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

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 !

What’s the program at University College ? From what I heard it’s a good place.
It's a very generic uni not very famous for anything in particular from what I've heard.
