My name is Tung Phan and I'm a 3rd PhD student in Stat at the Wharton School. I'm looking for a summer internship. I found your posts very helpful and instructive. From your experience, what are the good firms to intern for? We can also exchange thoughts via email. Mine is email@example.com. Thank you man!
I have just enrolled in the C++ program and because I have little experience in C++, I feel difficulties in the first two levels.
Could you please change the enrollment date to a later time(like today) or is it better for me to cancel the enrollment now and come back after I get myself ready for the program? Thank you!
Hi Andy, I want to do the C++ certificate that Quantnet offers and am just wondering when would be the next possible time to enroll? I noticed that you mentioned that during the 1st and 15th of every month one will be able to enroll, however, is this still the case? Thanks
I have taken two online courses data analysis(in R) and algorithm (a little Java and C). But many schools still don't put on any weights on them during my application.
Any idea and suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Andy.
My BG: B.S. in Eco & MS in Finance. 4 years of W/E in Commercial Banking ( a little quantitative about risk hedging and structured products). For me, finance and math is not a problem. Statistics is also practiced and learned in school. But programming is really my drawback. My lack in Math is advanced prob and PDE.
Andy, I am avid in getting access into one of the MFE/MSQF programs because I want to switch to this area. Being rejected by a few programs this year with reasons of 1. No programming exposure, 2. Not enough maths, I wonder what can I do to make me more qualified in order to apply next year. (I have to do it right now, just a few months left).
I have a GRE score of 320 / toefl score of 109 / 1 year software job experience and fairly well extra curricular profile.
I have applied to Rutgers , Courant , Baruch ,NYU-Poly ,IIT .
However I also want to have a go at the european universities. I tried to search for rankings on european colleges but couldnt find anything substantial.
Which unis will be good from the point of view of placement ?
I dont understand why they saw my transcript and suggest about this program. Would you mind to tell me basic about subject: Financial Engineering. Is this suitable for a girl, and is it difficult for person who dont study a lot of maths to study?
Thanks a lot and hope to see your reply.
Hi, Andy. I am applying PhD scholarship. University said that they are very excited if i apply PhD Financial Engineering. I had background for finance with BSc Banking and Finance and Master in financial management in London. Actually, i didnt study subjects in maths in university(GRE OR GMAT... I HAVE NEVER KNOWN IT). But I think i am not too bad about maths when i was in high school.
Hi Andy, I'm Aerospace Engineering student at Purdue. I'm thinking of changing my major to MFE, should I take stats course first? I know MFE in purdue is not that good, would it be better if I get a master degree from MFE in purdue then apply for PhD degree for a better program? THX so much!
GRE: 1270 (770, 500), TOEFL: 108, GPA: 6.52/10 (3.3/4), Work Exp: 2 years by this June with a Financial Services Company in India. Math grades aren't so great but work exp is relevant. Could you kindly let me know my chances of being accepted at MS OR Columbia?
Andy, I have a quick question
I was hoping to enhance my c++ abilities prior to enrollment at Uchicago this fall. I plan to start the C++ course that Baruch offers after I take the CFA Lv1 test in June. Will I be able to start the course right away maybe on the 10th of June. Will it be just like I pay tuition on maybe June 5th and then boom I get to start on the 10th? Hope to hear from you soon
