2022 MFE Admission Roll Call

As admission decisions start to come in, let's get a tradition going here so we can share the programs we applied to, the admits/rejects we received and the program we are ultimately joining.

Hi, @Darth raven. Congratulations on the admits. However, I am a bit confused on why do you plan to join Lehigh when you have an admit from Boston MSMFT? I can see Boston's program is better ranked.
Is your decision based on the scholarship you received from Lehigh?
 
Yes I am an international student and with the scholarship Lehigh is affordable. I just got into BU last week and haven't gotten funding or the official offer yet but I'm not sure I will be able to afford it 🥲
 
Admits: EPFL MFE, Imperial College RMFE
Rejects: University of Oxford Mathematical and Computational Finance
Pending: ETH Zürich Quantitative Finance, LSE Financial Statistics, UCL CompFin
Joining: Still considering
 
Admits: NYU MFE (4K), Cornell MFE(10K), UChicago FINMath (60% Scholarship), CMU MSCF Distinguished Merit Scholarship,

Rejects: -

Joining: Question. What do people think about a non MFE degree like CMU? The data science program is more selective but I will graduate without financial knowledge (I am a CS undergrad)
Both CMU programs are outstanding, it depends on what you want to do in your career.
