  • Hi Andy, what did you say about Stanford coterminal student? Who are they? I am really interested in that program due to personal reasons, and thinking that there might be less competitiveness for jobs since only less than 20 students are admitted every year and many them are looking for PHDs.

    They are Stanford undergrad and PhD students from different department taking the same class as FinMath students. I don't know what the career services there do to help you.
    I know about the course but the fees are quite high for me at this moment. But is it possible for you to recommend a text book or some reading material for self learning?

    Read through the FAQ. There is a list at the bottom with links to online books you can use.
    Hello Andy. I am currently awaiting admission and I am somewhat worried about C++. I studied Java in my first year of University but I really did not undertsand it that well and this experience represents my only experience in computer programming. I would like to teach myself C++ programming in a few months. Can you recommend a text book that could adequately prepare me for a top mfe programme.
    Andy, I am currently on the waiting list of the C++ course. If I am to finish assignment 1 and 2 by the end of March. Is it possible for me to pay and start the course in early Apr? Thanks!

    Yes. we will have more opens in June 1 but we can accommodate if you want to start earlier.
    Hello Andy, I have a question as to whether A Paul Wilmott’s Certificate in Quantitative Finance will be of any help to me to get selected in a good college fr an Msc in Fin Engg ?? Is it worth it or should I just go directly for an Msc ??
    Hi Andy, I am from VN, know about you and the quantnet forum from vietphd, Would you please take some times answer the question I asked in the "conversation" ?

    Thank you very much.
    Hi Andy. I have a question about the C++ course. Im a junior student in US and taking a C++ class right now, and I know how important a great grade in c++ is especially for application of MFE. But my professor is strict and based on his history, he only offer B level. So need I drop his class and take the C++ online certification in Baruch?

    Our course is even stricter. We do not provide grade, just a certificate if you complete it with 70% average or more.

    Thank you Andy! From your perspective, which one is better? Taking the c++ class at shcool and get a fair grade or spending summer on the online class?
    Andy Nguyen
    Andy Nguyen
    Finish the class. If you feel like getting more material important to prepare for MFE programs, you can sign up to start our course in Jun 1.

    LSE asks for GMAT..Your shot @ Warwick depends upon Grades and essays.

    I think something like this has happened before to someone from NY area. Their ISP has some problem with certain websites (IP). This most likely is the case since it seems you have problem connecting via your wifi/modem at home.

    Hi Andy. Thought I should just update you. I wasnt able to connect to the website from my home comp again so I simply switched off and turned the modem back on. And now its working :)
    Hi Andy,

    I was wondering whether you knew if Baruch would consider offering more rounds of the pre-MFE courses, perhaps in the latter half of 2012? Due to time constraints I wouldn't be able to make it at those times, and I'm sure many more people would be interested in taking the courses than the ppl who managed to register by Jan 15.
    Thanks Andy for the tracker.
    If you have time, you could put one's programs on his or her profile, so others could see his status (Admit, Reject,etc) and his preferences (the program he chose) when view his profile.
    That would be another big help.
    Thanks again.
    I believe that it will give a broader view and will better help future candidates to choose their appropriate programs based on their qualifications. You know, some more SQL fields and queries in the database.
    Thanks.
    Hi Andy,
    Is it possible to modify the Tracker so that it shows who applied which programs and get admission from which + some specific fields for one's credentials (GRE,GPA,WORK,TOEFL,GRANTS,etc). Also, the possibility to select or sort results base on the date of submission (an advanced query).

    That's something I would like to provide in the future. Right now, majority of people do not provide enough key stats to make it useful. I'll think of how best to implement this.

    Hi Andy,

    It is really impressing to see the way you help members of this community selflessly. I wanted a small favor from you.
    I was looking for the soft copy of this Quant Interview book by Mark Joshi and tried hard on the net but couldn't find it.
    It is not available in India and shipping would take long.
    Could provide me a copy of it if you have one. Thanks. ASP

    Sorry. I don't know whether a soft copy exists.

    The way admission works is that they will select people to interview. Applicants can't request an interview.
    Hi andy,
    I just received an e-mail from Boston saying that I am in the wait-list for the course of MSMF.
    Can you tell me my chances of getting an admit?
    thanks
    Andy Nguyen
    Andy Nguyen
    They most likely will have to wait until all the admits respond to the offer deadline before they make decision on waitlist.
