I'm sure this question has been asked frequently. However, I'm an undergrad, currently finished my sophomore first semester. I have gotten Ds (twice currently, not in the same semesters) on my transcripts due to mental health issues and having not withdrawn before the drop deadline. However, I have retaken the first D and plan to retake the other as well under course forgiveness. They won't be factored in my GPA but they will show up on my transcript. I just wanted to know how bad grades on transcript would affect my chances when will applying to MBA programs?


You will have the opportunity to discuss your transcript in your Personal Statement when you apply. You may choose to discuss it or not, you may have a better story you may want to talk in lieu of it later in your life, i.e a project you worked on, an internship, etc.
