I have a couple questions for any current finance majors willing to answer; I took my placement test in math and placed into college algebra, which is math 117 at my school. Is starting out at this level going to hurt me if I plan to major in finance? Also, how strong in math do you really HAVE to be to do well as a finance major? I aced adv. alg. (no big accomplishment, I realize) and stats in high school, but I have always had to put in some extra work when it comes to succeeding in math. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
