Hello All!

This application season was dismal... I am on Stern's waiting list and it's really my only hope... and that's pretty slim but I want to do anything I can to improve my candidacy.

I scored very low on quant on the GMAT (I mean LOW). I have taken several math-related courses in college (6-8 years ago) including Intro to Micro/Macro, Intermediate Macro, Methods in Matrix and Models, Statistics, Management Science, and received all A's or A-.

I took financial accounting and calculus my first semester and received Cs (those were my worst grades EVER as my mother was extremely ill my first year of college and I was frequently traveling home that semester- it didn't help my calc teacher didn't speak english well at all!).

I am considering updating NYU and telling them I am taking a summer math class but not sure what to sign up for - Many places recommend Stats or Micro Econ but I have taken those - is it worth taking again or should I sign up for Calculus since I did poorly in that?

My only feat about calculus was it's been a while since I took a math course and not sure if it will be a really rough class for someone who hasn't taken math in a while...

THANKS FOR ANY ADVICE!!!

You would need an A to make it worthwhile, and Calculus is a hard class to get an A in. That being said, you can always take it at a community college or online (where it will be easier) and hope you squeek out an A. If not, just don't tell the adcom you took it. Worth a shot. Study up on trig and algebra beforehand.

Does Stern provide any WL feedback? I'm currently on the WL at Cornell and I was told to take MBA Math (endorsed by Cornell) and to retake the GMAT. I have the biggest verbal quant split ever. Maybe you should get some feedback to see what adcom suggests to improve your candidacy.
