Just to give more information of myself to make a better descions. I am a fresh gradaute from a famous university in Asia with GPA 3.5+, majoring in statistics. I did not do very well in some lower-level classes such as Linear Algebra, Calculus and Probability and statistics. (mostly B+, some B). But I achieved an average GPA of 3.82 in my junior year with a lot of As in Upper-level Statistics Courses. For GRE, I got 165 in Verbal and 170 in Quant. I took the gre sub test aiming to make up for those Bs in lower-level mathematical courses with a shining percentile around 90%, but eventually failed because of something I will never use again after preparing for this test, such as Topology.

Many thanks for any advice. I can not appreciate more if there are any current students in good MFE programs that can help me ask this question to the program directors. (especially math-oriented programs, such as Chicago Finmath, Columbia Finmath, and NYU Finmath)
