Hi Mr. Stefanica, I wanted to register for one of NLA or the Probability pre-MFE course.

Is it okay if I declare my interest in both when I send the email and if I get a seat in both the courses, can I back out of one later?

When you apply, let us know that you want to take one (not both) seminars and ask for our opinion on which seminar would be most beneficial for you to take.

Hi, Mr. Stefanica. I wonder if I complete one seminar without distinction, will it be a deduction for Baruch MFE application? These seminars are all very challenging.
 
Completing the seminars is an achievement in itself, so it increases the strength of your application. Good luck!
