Hi All,

I have been working as a quantitative developer (Software engineer working on quant libraries) in J.P Morgan Chase . I am planning to apply for fall 2020 for MFE program. I have an average GPA and score 168 Q, 155 V in GRE. I have a bachelors engineering degree in computer science (so all coursework in math taken) + self studied the math required (Linear Algebra, Advanced Calculus, Real Analysis, etc..)
One of my senior colleague from Quant Research team and senior Business Analyst (ex-trader) agreed to provide me with a LOR
My question is do I stand a chance to get into a decent MFE?
