Go to Russian, be anti-Russian and then you will realize what witch hunt is. Russians will make sure that you do not see the...

    US College closes oversea MBA program due to rampant cheating

    Blanket statements like these based on "experience" just shows immaturity in my opinion. I come here to enrich myself from education and experience of people all over the world and this is what I get to read. Should we allow these racist rants on an educational forum like this? How was...

    UCB MFE UCB MFE numbers for 2010 - Fake and Unethical?

    There are a couple of points I would like to make here: (1) From my perspective your arguments are as good as the arguments of original poster of the UCB fake salary article. He talked from his experience and you talk from yours. My lesson from this thread is not that UCB is 100% fake as...

    UCB MFE UCB MFE numbers for 2010 - Fake and Unethical?

    I do not understand why people do not encourage current students to come out and speak the truth about the program they are attending, instead of bashing them for speaking up. I guess this is the reason that people do not want to come out in open and we are left wondering about the veracity of...

    Sharing admission essays

    I have gotten through into all top schools for MFE. So, some of my friends have started asking me for my essays. My question is: (1) Is it okay to share my admission essays? I am sure they are going to copy from my essay. If they do, will I be in trouble? (Off-course they will, for...

    Lying on your CV

    Reminds me of a guy I used to work with at my last job originally from Romania who would always blame the financial engineers and richer people for making money and creating problems for the rest of the world. On street while I admired expensive cars he would always sneer at them. All he wanted...

    2009 Quantnet Ranking of Financial Engineering (MFE), Quantitative Finance Programs

    Duh! Why won't CMU and Princeton show this ranking on their website? I will see the strength of your ranking if UCB, NYU, Cornell breeds put your ranking on their website. They won't as they know this ranking is bogus. Common since when did community colleges start to stand in the same line as...

    number of CMU graduate

    I guess CMU guys are not having too many opportunities these days. I bet many of them are questioning their 100k contribution to the program. Don't know why CMU is so expensive even though they are not the top ranked program.

    Hope for a future democratic China

    In case of Stockholm Syndrome, a person is forced to do what the captors have required them to do. If they do what they are asked to do, everything is hunky dory and there will probably be rewards, etc. Similarly, in case of China, the citizens do not have a choice. They have to do what the...
