Question about post-grad classes [#permalink] New post 07 Sep 2005, 06:33
Linda,

Would appreciate your thoughts on this:

I recently took a financial accounting course at a local continuing education program and had planned on taking a Calc course as well. The idea was to get exposure to these classes I never took undergrad a bolster a weaker quant GMAT (74% Q 710 overall). I have taken 2 stat courses, 5 econ courses in undergrad and the accounting--which i got an A in.

My undergrad gpa is a 3.5 so that is not much of a concern. I have recently been thinking my time might be better spent being more active in the community (which i have been for over a year) than sitting in class. Do you think having another quant course A would be worth my time or unnecessary?

I can definitely find better ways to use my time. Keep in mind I am planning on applying next fall for 2007 and targeting top 10 schools.

Thanks for your feedback!

Tough call. Calc is a requirement at many b-schools. If accepted at any of those programs, you will need to take calculus before you matriculate. However, if your community service is weak, you may want to beef that up now and take the calc in the winter or spring. Given your undergrad econ and stats, I agree that you would be wiser using your time now in community service, school research, or essay writing, and then taking the calc if required before you matriculate.

Good luck!
