If you've already graduated, they only consider courses taken up to the point of receiving your first bachelor's degree in your GPA. Taking more classes won't help in that case. If you haven't graduated, though, you can pad your GPA a little (though the huge number of credits you already have mean you'd probably have to take an extra year's worth to make an actual difference).
Your best option: 178+.
