    COMPARE UCLA MFE vs Columbia MSOR

    Going by your logic no one should join any program that's not on QN top 10. Reason it is not there is that it is an Operations research program and not FE program.

    COMPARE Columbia OR vs Baruch MFE

    Its not fair to compare Columbia OR to Baruch specially at QN.. Go outside talk to people and don't be surprised if they answer you what is Baruch... I would not think twice selecting columbia out of the two.

    Columbia MAFN Admissions for the year 2012-2013

    Actually I also sent the same concern to the moderator of that group but he said that it's like Columbia Mafn (joining) 2012 :) ...Definitely on the lines of last year's group ...Columbia University M.A in Mathematical Finance class of 2013 would have been a better option
