Overcoming Weak Math [#permalink]
14 Jan 2008, 07:58

Advice: I'm looking to take a class this semester at a community college to complement my application for R3 to Kellogg. I need to overcome an absence of Math classes in college (I did take Calc). Should I take Accounting, Stats, or Calculus? Or, two of them? And, if so, which two?

I may take Accounting, and then take Stats over the summer.

Definitely take Statistics and ace it. As for the other Math class, since you have already taken Calc, I think you should take Matrix algebra or Discrete Math. This will give your transcript a range of Math classes which I think would look good as opposed to taking Calc 1, 2 and 3.

I would not recommend taking a higher level math than calculus simply because it is not useful for business school. You might want to contact Kellogg and say you are thinking of taking a class which one do they recommend/prefer? I've heard some schools say they like Calc and other prefer accounting or stats. I would ask the school to be sure.

TSD,

Thanks for the quick reply.

I was not clear with my second question, though. I was saying, "Of the the three (classes -- Accounting, Statistics, and Calculus), should I take two of them? If so, which two?

Gmatclnb,

I'm not sure I follow: I took a regular Calculus class, which fulfilled my math requisite, as a freshman in college. Does that answer it?

In my school, the order was pre-calc, calc 1, calc 2 then calc 3. I got through all of them, however, but with not the highest of grades =(((((

I am wondering if I should retake a couple of them just to show that I am capable of doing well in Quant courses. I duno... Seeing how many people here have such high GPAs in quant intensive majors, I question my undergrad math course grades much too often

Back on topic - I would suggest Accounting and Statistics.

It’s been a long time, since I posted. A busy schedule at office and the GMAT preparation, fully tied up with all my free hours. Anyways, now I’m back...

Ah yes. Funemployment. The time between when you quit your job and when you start your MBA. The promised land that many MBA applicants seek. The break that every...
