Thanks Alex for your quick reply.
Clearly it is no secret that I am an uptight perfectionist. My conscious mind would love to loosen up but my subconscious is not having any of it.
Your post baffles me
I am honored; given the thousands of posts you have read, I would think it really takes something to baffle you!
to be honest.
Please do be honest. You tell people what they need to hear. I think that is why you have attracted such a following in the MBA-aspirant community.
Maybe it's lost in translation (given the formality of your writing I'm guessing English isn't your first language)
Hopefully the "Mr. Chu" was not off-putting; I was only trying to be respectful. Politesse is lacking in our society and it never hurts to exhibit some.
Actually, English is my first language. These words come from the product of American public schools. Amazing, eh? I realize most of my peers are barely literate, but it doesn't mean we need to lower the bar. We are only recently starting to "cut the tall poppy" in this country. Give it another 20 years.
that's what makes them dynamic, interesting and *real*.
I take your response to mean that repeating the course would be viewed by the adcoms as my not having my priorities straight? Like a kid retaking a 770? In this light, it could actually be viewed as detrimental to my application? My other grades + GMAT would quiet any concerns that the D-minus may raise about my quantitative ability?
Again, I appreciate your time and hope this doesn't put you out.
