Hi,

I am an Economics major from Europe, my goal is to become a quant. I was wondering if you guys could rate my profile since I am not too confident about my math background and maybe give advice on extra courses I should follow.

Top 20 European Union School

GPA 4.00/4.00

All relevant courses I have taken:

Calculus 1 (Math Department) A+

Calculus 2 (Math Department) A+

Linear Algebra (Math Department) A

Sets and Combinatorics (Math Department) A

Probability Theory (Math Department) A

Probability and Statistics for Econometrics (Math Department) A+

Econometrics (Economics Department) A

Introduction to Econometrics (Economics Department) A

Programming 1 (Programming in C) A+

Programming 2 (Python) A

Mathematics 1 for Economics (Economics Department) A+

Mathematics 2 for Economics (Economics Department) A+

Statistics 1 for Economics (Economics Department) A+

Statistics 2 for Economics (Economics Department) A+

I have not been able to take a specific Multivariable Calculus course, and I do not have any time left to take one. However, a significant portion of ''Mathematics 1 and 2 for Economics'' included basic multivariable calculus (I do not know if this makes any difference).

Target Schools:

Cornell FE

CMU CompFin

Columbia MFE

NYU MFE

MIT MFin

What do you guys think? Do I have any chance or am I too ambitious?
