I am applying for Fall 2007 and i did horribly in Calculus in undergrad (C-)

I am wondering if it will be to my advantgage to retake calculus at a local college?

For example - MIT's site mentioned:

Is there any academic preparation required prior to applying/enrolling? Do I need an undergraduate degree in business to apply?

The MIT Sloan School welcomes applications from college graduates from all areas of concentration—the humanities, the social sciences, the physical sciences, and engineering. The only specific requirement is that the applicant must have completed formal courses in differential and integral calculus and in economic theory, both macro- and microeconomics. If these subjects have not been taken in a previous academic program, they may be covered by formal courses prior to enrollment.

And more specifically - can someone help to distinguish between differential and integral calculus? I was looking at NYU's cont. ed site and there is only one calc class (Calculus for Business). Not sure if that would suffice?

Any experience in this situation would be appreciated!

I had the same question... but when some schools say they want to see calculus, others cancel the requirement... I think University of Maryland is one of the schools that doesn't require it any more...

I took business calculus too and I think it counts... but would like to make sure.

so if we do need one should we take Calculus for Social and Life Sciences or Analytical Geometry+Calculus
