    Hi,

    I graduated undergrad with a gpa of about 2.8, majoring in economics and philosophy. my econ gpa was about 2.9 while my philosophy was about 3.5. My GMAT score is in the 95th percentile and I’ve worked for 2 years in finance and have a couple of big banks on my resume.
    I am trying to go back to get my masters in economics part time while living in ny, so somewhere in the city. Is NYU a plausible school for me to get into with the low gpa i had in undergrad — are my high GMAT score and good work experience enough to make up for it?
