    So why are you spamming threads with this information? Why help her? Do you know her? Are you really her? What is the deal? Do you think people are really going to care after seeing this every where?

    What is the point of this post? Why are you recommending her? Who are you recommending her to? (Just some random people on Quant net)

    Ph.D in Pure Math or Masters in Quantitative Finance?

    Depends on what you want to do. Cryptology then Florida Atlantic University Mining type fields Colorado School of Mines There are schools for Applied Math geared towards Biology, Cosmology, Fluid Mechanics, etc. You should find what you like and look for those schools that do that.

    Ph.D in Pure Math or Masters in Quantitative Finance?

    Applied Math should be the other choice not Pure.

    Going back to Undergraduate Math?

    I understand that. Read post 5 and 14 so you have the full idea of why that was said.

    Going back to Undergraduate Math?

    I know students who passed the AP BC and failed the Calc 1 tests.

    Going back to Undergraduate Math?

    I am a TA for Calc 1. College based Calc isn't the same as HS based Calc. I see students who scored high enough to go into Calc 2 or 3 fail tests in Calc 1. I know that at Cornell Calc 3 or maybe it was 2 is integrated with DE so it is at a very fast pace. With that being said, I really think it...

    Quant finance straight from undergrad?

    What do you consider financial math? I have a BS in Finance and Math. However, I wouldn't say any math I learned in finance would go anywhere. A PhD in Finance requires, in general, that the student have taken Cal 1-3, Linear Alg, and maybe another course or two. A degree in quant finance...

    Quant finance straight from undergrad?

    I don't think Finance or Financial Econ will prepare you for Quant work. I don't see those 2 helping you.

    Quant finance straight from undergrad?

    Then get a PhD in Applied Math, Computer Science, Physics, EE, etc. Then you will have the skills to enter Quant Finance, you will general receive a free education, and if you think it is crap, you will be able to do something else.

    Need help! Economics student apply for mfe

    If this individual obtains a scaled score of 700 or higher, they should just apply for a PhD in Math. Here is the practice book: http://www.ets.org/Media/Tests/GRE/pdf/gre_0809_math_practice_book.pdf The actually test isn't this easy (you may not call this easy though).
