I'll be graduating from UIUC with a B.S. in Civil & Environmental Engineering May, 2019. I currently have 2.8 GPA and working to try to boost it as close as i can to a 3.0 GPA. I don't stand a chance to do my master's in CEE but i was thinking of applying to the MBA program that we have. They only provided the mean which is 3.29 i was wondering if its possible to get in something like that with a low GPA?

    MBAs are usually more valuable after some work experience.

    Do what you can to pull up your GPA. Use the career center at UIUC to help find a job. Work for a couple of years. That work experience will help you determine whether or not you do need to go to grad school, and if so in which field. After a few years of work, your GPA won't necessarily matter as much as it does now.
