What should I do for the next two years? [#permalink] New post 15 Apr 2013, 05:13
I'm just beginning the MBA research process, and I'm hoping to get some advice on what to do between now and when I plan on applying in 2-3 years. Of course, I need to take the GMAT, but what else? My GPA is 2.98 from very strong state school. Should I work on an alternative transcript? And if yes, what should I take and where (online or in-person)? Thanks for all your help.

Hi fevorking -

There's not quite enough information here to give you a solid response. For example, I don't know what your major was and therefore, I don't have a sense of the kinds of coursework you've taken.

Overall, you want to present a solid quantitative background to schools when you are applying. So courses like accounting, finance, and statistics are important to have in your background. Not only will it make you a more attractive candidate while applying, but it will make your life less stressful when you are in your MBA program because you won't be seeing that content for the first time.

As to where to take courses, I strongly recommend taking in person, faculty led courses at the best quality institution possible. I'm not a fan of online courses due to their variability in quality and reputation.

If I can help further, let me know!
