    @Dance9494‌ Well that's not always just supposed to fall in your lap and is professor dependent (most general calc. courses will be easy/medium, but pre-reqs like Decision analytics in the b-school and fin. accounting will be made kind of challenging, and there is no way to maneuver to easy professors there because there is usually only 1 instructor or exams are standardized.English, of course varies and depends on how much of the work you do and if the instructor requires actual good writing for a good grade or if they just inflate poor/mediocre writing. There is usually no way to tell before hand who requires what in the freshman English courses before you sign up and have gotten the first major writing assignment back, so just do the best you can and assume they are serious) but like 1/2 of the student body has 3.5+. No matter who or what you take, just do the work. well and it won't matter how hard it is...hardly no one is going to make it impossibly hard on you to do well, but tons of instructors aren't going to go out of their way to make it ridiculously easy on you because they want the reputation of this school to actually be real and they want students actually learning. Just do what you're supposed to do and do it well, even if it ends up challenging. Don't be all hardcore per-business with: "these classes are just a set of hoops I have to jump through so I can get to the b-school, so I need grades just to fall into my lap for these courses" and you'll likely do even better. Lastly, 70-80% of people get into the b-school, so just chill and enjoy the academics even if you don't just cruise through them (as you probably shouldn't to get the optimal experience). No need to freak out, just do what you need to do and try to enjoy it.

    How is he helpful? Bernie is not even in the B-school.

    @ActualStudent‌ The question inquired about the difficulty of admission to the B-School. That in no way requires a first-hand experience to access data about admission, or about pre-reqs blatantly posted on the website. And surely, through conversation with peers, one would gain a fairly accurate grasp of the school.

    Gee, how about I know people taking DSci and Financial accounting and have known several who have taken that class in the past. They don't appear to or sound as if they have changed in reputation or difficulty level. Everything else I said is just freaking common sense if you a) went to Emory in any capacity or b) Know how to read off of the GBS website. It's like not having to be a genius or having to go through the course to say that one would have to work if you want an A in Dr. Weinschenk's ochem course (or many science courses in general) or something. I, for example, was able to tell that Emory's intro. science courses were smaller than the ones at WashU without going to WashU lol. I mean, I suppose both schools' enrollment data for such courses could be made up, but we're not talking SAT scores here :p
