Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I know, I was going to claim my prize on the Grandes Écoles thread, but refrained... I now understand I missed the bit where it was not so much casually dropped as implied that prépa HEC was not math heavy...

well, it is definitely math heavy, but you can still make it into one of the top three Business Grandes Ecoles with a 2/20 score in maths (writing and oral exam)...
Hush, don't tell my boss, I am in the finance business. But as I spent only 4 months (January to end April) in prépa, I had to make choices, so I never opened a maths book. It was heart-breaking by the way. ;)

Sorry I'm only passing through (came to help my mom do some gardening today), so no time for me to structure my comments, just raw info for whoever wants: in HEC we have 13 hours a week (out of 40) of math lessons, and maths represent an average 33% of coefficients at exams => thus maths are still pretty heavy in HEC!
