I graduated from college with a 3.5 GPA but because of laziness I got a couple of Bs in some of my math courses. I want to demonstrate to the admissions dept that I can perform well in math classes so I'm thinking about taking some college courses in math. I live in NY and I figure taking some classes at NYU, Columbia or Baruch would be the best bet. But I'm not really sure how to go about doing this. Am I supposed to go through the Continuing education dept or am I allowed to just take any classes they offer? Does it even matter to the admissions dept which school I take these classes at? (it would probably be a lot cheaper to take the classes at CUNY Baruch) Anyone with experience in this have any info??
Thanks.

If a few B's on your UG transcript is the weakest spot in your app, you have nothing to worry about. This is not likely to keep you out. Focus your energy on your essays and presenting a coherent application instead.

Can't help answer your question specifically but you might want to try and really rock the Quant section on the GMAT if you are concerned about their view of your math skills.
