I am waitlisted at USC and am debating whether to retake the gmat or take a pre-mba calculus course from a university extension program. Any advice on which would be the better option? My gmat score is 650 (44Q, 35V) and I also have a low gpa (3.1). The math course is finished on June 5th so I’m not sure if that is too late to make any difference if I report my grade. If I retake the gmat, when should I try to retake it by?
Is there any reason this is an either/or choice? Time? Are you accepted any where else?
