Copied from a previous post in different section of this forum...any input is greatly appreciated!

"My name is William and I am trying to determine if it is advisable for me to complete the Online Pre-MBA Math course at the UCLA Extension. Some details below:

-Undergraduate GPA 3.3 at UC Davis
-Two statistics courses, one lower division and one upper division, grades of B in both.
-No other college level math courses
-Certified Economic Development Finance Professional
-Working as a loan officer at a domestic micro finance institution (heavy on credit/financial analysis)
-GMAT not yet taken, but CATs show above 70th %tile for quant at the moment with 1.5 months of study

I will be applying to California schools within top 40 (UC Berkeley, UCLA, USC, UC Davis, UC Irvine, etc.)."

Thanks!

Without showing some strong quantative ability, Haas, Anderson, and Marshall will be a long shot. Davis and Irvine will be a bit easier to get into. Everything depends on your GMAT right now. With a strong quant score, you may be able to get away without taking any math courses; however, even with a really strong quant score, Haas may still be a long shot without some other demonstrating factors.

Thanks bakfed, this pushes my timeline back a bit since the course ends mid December, but it seems like I may not have enough mitigating factors to not take this class.

Others, feel free to chime in! Again your input is greatly appreciated.

Sorry to chime in late. I am a UCLA Riordan MBA Fellow. I have a very weak quant background. After reviewing my profile they reccomended I take calculus through UCLA extension. UCLA MBA program really likes calculus for some reason. I was required to pass the calculus with an A in order to complete the fellowship. I was also told by director of the program to maximize my GMAT quant score. If I scored high on the GMAT and got the A in the class then they would be confident in my quant ability. They also recommended I take stats before I matriculate. I hope that helps.
