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
I got accepted into Columbia's MFE but I am still waiting on MIT to release decisions. I gotta secure my place by March 5 and MIT is going to release decisions by March 14th and refused to give me an early decision. Should I ask Columbia for an extension?
Hello, Andy. I want to purchase the c++ course. And I think I’ve complete the payment and the bank's system showed the money has been paid. But the website went wrong. Now I am not sure whether I purchase the course successfully. Could you check that for me ? And how can I start the course? Thanks a lot.
I am a student at Columbia ( MSOR) . I was interested into quantitative finance but now i would like to switch over to Big Data. Ihave completed core courses (stochastic, regression models, intro to FE). I am taking spring courses Machine Learning (R) , Applied Data Science (Python) , Analysis of Algorithms, Intro to Databases
hey Andy, i got into university of michigan's MFE program and I'm quite very likely to get into university of Washington St louis MSF Qtrack as well. Could you give me some suggestions about choosing between them? Thanks
Hi Andy, I have been reading your comments in forums for months and I am very impressed about your knowledge in this field. I am a PhD in Applied Mathematics and an early stage Assistant Professor in Applied Mathematics with strong programming knowledge in Matlab and C++. My goal is to become a Quant. I was wondering what would be your suggestion for the simplest way to achieve this goal.
Hi Andy. I talked to you before about the C++ programming course offered on this website. I am now ready to commit myself to this course. And I have pre-registered. Do you think I can get enrolled anytime soon? Or I have to finish level 1 and level 2 first?
Hi Andy, I am a undergraduate stuent who is going to declare a major. I am interested in finance, physics, and math. My dream job is working as a quant. I am not sure if going to business school of USC or UCBerkerley and double major in math is a good choice. I can also take six computer classes to get a computer science minor. Or do you think getting a C++ certificate during or after education is enough. Thank you!

Hi Sir, I saw that you had posted a message about an Excel/C# newsreader. I had a similar idea. Is there any way that could get that Excel code from you so that I dont have to write my own code? Thanks,
