Hey, has anyone applied the early decision (ddl - 10/15/2014) for the QCF 2015 fall program?

Any idea about when I can get admission status?

Also, if you have time, would you kindly evaluate my chances of getting into this QCF early decision program?

Hi Quants
Can anyone shed some light on Boston MSF and Gatech QCF from the perspective of placements and reputation.
And does anyone have any idea that after how many days post the interview from the Adcom does one get final decision from Boston University and Gatech QCF ??
Please do the needful ..

I think QCF is more focused on coding while MSMF is more focused on math.
Just my 2 cents.
Have you heard from GaTech yet?
 
I received email today to submit my video responses to 3 interview questions by end of this week. Would this be all or will there be another round of live interview? Anyone?
 
No news for another week. Do they even do "silent rejection" in the first round? Anyone got any news?
You can check on the status on the website. If it says "to dept for review" then you are still under consideration.
In my case GA Tech sent me email last week asking me to submit video responses to 3 interview questions. Completed my video interviews and sent on 9th and now anxiously awaiting result!

Thx for ur info! It just drives me anxious. The status on the website is also "to dept for review" for people who get waitlist, so do I. I'm just thinking that, they said the results would be out at the beginning of December, which has already past.
