Hi, sorry I had another question.

Its my understanding that if you haven't taken a lot of quantitative classes in college it might be a good idea to take a few at a local college to demonstrate your proficiency in that area. I know the GMAT also serves this function, but it only does so much.

I only took 2 quantitative classes in college, would it be in my best interest to take a few courses at a local school, or is a high quant score sufficient?

Thanks

Depends on your grades in the quant courses, what the quant courses were, and the reputation of your undergrad school. If you went to a decent school, took relevant courses like Calculus or Statistics and got good grades (A, A-, maybe B+), a solid GMAT quant score should settle any doubts about your quant ability. Unless there are serious issues with your quant courses (bad grade, you took 'Basic Math for Art History Majors', etc.) I would suggest waiting to see how you do on GMAT before deciding whether to spend the money for additional coursework.

Edit: I assumed you were concerned because your current job isn't quant heavy. If your work history is in quant-heavy fields (finance, engineering, consulting, etc.), you shouldn't be real concerned about it.
