A little bit out of subject, have you ever wondered about the similarities between waiting for a decision you want and having a crush? For example: you find yourself thinking about the girl/university, the hurt of the rejection, stuff like that. lol

Wow, I finally got in! I'm happy on one hand, but not sure what to do now.
I accepted BU offer and feel like I've come too far with BU.

BU MSMF vs Columbia MAFN, where should I go?
I think BU has friendlier environment and takes care of their students very well. But, Columbia's big name is quite irresistible............
Congrats man!......if you are a fresher with not much we ...go to Boston....ivy league degree u can get later on as well.if u r experienced and considering it it terminal degree for a long period go for columbia mafn

Well, I don't have any experience. But, I think Columbia will give me broader opportunities, I think. And, both BU and MAFN are more math-focused curriculum which I like. And, Columbia has rock solid program as well. I just like BU because they are more welcoming.
Mist honestly it's up to u.so did u receive a mail from gsas or director.by when do u have to reply.my only concern with mafn is that it is going much about doing things on your own.if u have no programming background, u won't improve much and that won't help you getting placed

I care about Columbia brand because it seems like financial industry cares quite a bit about where people studied.

I vote for Columbia as well.

Mist, I´m sure you will choose Columbia. You like it better and feel is a better choice for life. You just are taking your time taking the decision because it "hurts" to reject a program that you like and you feel it likes you back. (again with the crush/masters programs metaphor).

Anyone knows the person who got admitted to Columbia Mathfin latest? He/she updated the tracker application today (above UCB app). Inbox me if anyone does.
