I applied to Princeton but didn't get in. However, a girl with a very similar profile was admitted. Economics major from a Russian university, straight from the undergrad program, no FT WE, solid technical skills.

How important is PS for Princeton Mfin?? I have heard for general MFE programs, they don't look at PS much. They mainly focus on technical skills? Any difference for Princeton Mfin

Are you applying again this year? Do you mind sharing your profile?

Hey Ivan, I just checked out the HSE's Econ curriculum. I just wonder, what did you mean by solid technicals? Because all I can see there is couple of Math for Econ, Stochastics, and VBA/SPSS/STATA. Could you elaborate, please?

FT WE - full time work experience

Hi @zeez ,

I have put some details in the attached file. Also, we had more advanced courses in Econometrics, Time Series Analysis and Quantitative Finance during our last year in college. We did not have much exposure to programming though.
