    COMPARE Quantitative Finance in University of Waterloo and Toronto??

    Subhasishs Although I am no expert, McMaster programs is newer, smaller (meaning fewer alumni) and overall the school has less prestige than that of U of T or Waterloo. They use the same textbook as U of T for stochastic calculus (although I think most schools use Shreve) so you will probably...

    Toronto MathFin U of Toronto MMF Question

    Just finished my phone interview with Shari. It went really well and was 10 minutes as Dibbs mentioned before. I only gave myself a 3.5/5 for programming knowledge hopefully honesty/modesty pays off. Other than that hopefully I get in and can join on the Toronto meet up!

    Toronto MathFin Has anyone heard from UofT MMF?

    @tinto I got a request for a phone interview Wednesday, I am from Nova Scotia, Canada. Anyone have some advice for this interview? From previous threads it seems phone interviews are not too long and questions can be candidate specific....anyone else here anything!?
