Admits : Boston MathFin with 15k Scholarship, Columbia MAFN
Rejects : /
Pending : Columbia MFE
Joining : Columbia MAFN

Big preference for living in NY that's why I applied to few programs (I was planning to also apply to Chicago and MIT but when I got the letter from Columbia I stopped my applications).

Still waiting some news from the MFE program but at this stage I don't really believe in it haha

Admits: NYU MFE with 8k scholarship, Columbia MAFN, Cornell MFE, UChicago MSFM with 35% scholarship, CMU MSCF, WUSTL MSFQ, MIT MFin, NYU FinMath
Rejects: Princeton MFin, Stanford MS&E
Pending: Columbia MSFE
Joining: Deciding between CMU MSCF and MIT MFin (Glad to hear any suggestions from anyone!!)
my view : CMU's better if you want to improve your programming skills/hard quant skills, MIT is better if you are strong in math/CS and need more finance-related education.
Both are great, don't stress too much !
