If the school is so concerned about the other professor's grading that they are offering the course again, then they should do something to correct it by wiping out the grades. It makes me think there is some other reason the school is offering the course again to those students.
Well my question isn't related to any current B-School application I am working one but might affect one later down the road. Currently I am doing MBA with majors in Banking & Finance from a top school in Pakistan. I plan to apply to ivy league in 2009/2010. My undergrad CGPA was 3.3 and my current CGPA in MBA is 3.65. I aced nearly every course in my MBA except for one titled "Financial Systems". I got a C+ in this particular subject (GPA 2.5). This was not due to rather horrid marking and checking criteria of the course instructor (He failed 50% of the class by the way). My school has now offered all the class to repeat the course (at no cost and with a different instructor). The catch is that this course would be listed as a 'repeat' in the transcript. My question is that
1. Would it affect my application when after a couple of years I apply to major school in the US and UK?
2. How do admission staff view students with 'repeat' course(s) ? Do they view it negatively?
3. Should I actually go ahead and repeat the course? The improvement in my CGPA would be from 3.65 to 3.70-3.75 ( considering I get A/A- in the course which I DEFINITELY WILL)
