Hi there, this year I've heard more than three times that MFE@Columbia has cut down its targeted class size to 80. How did you get this info?
Besides, I've heard another explanation that every year they set their targeted size to 80 but it eventually became a class of 120 students. Is this true?

Could you please give me a rough number of the students who have found their internships but still display their resume on the official website?
Stuck with the problem now.
2 or 3 maybe? Most people have not updated their Linkedin pages yet. Once you done some research on Linkedin, you won't feel surprised that a few students are still looking for internship. Those students have very limited knowledge and experience about quantitative finance before NYU courant. So I believe it is still a very good program. It seems that students with some relevant experience before are able to secure an internship position during the first semester.

From where did you hear that their target class size is 80?
From the student ambassador and some current students. It seems that the admission committee has told them the class size for 2019 fall will be 80.

Thank you for your share!
Also, I concurred with your opinion that students' experiences and skills are the decisive factor of whether or not they can find internships. Courant shouldn't take the fall for that. However, program's obsession with students' scores on mathematical courses is another story, cos that is why those unemployed students were picked to the program in the first place.

Hi, Even I was communicated this info from a current student studying in MFE program.
