re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - DieDaily
For anyone that took the FIN 701 exam Monday night, your grade might be posted. I got a 99. Looks like everyone has done well so far, so congratulations! So happy to be at the halfway point of this class. I also wonder why we have so much more time for these next 2 exams. Maybe the material is to...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - DieDaily
I thought the FIN 701 was about the same as the first difficulty-wise, but I feel like I was better prepared this time. I, at least, feel better about it than the previous exam, which I was convinced I did poorly on until receiving my grade. I had an even split of qualitative and quantitative questi...

[quote]Are these excel cheat sheets different than the toolkits? [/quote]I use the provided toolkits, specifically when I'm reading, but I find that making my own helps me learn. At least, that's the hope. I also like tailoring it to the specific types of questions that Dr. Vines asks rather than ju...

[quote] Am I the only one actually reading every page of the book?[/quote]I'm also reading it all and occasionally taking notes when I feel I hit a section that could produce a decent test question. However, chapter 8 feels like a blur for me. (I especially like how the chapter has said on at least ...

[quote]So no exams for ECON?[/quote]Items 4 and 5 are the closest thing to an exam for that course. He gives you the questions as a Word document and you have to work out the solutions on your own. (It is not uncommon for him to delete forum posts for people asking for help on these.) When you fe...

[quote]I took the Econ/Statistics intro course, and it was 6-7 chapters a week and I was so overworked and realized I did not like economics at all.[/quote]I also took that class and it's the hardest class I've taken in the program, mostly because of the ludicrous workload. FIN 701 is my 6th class.[...

re: LSUS Online MBA Reviews - DieDaily
Yeah, I'm not a fan of them dropping the pre-reqs myself given the admission requirements are pretty low to begin with. In fact, I think they should probably split the Econ and Stats pre-reqs into 2 separate classes because that course is mostly Stats with Econ bolted on as an afterthought. I really...

[quote]email the MBA Director[/quote]Just saw this too. What does this even mean? My adviser told me none of the classes, technically, have pre-reqs outside of the 2 foundational course.
