Quick background: I am a military officer being medically boarded (anticipate a medical retirement around this time next year), and looking at applying to B-School for the class of 2017. I took three online MBA courses back in 2010. I was ambitious and thought I could get a MBA and function as a platoon leader all at once (I couldn't). I got an A on the first two, but the last course I couldn't finish because I got sent on a training exercise for 30 days with no internet. I didn't really consider petitioning to drop the grade or anything at that point, just took the F and moved on with my career. Well now I am trying to figure out the best strategy going forward. Should I just not include those classes/transcript on my application, attempt to petition to have the grade removed, or retake the course (it will remove the grade from my GPA, but not the grade from the transcript)? Thanks for the help.
Since you are talking about one course, might as well retake and get that off your GPA, methinks…
