Hi Scott/Omari,
I would like to tap some feedback from you regarding the MBA program.
My stats:
Female, Asian-American
Age: 24 (will be 25 soon)
GPA: 3.2 B.S. in Computer Science
The United Federation of Teachers scholarship recipient
The Bureau of HEOP/VATEA Scholarship recipient
Teacher Assistant for Dept. of Technology & Society in college(2 terms)
Research Assistant for Dept. of CS in college(3 terms) – worked on online encryption and spatial memory programs
Member of Golden Key Honor Society
Worked as the senior computer lab P/T consultant during college
Worked as a summer college intern for a gov't agency - Dept. of Transportation and monitor supervisor for Summer Youth Employment Program
I recently joined my university alumni association and plan to participate into the Alumni Admission Volunteer Program
Since high school, I have volunteered at different non-profit organizations

F/T Work experience: 2.5 years (I'm working for one of the U.S. largest independent media services agency. I worked for 1.5 years as the Database Admin. Assistant. I had the opportunities to participate in the major New Business projects when I was a DB Assistant. I realized that I had more interests in the marketing finance (media spending issues). Then, I transferred to the Finance Dept. as a Contractor Billing Coordinator last year. I am in charge of the Print, Outdoor, Promotions and Interactive Internet Billing team in the event that my manger is out of the office. I partner with representatives from the Media Planning Group, Media Buying Group, and Account Group on a marketing based project on a current or potential client. I faciliate in ordering, maintaining and billing of media buys. I act as a liaison between the agency and the vendors.)

I took many math-related courses in college because it's part of my major requirement. However, I always got B range grades for those maht courses. I took GMAT once in 2004, but my score was low. I didn't study at all last time and now I'm preparing to take the GMAT in April. I do believe I can get a decent score this time. I'm just wondering whether the Adcom will overlook my poor score on my 1st GMAT attempt.

In addition, do you suggest me to take any calculus course or statistics course again? Will this help me to raise my chance and offset my UG math grades? I also took some entry-level business course in college. I got all As on those courses. At this stage, I want to pursue an MBA to round out my education. I took no formal or advanced brand management, marketing or finance classes in college. Although I will continue to have “hands-onâ€

Thanks for the post. My chief concern about your profile is work experience. It sounds like you're going in the right direction, but your experience sounds a little bit light for the schools in which you're interested. Targeting 2008, taking the GMAT and then getting to know the schools better in the meantime might be the best plan of action.

I wouldn't worry about the calculus course given your BS.
