Retake GMAT or math course? [#permalink] New post 05 Apr 2011, 12:27
Hi,

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?

Thank you!

Is there any reason this is an either/or choice? Time? Are you accepted any where else?

What is the likelihood of your earning an A in the math class or of getting a 80%+ quant score on the [ur=http://www.accepted.com/mba/gmat.aspxl]GMAT[/url]? The option with greater likelihood is the one I would recommend.

If you have not been accepted anywhere else and want to [url=http://www.accepted.com/mba/reapplication.aspx?utm_source=GMATClubForum&utm_medium=Post&utm_campaign=101Kit&utm_content=101Kit[/url], then consider taking the class, earning an A, and then retaking the GMAT if you are not accepted from the [url=http://www.accepted.com/mba/wait-list.aspx?utm_source=GMATClubForum&utm_medium=Post&utm_campaign=101Kit&utm_content=101Kit]waitlist[/url].
