton with a 3.85 GPA from a school called Pacific Lutheran University (you have never heard of it, no one has), so it is completely possible to make the jump from random undergrad to prestigious B-school. If you are talking about B-school PhD programs then everything I said about MBA still applies, but you also need to have very solid research experience (like a publication in a journal). You certainly have a chance if you can score well on the GMAT and I wish you the best of luck!

I would think so. I got into Harvard Graduate School (GSAS) from SUNY Binghamton. I was 9th in my graduating class.

Pharaoh Originally Answered: Is my story too personal for grad school personal statement?
I would perhaps briefly mention your personal struggles. Don't go into a lot of detail, but do mention them. Focus more on how you overcame your struggles rather than the struggles themselves. That is the most important part, and will make your essay stand out in a good way. Good luck!

I think you should try to focus more on what your goals are now, and not focus on anything that could sound like you're looking for pity. I would mention, briefly, what caused you to achieve less than you wanted, how you've learned from the experience, how the experience has influenced your current decision to return to school, and (again) focus on what your goals are now and how you expect to achieve them. Personally, as a military wife, I have little to no sympathy for other military wives. Most of us have something that we deem traumatic going on while the guys are gone. I would not go in depth about how he was gone and deployed, just that you did not have the support from him that you would have liked.
