I can't see how they'd view it as anything but positive.
Is anyone taking classes after undergrad? I did not realize how mathematical the field of economics was until my senior year and unfortunately did not therefore take many classes. I have since graduated from a top 30 university and gone on to take a couple classes at george mason university in dc while working full time and got an A+ in both of them (probability theory and intro to proofs). does anyone know how an admissions committee might view this?
If you're referring to the ranking of the economics department, I can't see the relevance of that to courses you've taken in the math department. I see that George Mason's undergrad program is considered "selective" (by U.S. News & World Reports), so I can't see taking classes there versus another school making an appreciable difference on the margin unless George Mason is well-known for grade inflation.
I agree with buckykatt--it's not all that helpful to look at econ program rankings to evaluate the quality of a math class. And sure, GMU is no Harvard, but that grade would probably be considered comparable to an A in a math course taken just about anywhere.
Regardless, unless you plan on entering a highly selective math graduate program, you took them at about the best place you could, and did as well as you could have. There are other things you're more justified in worrying about than this, I'm sure.
