I took Statistics during undergrad. It was offered as a 3 part series and I received a "B," "C," and "B" respectively. I have since taken the CFA and now know I could definitely get an "A" in a statistics class. My questions are as follows:
1) Should I retake statistics in order to show business schools that the poor grades are no longer representative of my "statistics knowledge?" If so...
2) Should I take (A) business statistics or (B) advanced quantitative statistics (both of which are offered through UCLA extension)? If I take business statistics, I'll receive college transferrable credits but, (on the down side) business stats is more of an introductory management course. On the other hand, if I take advanced quantitative statistics I WILL NOT receive college transferrable credits since the class is geared toward professional development. However, unlike business stats, advanced quantitative stats is an upper division statistics course created for those with previous knowledge of statistics.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
