<p>Where do you get this statistic/idea? If you have a source to support this I am sure everyone would love to see it. I just find it hard to believe that a majority of UT students do not take their Calc and Econ classes on campus. Especially with strong engineering and economics programs and presumably strong students matriculating through those majors.</p>

<p>most kids transferring into Mccombs take the classes at CC, atleast thats what i get from this board.</p>

<p>its recommend you take Cal at a CC? right</p>

<p>So what about diff eq (M 427K)</p>

<p>@pierrechn: As has been pointed out in the past, posters on this forum will not necessarily be representative of the student population at large. It is a leap to assume that because one hears something discussed on College Confidential it will hold true for the general student population. And just because a course of action is recommended here by some posters does not mean it will be the best choice for other students. Caveat emptor.</p>

<p>your right thats cool, i will stop making such broad assumptions lol.</p>

<p>you won't have to worry about an MBA until well after you graduate from college. It is VERY rare for somebody to go directly from undergrad to MBA. It happens a lot more frequently in bad schools. Every now and then it will happen for exceptional students at a top 20 school. Most MBA programs want somebody to have a minimum of 3-4 years of experience in the work force.</p>

<p>if you want to be an econ major or a business major, you will have to take the requisite calc and econ courses. They are just pre-requisites so its not a big deal where you take them. I never used calc outside of one econ class at UT (420k) and they were very simple calculus concepts being used. I'm not sure you could knock out all of your calc and econ pre-requisites in a summer before attending. That would be a huge load over a summer, even at a CC. It woudn't hurt to do as much as possible though.</p>

<p>the only benefits of taking courses in residence for internal transfer IMO is that you can make your UT GPA better by taking them at UT. It might also show the college you're applying to that you can get good grades in a harder setting, but I've seen UT students take these courses at CC and transfer in to McCombs before. Just make sure that if you take something at CC that you have to take it for a grade and not just credit. Some courses you can opt to satisfy requirements with "credit only" (meaning all you have to do is get a C, but the C doesn't show up on your transcript).</p>

<p>If you are going to take Calc at UT, I highly HIGHLY recommend Gonzalez for M408C and D.
Best. Teacher. Ever.</p>

<p>Thanks for your help everyone. I think I'm going to look at maybe taking micro at a CC.</p>
