My Concerns
I’m from BBA in Business School, so my transcript is full of non-academic, practical courses
Severely lacking math classes


I am pretty aware that I am far away from normal profile, and quite tough application ahead, but would kindly like to know

  1. Around which uni is achievable? Do you have any recommendations for other uni?
  2. Because of my lack of academic and math classes, I am planning to apply for master, and then PhD later. But even master, I’m not sure whether I still have any chance of acceptance…



Thanks in advance.
