Second BA before applying to MBA? [#permalink]

Hi everyone. I am currently about to graduate with a bachelors in anthropology. My major gpa is around 3.4-3.5, and my overall is 3.1 (due to me taking multiple science classes in one semester, because I was originally tihnking about becoming a physical therapist). I know that work experience is very important to b-schools, but the hard part is getting a job good enough to be looked upon favorably. I am currently an accounting assistant and have worked for several months in the US dept of commerce. I was thinking about going back to school to get a second BA in finance to probably help further my chances of getting a better job, but a lot of people don't recommend getting a second BA. What should I do?

Get a job and succeed in a career plan. It is infinitely better to even fail in a career and work out what you want to do in the next year or so than to do another BA.

Degrees are not like failed relationships.
