I am a 24-year-old female working as a business analyst at Oracle. I received a BA in Management from Texas A&M and my cumulative GPA is 3.29.

I’m wondering if I should retake a couple courses I made C’s in. I live in Austin, Tx and would be able to retake them at UT Austin.

The 3 courses I made C’s in are also very vital to MBA Admissions…
Statistics – C
Macro Econ – C
Calculus 1 – C

If I retake those 3 courses and get A’s that will bring me a 3.34 GPA.

Is this worth it? Vanderbilt's average GPA is 3.4 and their average GRE is 314

The 4 schools I am looking at are:

Vanderbilt (#1 choice by far)
Notre Dame
Washington - Foster
Ohio State

Hi there - thanks for writing! Taking a few quant courses (and getting As in them) can definitely help you assure the AdCom that you're prepared for the quantitative rigors of the MBA program. I would suggest taking a couple of the following courses (in order of priority): statistics, calculus, accounting, finance, MICROecon.

I hope that helps! Let me know of any other questions :)
