Hey everyone!

So glad to see you guys here chatting all about going MSOR at Columbia and housing issues. I also got into the program and have paid $2500 to enroll in Fall 2011.
I am graduating this May with BS in Mathematics and Statistics and minor in Actuarial Science in Miami University. BTW, I am an international student from China. I am new to this area and just have taken 2 intro courses on the topic of operation research (stochastic process and deterministic modeling). I found both quite interesting.

With respect to housing, there is an "international house" for graduate students which is also very close to campus. I am going to visit NYC after my graduation ceremony and try to check it out.

Thanks! I took stochastic modeling in fall 2010 and currently taking deterministic modeling in this semester, both from computer science department.

The professor used the same book for both courses : "Operations Research: Applications and Algorithms", W. A. Winston, 4th Edition, Thomson, 2004. The topics in the courses covered several chapters in the book. It is a quite great book with clear examples and texture, though it is very expensive.

ishant,

The topic has been discussed many times on qnet. Do a search, and I am sure you can come up with some answers to your question.

Forza i have read them but i want to know the present trend. You are there you can tell us is it improving or in stagnant stage. I have got mixed impression by reading them and people also don't have a good opinion whom i have talked with.
