My GMAT score is decent, but my quant score is on the low side.
680 Q42 (66%), V40 (91%) Total (90%)
The rest of my application is strong (3.89 gpa, good work exp etc). I plan to take a few quant classes (statistics for management, calculus for business). Do I have a shot with the additional quant classes or do I need to bite the bullet and retake the GMAT?

I am targeting Stern and CBS.

Thanks

btw- I have your book and itâ€™s great!

Glad you are enjoying the book.

What is your degree in? What does your work experience consist of?

Yes, you have a shot, especially with the additional classes.

If this was the first time you took the exam and are confident you could do better on, then it wouldn't hurt to give another go, but know that you'd still have a shot without retaking it.

- BS in Telecommunications w/ a minor in Business (3.89 gpa from a local school)
- I work for an IB in an eCommerce business role. I manage a major client facing website as well as technology and client support teams. Also do work around usage analysis, business requirements, website viability financial analysis, marketing, and training.
- My previous role was more technical w/ software testing and coding experience.
I think that my work experience is unique in that I work for an IB, but not in a typical role. At 25 I have a great deal of responsibility and have progressed quickly.

It was actually my 2nd attempt. I got a 650 on the first attempt w/ a slightly higher quant score (72%). I simply managed my time poorly on the 2nd attempt spending much too much time on a few hard quant questions. So I do think I could do better - but I took the test back in 03 so would like to avoid the pain of preparing again if possible.

Planning on taking the following courses at NYUâ€™s School of Continuing and Professional Studies:
Statistics for Management I
and maybe some more finance specific courses.
Does it matter that these are certificate courses and don't count for credits?

Thanks for the additional information. Based on this, I'm more inclined to argue against taking the GMAT again.

You have quant threaded throughout your background and the extra classes will really help prove your commitment. The fact that they're at NYU should be more than enough -- shouldn't be an issue that these are certificate courses.

just to expand on this what are your thoughts of a similar quant score but ug transcript is all A's in quant material (finance Major)? Would the extra classes do anything to improve your standing in the adcomm's mind?

Assuming that as a finance major you took business courses such as Accounting, statistics, and economics and received A's in those courses, then no taking them again won't do you much good.
