Greetings!

I am interested in taking some accredited classes in Mathematics and Statistics in order to demonstrate my proficiency in quant and to help partially offset a low (3.15) undergrad GPA. The only twist is that I am currently active duty military, and spend a good deal of my time training without access to computer or physical classes. Is it worth taking online courses to help boost my application, and if so what courses would you guys recommend?

Thanks!

Hey there,
Well it's a nice idea, and it certainly can't hurt. But to be honest, it won't "offset" a low GPA. Far better would be for you to focus your energies on acing the GMAT.
(although if you have time, by all means, do both)

Best,
Jon

I would suggest select courses from EDX or Coursera. You will get the best material from World's best universities/companies and can add a great value to your resume.

Have you taken the GMAT yet? If not, I would recommend investing your efforts there.The GMAT can make more of an impact on how your application package is received than additional classes. If you have taken the GMAT and performed well then additional coursework can help out
