Hello!

I am currently planning on how best to improve my MBA candidacy and have identified my quantitative background as being a major weakness in my application - both on the GMAT and in my transcripts (was a humanities/social science major).

My question today is in regards to the latter. I would like to re-take Calculus and Statistics, but am unsure whether the ranking/reputation/etc. of the school at which I take these courses will matter to business school admissions committees. I am currently looking at a community college and a major university in my city. There are obviously cost inefficiencies with going the community college route, but I don't want that to be a hindrance if the other option is more well-known or respected.

Of course, I will aim to perform well in the courses regardless of where I take them, but I wasn't sure if you had an opinion on to whether factors outside of grades are things I should even be considering.

Thanks so much!

Performance on the GMAT particularly on the quant side is the best way to demonstrate quant proficiency. However, additional coursework can helpful. One it can show some proficiency and two it shows determination and effort to address a potential concern. The more similar the class you take to an MBA classroom the better here. But do what makes sense here, community college classes are fine, you don't need to take your classes at the expensive private school in your area if it is out of your price range. What is more important is make sure you secure an A in your classes. I would avoid online classes but an in person class should be fine wherever you take it.
