  1. I'm not sure if this is an appropriate forum to post this in -- happy to relocate if needed! I'm wondering if anyone has found success with a really great travel or cash-back credit card that they'd like to recommend to another grad student. I am just starting an MA program this fall but thinking about a credit card to open now and continue with throughout my PhD (if accepted -- fingers crossed) and for the next several years. Right now, all I have is a basic secured card I opened during undergrad when I had no credit score. I am debating between a travel card and a cash-back/rewards
  2. Hi all,I have been lurking on the website for a while and this is my first post. I am applying to MPA/MPP/MA in Intl Affairs programs for 2020 fall but now I am a little lost. I am an Intl student who went to a top US uni (top20) and graduated last year. I have been interested in international affairs and politics for a while (was writer for school politics magazine, did research in IR, etc) but eventually I went into investment banking after graduation. I was not particularly into banking but I guess I did not think about my career paths clearly before getting into finance. One year after doi
  3. Seeking out International Finance and Economics (MA), Ryerson University FALL 17 STUDENTS Hi, I applied to International Finance and Economics (MA, F-17), Ryerson University. Lets gather all the applicants under this thread. Share your status! It's been more than a month and I have not yet received any communication from them (apart from GS Acknowledgement). Has anyone heard anything back even from them even in different subject? Moreover, how many students do they enroll in that course and how do i know about my application status?
  4. Hey everyone! I've been admitted both to the Columbia Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences MA program and the University of Washington Evans MPA program. While they are very different programs, I'm very torn about where to go and would like to get some help. I am straight out of undergrad with a Bachelor of Journalism (which means I did not learn much professional knowledge in the business field) and want a career in data/business analyst, finance related after graduated from the program. Prefer to work in the States two or three years (for earning tuition back and raise capit
  5. Is there a thread where we are maintaining MSF or its equivalent business school decisions? Please post a link if we do, otherwise, we should start one, no? I applied to the following schools this session: York (Rejected) Duke (MQM: BA) (awaiting decision) BU (awaiting decision) WUSTL (awaiting decision) Vanderbilt (Rejected) Rochester (Accepted with 60% scholarship) SMU (Accepted - awaiting scholarship decision) Baruch (Will submit application soon)
  6. Hi everyone, I have a Bachelor degree in Law in my country (2014). I intended to switch my career to either Information Technology or Finance in the U.S. However some people suggest me to take an IT concentration that links most to finance so I can balance these two majors. As we all know that IT is extremely wide so I am confused in picking up one concentration liking to finance from the listed below: - Information Assurance; - Computer Forensic Management; - Computer Security Management; - Enterprise Network Management; - Information System Management;
  7. Hi, I need help with deciding if I should do an MSF from Notre Dame. I have almost 10 years of experience in corporate finance/accounting roles. I would have to quit my full time job to do the program. It is a 1 yr program and I can manage it financially. Its just that I am not sure if it makes sense to quit my job and do an MSF. I want to do it for 2 reasons: one, because I personally wish to attain a masters degreee, and second because it seems that to move to manager level positions, I need a masters degree. I also plan to study for my CFA or CPA (not decided on one yet) exams during t
  8. How rigorous and reputed is Stevens Institute of Technology for PhD in Financial Engineering?
  9. Hi! I hold a 2 year SSHRC that pays me well in T4A income. Along with T4 income and my wife's income our household income is large enough for a mortgage. However, I'm aware that most banks etc aren't familiar with SSHRC or guaranteed funding. Have any Canadian grads had success obtaining a mortgage that takes into account SSHRC or other T4A scholarship income? Thanks in advance!

  11. Hi guys, I've been struggling with making the decision between these two programs. I think Utah has a better place from UTD & ASU ranking. Professors are more diversified and the prof/student ratio is lower, but Pittsburgh has a better location and professors there are all doing researches in corporate finance. Pittsburgh also has a better overall reputation, but I think the program is more stressful though, from 2015, it takes all the students 6 years to go to job market. I asked the coordinator and he said it's due to research benefit, I guess it's because they require student

  18. Hi Wassup guys! Happy Friday or (or Happy Day)! I hope everyone is enjoying their day. Its acceptance letter season and I am so glad the applying stage is over. Even more happy that I got accepted into the Fordham, Columbia, and Hunter/Bank Street Program Although I am very excited about the prospects of attending any of these programs, I am leaning towards Columbia. However, I have concerns about the costs and loans. Is there a way to leverage my financial aid packages to lower the costs? Or any other approaches to help me lower the costs and loans? Please let
  19. Hi there, I have been in Canada for almost 6 years. It has been great experience that I got my master degree in Econ from top3, and have been working at a private company in a forecast and risk management role for over 3 years. Maybe it's true that there is a bottleneck after working 3-4 years. And here I am. I have been seriously thinking about if I should further my education in Finance, as my current role is more related to finance, even I do come from a Econ background. And I like research! My master is research based and I did get the chance to write a thesis and presented it in seve
  20. What is the best way to pay for grad school without going too far into debt with loans? I don't have much saved up right now and still hav a couple thousand in loans from undergrad, and now I need to pay tuition and living expenses in a new state. That means plane tickets to come home, too. I'lll definitely get a job, but any sort of help or resources would be great!
  21. I haven's seen a post about AHRC Studentship, yet, so I am starting one. I've checked the results page and I saw that someone got a rejection letter from the AHRC and I was surprised because I thought that they wouldn't notify unsuccessful applicants.
  22. What are your thoughts on Georgetown Masters in Applied Economics program. I plan on applying to the program but have so reservation about the program. Firstly, the lack of information about the program concerns me. On the university's website all you can find is generic information on the program. The career page is non existent and there isn't even a detailed description of the courses offered. I tried a LinkedIn search for alum which was unfruitful. I tried emailing the director of the program and only got the same generic response. Its as if the university does not care about the prog
  23. Is anybody applying to " Master of Science in Finance (MScF)" course at HEC Lausanne course? Need some help on statement of purpose about the theme? Let's use this forum to further discuss the application and admits.
  24. I have just been accepted to the University of Edinburgh (MSc- Environment Culture and Society) and deferred until Fall 2018. I was just wondering if anyone out there has lived in Edinburgh and knows a bit about the cost of living (monthly rent of a flat/university housing), bills, groceries, etc. I have checked Edinburgh's website, however they do not offer much in the way of the actual cost of student housing, just the fact that it is available. My wife and I will be heading over next august and just want to get an idea of how much things typically cost over there (we are from North Carolina
