I’m looking at my grad school’s evaluation of my undergraduate transcript and their assessment of what prerequisites I need to take before beginning coursework for my degree. There are three classes I need to take that I knew I’d have to, and I’m fine with that.
But they want for me to take a semester of “college algebra” (scare quotes mine). I didn’t take college algebra in college… because I took it in high school. Should I really be punished for completing a rigorous course of study prior to college? No, no I should not.
