    COMPARE Quantitative Finance in University of Waterloo and Toronto??

    Subhasishs Although I am no expert, McMaster programs is newer, smaller (meaning fewer alumni) and overall the school has less prestige than that of U of T or Waterloo. They use the same textbook as U of T for stochastic calculus (although I think most schools use Shreve) so you will probably...

    CFA Level I

    you receive a mark of x<50% , 50%<x<70%, or x>70% for each section...it would not be a stretch to assume that if you received a mark of 70% (therefore in the highest marking bracket) on every section you would pass..that being said dont worry what the passing mark is and just do the best you...

    COMPARE Quantitative Finance in University of Waterloo and Toronto??

    YuZhao, I was recently one of the later admits to U of T so if you use my profile (which you can view through my previous posts) as a minimum you should be in the clear. Keep in mind that it appears to become more competitive every year. I did not apply to Waterloo (or anywhere else, risky eh?)...

    Haha prepare for quizzes on top of writing an exam the day before and 2 hours after the interview should be a challenge. You think just generally math quizes on the pre-req courses?

    I was requested for another phone interview this Friday with one of their PHD students Ryan Donnelly. From what I gather I am either a unique case or this is a new process. I feel this interview is going to be a little tougher than the first haha. You guys have already helped me a ton, but if...

    Just finished my phone interview with Shari. It went really well and was 10 minutes as Dibbs mentioned before. I only gave myself a 3.5/5 for programming knowledge hopefully honesty/modesty pays off. Other than that hopefully I get in and can join on the Toronto meet up!

    Toronto MathFin Has anyone heard from UofT MMF?

    @tinto I got a request for a phone interview Wednesday, I am from Nova Scotia, Canada. Anyone have some advice for this interview? From previous threads it seems phone interviews are not too long and questions can be candidate specific....anyone else here anything!?

    In-Major GPA or Overall GPA

    I don't share the same optimism unfortunately because my gpa would take a massive hit if normalize. You only need an 85% plus to get an A+ at St.FX, so on a gpa scale where 95% is A+ my gpa would drop significantly. However, getting a 95% is practically unheard of at St.FX so I hope that will be...

    In-Major GPA or Overall GPA

    In-Major GPA or Overall GPA

    yea i would have to agree, nobody wants to hire a robot like so many people become in quantitative fields, but does anyone know how GPA's are looked at? on most "standard" gpa scales mine would go down, but technically shouldn't mine stand because you can't compare what the work load is like...

    In-Major GPA or Overall GPA

    kk sweet i was hoping so, but i was also wondering how does your gpa transfer? I know my school (St.FX) gives A+ with a lower avg's than most schools, would an A+ transfer or do schools look at the % and use their own lettering system

    In-Major GPA or Overall GPA

    Hey I know every school's admissions are different but in general how do they weight your in-major gpa compared to your overall gpa. I'm doing honours in math and so far I have an in-major gpa of 3.9 but my overall is only a 3.5 (which seems to0 low to get into MFE). I really hope they focus on...

    Oh yea one other question, I have to write a thesis for honors and was wondering what I should do it on to help get into a MMF program? I'm not too sure the procedure at my school but I think I could write it in my Jr year, would that help on an application so I could show them it while applying?
