    Admitted by CMU -- What's the next step??

    - I believe the background check has to be completed before the first day of classes (or something of that sort). Best to email CMU officials and ask.

    Internship Advice

    PS: I actually love using SAS... it is very powerful... but anybody can do SAS... you don't need a CS degree to do SAS... and a few years of C++ developer experience will be much more sexy on the job market than a few years of SAS experience...

    Internship Advice

    I would also go with option # 1... if you can perform really well, there will always be a chance of moving to the trading role. C++/Python developers are also in high demand for HFT firms. On the other hand, SAS job won't be fun in the long run, IMHO.

    MFE after Phd?

    What you have mentioned is correct... But I think you missed the original point to some extent. (S)he is ALREADY doing Ph.D. and will be done soon. It is not that (s)he is deciding between a Ph.D. and MFE. (S)he is asking whether (s)he needs to do MFE *after* completing the Ph.D. in Fin. Math...

    MFE after Phd?

    Precisely!!! So bubblegum... I really doubt you would need an MFE degree after Fin Math Ph.D. ... to better evaluate the situation, however, apply for jobs and see what kind of response you get... make sure you finish "Heard on the Street", Mark Joshi, etc...

    Who uses Latex?

    1) LaTex is much better than Word and Word add-ons; especially when you have to write a lot of equations... 2) In theoretical physics... I do not know a single person (under the age of 60) who uses Word to write papers/Thesis...
