    I'm applying too and I think personally your SATs should be higher and your GPA should be higher too.

    Business schools don't require you to have done anything related to business because the school can teach you business. So, if your ecs don't show interest in business, it doesn't mean that you don't want to study business at Tepper and therefore Tepper shouldn't think anything against you for it.

    I think it's definitely a reach for you, but not impossible.
