    Math Subject GRE Prep

    Keep in mind the Math subject test will only really help your chances if you do really well on it. Your energies might be better spent getting an 800 on the math half of the general test.

    data type conversion

    You can open the text file with Excel, so that you get the "Text Import Wizard" that lets you specify how the columns are set up, whether fixed width or delimited by some character. Then on the 3rd screen of the wizard, after your columns are divided, you can specify a data type for each...

    This is cool: backtesting baseball

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/30/opinion/30strogatz.html It seems fishy that a such a long hitting streak is as likely as they say, but I guess that's the point. Joe D.'s hitting streak as a "black swan".

    Which class is more useful to you?

    I would take Real Analysis, because Stochastic Processes is covered in the MFE program itself. Real Analysis is not taught as a separate class in this program, but much it is an important foundation of the Probability class, though not a formal prerequisite.

    please advise - PC vs. OSX/PC

    my .02 I have a Mac laptop and I think it's a great way to go, that's what I'd recommend. You really have the best of both worlds since you can run windows so easily. The best way to do that, btw, is Parallels Virtual Desktop, not Boot Camp. Boot Camp requires partitioning your HD and rebooting...

    I would say that flexibility and readability of your code is a much bigger advantage than the runtime performance, at this stage of the game. Fine-tuning performance comes later, the priority now is to be able to understand the code and verify that it produces a correct result. A quote from Don...
