How important is a class in C++ vs. comp sci classes in other languages for MFE admission? I intended to be a CS major my freshman year (now econ), so I have a few Java programming classes under my belt, including an Algorithms & Data Structures class. Though I haven't programmed in a while (I'm going to be a junior in the fall), I was a solid at Java and could probably pick up C++ on my own. Alternatively, since I don't have much room in my schedule, I could take an "Intro C++ class," but that would mean I can't take numerical analysis. Is it worth the tradeoff?
