Highest UG math needed for law school?
I transferred from CC and bypassed College Algebra by taking Intro to Stats. I had Beginner's (B) and Intermediate Algebra (A) before that and got an A in Stats. Will this count against me? Do I absolutely need College Algebra/Calc for law school? I did, however, take Microeconomics and got a B if that helps. My overall GPA is 3.6 and I'm URM (first generation AA Female). Should I take Macroeconomics or College Algebra?

You don't need any undergraduate level math, but a decent understanding of basic econ might be helpful.

You're going to need to have a solid grasp of quantum computation.

Calculus, multivariable calculus, and Linear Algebra are absolute necessities for classes like torts and legal writing....
Just kidding. You should be fine assuming you know simple addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc. Understand of economic principles is probably more valuable than math so macroeconomics is probably a better class to take.

Some professors will want you to be do fairly basic damage calculations for exams. If you can do basic algebra you should be fine.
Not related to law school, but you might want to take another math class for basic life skills. Math comes in handy an awful lot in daytoday life. Not saying you will use basic calculus in a lot of situations, but it comes in handy every once in a while.
