As far as I know, Baruch is the only MFE program that has a student forum. Quantnet will reach its 3rd anniversary next month.Antonio said:My name is Antonio.
I am currently a Junior Math major at Albany State University (small school in Albany, GA)
I have a lot of intereste in Financial Engineering and since this is the first online college forum i have come across, i decided to join.
All the tips are here, on Quantnet forum. Take time to read the Prerequisite forum. We took 4 courses during the summer and those prepared us well. Read John Hull. Get all the books we use for the Fall 2006 semester. Take as much C++ as you can.Antonio said:If anyone can point out some tips for applying to Baruch, or any suggestions pertaining to books that i could read and do extra problems in order to be fully prepared - i would really appreciate it.
Not that I know of. Baruch is a public school. MFE is a master program. Those two factors are not made to give lot of scholarships. Do look at the Baruch website from time to time since they may have new scholarships available.Antonio said:Does Baruch have scholarships for International Students ( I am Jamaican).
That does not stop you from doing something about it. Take class at another school, buy books and learn it, intern for free during summer to learn C++,etc.Antonio said:Unfortunately - the programming classes at my institution are done with java.
I doubt they still do C++.
