Columbia CVN MSOR Methods in Finance: non-degree start

Hi all

I have read - I think - all threads here about CVN MSOR Methods in Finance. Is there anyone who is in/has graduated from the program with some insight on starting as a non-degree student? It is clear that doing well in courses as a non-degree student does not guarantee admission to the masters program, but in practice how much does this weigh? If I do very well in a few courses (and meet all admission criteria), are my chances of admission much improved, or does it not make so much of a difference?

I am asking because the courses are expensive and unless taking them improves my chances of admission significantly, I would rather apply to a less competitive program.

Hello everyone, I am enrolled in the financial engineering certificate program and i need some help with the formulas and solving problems. Please direct me.
