Hi guys,
Professor Smirnov told me that he has recommanded for admission, do you know what does it mean? I'm pretty worried as some of my friends from my school who are also in contact with columbia for the admission process at the MAFN got a phone or skype interview with him.

thanks,

jean paul

It means that you are admitted with a probability (1-e), where e is infinitesimal;) You should be waiting for the GSAS dean approval (by the way who has nothing to do with mathematics- specialized in Romance Languages). In my case, I received my official adm. letter signed by the Dean couple of hours after Pr. Smirnov emailed me saying that he has recommended me for adm.
So, congrats man!

I can confirm you that in my case the official email arrived some days later the Smirnov's one.

Hi..

I got an admit from Columbia MAFN and NYU-Poly...though I do believe that Columbia is a more prestigious brand name...lack of career services at Columbia is making me think twice before accepting my MAFN offer...on the other hand NYU-Poly has a big class size...which I think would be a disadvantage...But I have heard you have full access to the NYU career services there. So I am a little confused. I have accept my MAFN offer by June 25th.

Please suggest.

My Background: Engineer from Indian Institute of Tech - Delhi..Working for Last 3 years..FRM -L1.

Thanks

But I have heard you have full access to the NYU career services there.
It should be noted that NYU-Poly students can only get access to Wasserman which is general career services center available to all NYU students.
They do NOT get access to career services that available to the NYU MSFM students. This won't change in the future.

Ohh...Okay.

Thanks Andy. So Columbia is better choice in your opinion? I am personally inclined towards it. Just a little skeptical due the market situation and the reviews of the career services at MAFN.

Hey guys, this might be a little off topic but I was wondering whether anyone had applied for housing with the University. I have applied in April but haven't got anything from them yet.

Thanks!
