I am a non-traditional student interested in entering a graduate program in statistics or applied mathematics (to study probability / complex systems modeling). I have an undergraduate degree in a liberal arts subject - little to no technical coursework.
My question comes in two parts:
If I self-study and score well (90%+) on the GRE Math Subject Test, would I be able to take advanced undergraduate courses as a non-degree student with prerequisites waived?
Would your typical graduate program consider a student with only advanced courses but not the "basics" (calc, linear algebra, etc.)?
Certain life restraints (financial, geographical and existential) make it difficult for me to go back and take the classes.
Thanks in advance.
