I have been out of college for over three years and earned my masters over two years ago, but I want to retake some courses like genetics and organic chem. I want to know how to go about this. Would it look bad to take these courses online? I am working full-time and unsure if I would have time to physically show up to a class. Please help!

You have to decide if retaking is even a good option. Schools don’t do grade replacement when calculating GPA so the only reason to retake is if like you got a D or F the first time. If you get an A the second time it’ll average out to a C overall on the transcript.
