I got a C+ in Linear Algebra in senior year of undergrad. No real excuse, just senioritis. (Overall GPA is 3.7) Does this need to be explained in an optional essay? Or will my strong work experience make it irrelevant? Will it affect my chances for T15? TIA!

I would ever think about it again. The 3.7 is very solid, and I don’t think retaking is a good use of your time

I wouldn’t explain it if you don’t have a compelling reason for why you couldn’t get a better grade. Leave it be. Make sure the rest of your application is strong.

Willing to bet they notice grade dips in half their applicants in their senior year. As long as you got good grades in other equally quantitative intense classes it won’t be a concern. If that is the only quant class you have on the transcript (I highly doubt it), it may be a concern

Don’t worry - they won’t care. The application is so much more than one grade at uni. Had a C in economics during my bachelors and got admitted to H/S - they never asked about it and probably didn’t even notice.

Thank you!! Would you recommend retaking a Linear Algebra class on an alternative transcript?

Hi everyone,

Not long ago I obtained bachelors and in the interim I have been working at Morgan Stanley.

Is it even possible to to do for instance masters in law if I only have bs in business or for example masters in something related to renewable energy or so?
