Hi guys, I have also been offered in MMF. But I think I won't go for it. I have decided to join Waterloo's MQF, which seems more solid(1.5 year), exceptional reputation (first program of this kind in Canada + 100% placement + more flexible positions while MMF only focus on Risk or Model Vetting), and much cheaper. In addition, a few students in MQF can pursue quant PhD in some top universities such as Cornell, Stanford and Berkeley, but MMF cannot do it since knowledge taught in MMF is not deep enough. As you guys know, application procedure in MMF seems very cheap and only have some baby tests. I also thought I have ruined my interview but finally get it. I really do not understand the point of their interview/assessment process.

I guess the point of the interview was clearly not to test communication skills...

Toronto has ridiculous standards to get in. Looking at the tracker your gpa needs to be >3.8 to get into the program.
Also an mmf at u of t is designed for practitioners much like MFEs at other schools. If you want to do a phd it's not the sort of program you want to go to.

Congrats to you too. I actually graduated from waterloo in 2010. I've been working in Barbados since. My interview was done via phone (had no skype access during work hours)
