    Average salaries for quants

    COMPARE MSOR (Minor FE) in Cornell vs Columbia MSOR

    I do not know much about Cornells' program, but if it were to be the same with that of Columbia's MSOR (big possibility), I would avoid it. But, thats JUST ME!!! I would try to get into a full fledged MFE/MSMF program.

    COMPARE MSOR (Minor FE) in Cornell vs Columbia MSOR

    By skills I mean proper math/finance knowledge of things. It is a well organized and rigorous program. You will learn a lot (my 2 cents worth)! MSOR seems mis-match of courses taken from different programs.

    COMPARE MSOR (Minor FE) in Cornell vs Columbia MSOR

    Rutgers: Well structured program. Teaching you the skills you need to succeed in the interview Columbia: Huge class size and mis match of classes, but brand name to get interviews. If you can gather the skills, then you will get the job

    COMPARE Rutgers MSMF VS UIUC MFE

    I absolutely understand the distance and Rutgers not being in the top 10, BUT Columbia MSOR is not a good option either. I think you got in NYU. Well, ofcourse that would be the best option.

    COMPARE MSOR (Minor FE) in Cornell vs Columbia MSOR

    Completely agree!!! I think a program should give you the skills you would need. It might be difficult to get an interview initially, but in the end when you get an interview, you will succeed.
