As for MAFN, the program starts in early Sep but the orientation starts somewhere around Aug 27th. I reckon it's similar to MFE.I also received the waitlist email but I already made the deposit for another program. I guess I will just wait to see the result and run the process of the other program at the same time. July 8 is really too late. Does anyone know when the semester of Columbia MFE starts because I didn't see any information on the website.
