Hi,

I'm preparing for applying 2021 master programs and would like to hear general advice in chance of getting into my ideal programs. My dream programs: Columbia MFE & Math of Finance; NYU MFE & Math of Finance; UCB MFE;

Background:
Math, Econ double major at Top 30 U.S. University
GPA: 3.84 / 4.00
GRE: V162 + Q166 + 4.0 (not prepared well for the quant part. Will retake one later)
Two Summer Interns at the lending department of a commercial bank
Coding: Data structure in Java, Python (Self-study the Python for Finance at QuantNet), Bloomberg Certification, R & STATA in Econometrics, MATLAB

Additional Question:
I enrolled in Stanford to take its Machine Learning course, as a summer visiting student. But due to personal connection reason, I withdraw from the summer program so that there is a 'W' on my Stanford Transcript. Am I required to submit my transcript from Stanford to my graduate applications, since I noticed every program said " Official transcript copies from every post-secondary institution attended "? If I submit it, will it be a downside on my application?
