Facts, not hype.

And you are insulting a lot of talented students and their hard work and dedication which is inexcusable.
Dan, let me start off by saying you're probably the best director in these financial engineering programs. I wish my program's director was like you. You really work to help your students get the best jobs possible. But these self promotions look desperate. Leave it for others to talk about praise Baruch. Don't throw this info at us.

If you think top BBs are going to hire Baruch over HYP. Try harder.
Point of an MFE is to do quant work -- most HYP undergrad wouldn't be as good at quant as MFE. Also, if the role is trading related and there is a group of candidates like the Baruch students who spent a lot of time modeling and researching for a trading competition and won, that looks pretty good. Shows that they're passionate about it and were able to reverse engineer certain rules, even if it's simulated. Not sure what your problem is that makes you so condescending here.
