Saw it mentioned on her by someone, so I was wondering if it is worth the investment? I scored a 700 on my only attempt at the GMAT, and really don't want to take it again (guess I might have to though). My undergrad GPA is a 3.05, so I want something to boost my application a little. Will MBA Math help with that?

MBA Math can help if you have a low quant score, especially if it is combined with work experience where you didn't have a chance to demonstrate strong quant skills. So it will depend on how the quant portion of the GMAT went for you. That said, if you got a 700 on your first attempt it's definitely worth doing a bit more prep & trying again. :) The GMAT is an instant screener and a higher score there will definitely do a lot more for your application than MBA Math.

If quant is a weakness for you & you do decide a quant course, MBA Math is just one option. It's also totally fine to just do some MBA-relevant courses (finance, statistics, etc) at a community college or online to show that you are making the effort to address the weakness.

turcorox911 , What was your score breakout? Check out this chart below to get an idea of how improving your Verbal or Quant may improve your total score.

Congrats on the 700 by the way! That's a great score.

turcorox911 in your case I do not think you should rely on this as a way to sidestep retaking the GMAT.
