Hi,

I recently talked to an MBA admissions consultant who recommended I take a finance class this summer before applying to MBA programs in the fall. I'm 27, male, got a 750 on my GPA, have very good/interesting experience working in finance at a Media company in NYC, but my major weakness is my college GPA. I went to a top public university, but had a very rough freshman year which brought my GPA right below 3.0. I did much better my junior/senior year when I got between 3.3 and 3.7 for all semesters. I'm shooting for schools in the top 10-15.

Do you think it's worthwhile to take a finance class (and make sure I get an A) so i can use this as evidence that i'm smarter than my sub par GPA? Also, the consultant told me it's irrelevant where I take the class (either online or in a top school) -- do you agree with this?

I appreciate any help.

Thanks,
Matt
