Pass/No Pass Corporate Finance

Hey Everyone,

I am currently an Economics student at my university. I am taking corporate finance which is NOT required for my major, but is basically for building a background for recruiting.

I have a high GPA but this semester, the business school (which I'm not in) has implemented a new strict curve. I didn't know this until I enrolled. Even though I find the material understandable, the curve has made it almost impossible to get an A. In absolute terms, my grade is in the 90%'s, but the curve makes little points screw my grade up.

Would it be better for recruiting purposes to maintain my high GPA, with a Pass on my transcript for the class, or get a B (which is what I see happening at this point)? I intend on taking more advanced classes in finance afterwards, for which this is a pre-req.

Any advice is much appreciated!
