So, I guess my question is, how closely do schools look at the actual classes you took as an undergraduate in the application process? Do they just look at what your major was and your GPA? Should I highlight in my essay that although one would not think I've taken any business related courses, that because of my specialization areas I have taken stats, micro/macro economics, organizational psycology and accounting (although the accounting was an elective I took the quarter that I graduated because I was already considering bschool)?
Sorry if this sounds like a frivolous question, but especially since I'm applying to a PT program, where they cut out a lot of the prereqs, I'd like to give myself every advantage I can with a seemingly odd major. Thanks!
Most (if not all) schools will ask for your transcripts and they will probably take a look at which courses you took and how you performed in them. They won't just look at your major and GPA.
However, being a PT program, they may have a list of typical majors or a defined set of majors from which you can apply. I think you should send an e-mail to the school if the specific information is unclear.
Furthermore, what you will need to address during essays, is the why MBA, and the major may or may not come up during that particular process.
