    JP Morgan Quants Predict World Cup Win 2010 for England

    There are two scenarios that generate criticism: 1) Good players are left out of the squad , but there are good players to offset them. This is inevitable due the reasons mentioned by prof. Stefanica. 2) Good playeres are left out and no one understands why instead of them, not top players...

    NEW MFE Rankings ???

    You said you are willing to help people with a problem. I´m just suggesting the best way to help them to cope with the problem. In this case it is by teaching them how to think and make hard decisions. I respect your views, but for me is not funny and no that useful to see how the worst of the...

    NEW MFE Rankings ???

    By definition, to me at least, a ranking should be universal and it should be very simple to build and understand. Universal means - there is no doubt to anyone how to know who is first, who is second and who is third etc . I don´t know how to define 'simple to build' but it should not depend...

    NEW MFE Rankings ???

    And I just want to write some other opinions that I have and would like to share to whoever might be interested . We usually see all sort of rankings published in the media, ´top 10 places for vacation!' ´top 10 places to work´, ´top 10 restaurants´. This is pure marketing. People need to...

    NEW MFE Rankings ???

    I appreciate your effort and I wish you good luck. I still think that you´re trying to quantify the unquantifiable. I know that the info is available on the internet. My opinion is that is more rational to base my decision using the raw data that you´re using than the output of your algorithm...

    NEW MFE Rankings ???

    First of all, I respect those who were engaged on building those rankings because I am assuming that those were only with good intentions in their hearts. But in my point of view these rankings are somewhat nonsense. Rankings are objective, for example, in sports. You won the game you get 2...

    COMPARE Columbia MSFE vs. NYU MSMF vs. Cornell MFE

    I´m going to Courant. I don´t think that job placement will be a major concern when considering those 3 programs. They all will prepare you very well I´m sure. At the end, when the rubber meet the road, all you need to do is ace at the job interview. Now personally, I already have a masters...

    NYU MSMF NYU Mathematics in Finance!!

    I wonder if by rushing them you tend to get a rejection more easily. I mean, if you´re a crap, then it does not matter. You would get a rejection anyways. But, if you´re on the borderline for admission I think it might be harmful to rush them. They might think something like this "Oh this guys...
