Will a calc course help my odds? [#permalink]

I would appreciate your input on the following. The Smith PT program is my number one choice for an MBA. I have taken the GMAT twice. The first time my nerves got to me and I got a 460. I took it 3 weeks later and improved to a 560 with a q score of 41 (64%). While this score does fall into the range at Smith I still feel I should retake and see if I can atleast crack 600. On the other hand I have the opportunity to take a business calculus course at NYU. Would it be better to take this course and get an A rather than risk not improving my GMAT score that much? I feel I have above average work experience. I am currently an analyst for a well known NYC bank. Also by the time I apply (fall 2007) I will most likely have two promotions. Thanks.

It depends on your undergraduate background. If you had no calculus or statistics in your undergrad curriculum, then taking one of those classes could be good. Otherwise, consider taking the GMAT again.

Or, consider doing both! You obviously want to maximise your odds of success, and it sounds like you're giving yourself a lot of time before you apply, so consider taking the class and re-taking the GMAT one more time (after some more studying).
