Columbia MAFN Columbia MAFN 2021

I recently got an offer from Columbia MAFN and I am waiting on Columbia MFE (most likely an L tbh). For those of you going to Columbia MAFN how are you funding it (especially international students)? I am in desperate need of some tips. I am an undergraduate studying BSc Maths and Econ at LSE.

Thank you!

I did stumble across Prodigy finance couple of weeks ago. I've seen some mixed reviews about prodigy finance. What is your opinion on them?

I know friends who have taken loans from prodigy and they had a hassle free experience - both in getting the loan and in repaying it. Rates may sometimes seem high in comparison to banks but most people end up repaying within 3-4 years after graduation (prodigy doesn't charge anything for early repayments). So, it didn't matter too much in the end. Also, the USP for prodigy is the requirement, or lack there of, of cosigner and collateral. That is a huge problem for most people when funding education in the US, given the large sums involved.

But you should definitely do your own research and choose whatever suits your needs best.

I am currently in the middle of doing my research. Thank you for your opinion.
