I am a rising junior and i was recently admitted to business school. Unfortunately, i have not taken statistics yet so I will have to wait until spring of my junior yr before i can take the introductory finance course because it requires stats as a pre-req. This presents a major problem in terms of my knowledge of finance during the key summer analyst recruitment interviews that take place during the months of November - February. Since I'm going to be a finance major, I'm sure that they're going to ask technical and in-depth questions about the things that I should have learned in my finance courses.
My question then is what should i do? It's technically possible for me to take a summer stats course but the price is outrageous since you have to pay per credit (in excess of 6k). Instead I was thinking of self studying finance over the summer by buying a finance textbook. Will this be effective and feasible or do you think it's an absolute necessity that i take the intro finance course in the fall rather than the spring to catch up?
