just finished my application, but realized that one of my recommenders still hasn't submitted his letter yet :eek:
hopefully it's not a big deal if he turns it in tomorrow or this weekend

I tried to apply this year but can't make a good TOEFL on time. So, I postpone my application to next year and hope I can make it!.

Hope all people here are admitted!!!!

Ha~just has my referee submitted my RL last week, and completed application to Columbia MFE finally. Yesterday, unfortunate to find I has been rejected by Baruch, still feeling sad. Waiting for other news~~~~

Columbia MFE average time to decision is 87 days according to data in our Tracker so you KNOW you will get a decision in early March.
Well, the super high efficiency of Baruch for rejecting me within 20 days really shocks me. Thx, keeping waiting is a tough thing, any way~~~

The average waiting time probably will go down a bit more this year as Columbia MFE streamlines their admission process. That's what they told me last year during the peak of their admission cycle.
It's interesting to look at the average waiting time in our Tracker and see right away which program has a rolling admission which results in much shorter time for result. Baruch MFE, Boston MathFin, Columbia MathFin are 3 examples.

submitted my application almost two weeks ago, i was applying to other programs which had earlier deadlines (Cornel Dec 1, Stanford Dec 6) so I submitted Columbia's application earlier :)
it wouldn't be a bad idea to have similar threads for admissions to other programs... best of luck to all!!

I was bugging one of my profs to submit my LoR soon, but he said that for Columbia, their deadline to submit LoRs is ~ 15 days after our deadline.

Hi~I majored in financial mathematics(math school) in undergraduate study, GPA 89.1/100, GRE 750+590, 2 internship. Actually, the day after I have been rejected, I knew someone who got the chance for interview with a profile that GPA 78/100, GRE about 1200. So, I think these may not really make sense, just have a try.
