Yeah I agree that my original post is a long mess. I agree with all your advice. I’ll figure out what to do and will let you guys know.
He/she did list them: "Introduction to Statistics, University Algebra (not linear algebra), Pre-Calculus, Calculus 1", with a B in Calculus 1.
At this forum we usually classify these as high-school level courses. Typically econ applicants begin their undergrad-level math with Calculus 3 or Linear Algebra, then proceed with an analysis or advanced-calculus course in their sophomore or junior year. If you have not taken Calculus 3 or Linear Algebra yet, then it's extremely difficult to predict whether you'll do well in real analysis, complex analysis and abstract algebra (which should be among the 8 courses you mentioned). These advanced courses tend to rely on proof heavy, abstract work for problem sets, which is highly distinct from the computation-heavy work required for university algebra/pre-calculus.
In short, I don't think you should be confident that you'll do well in that set of 8 math courses as a part-time student. You'll likely need to spend much more time than you expect, and that will conflict with your work. Either reduce the load by removing a few courses, or spread it out, or quit the job and take those courses full-time.
