Carnegie Mellon's MBA/MSCF program
I have decided to apply to Carnegie Mellon's MSCF program. Although my long term career goal is to be an entrepreneur. The reality set in when I realized what my MBA loan expenses would be like. I think it would be better if i work for couple of years first and pay off my student loans. I have always had a strong interest in stocks trading. MSCF is a Quant heavy program and my best friend knows several traders in his leading finance firm who were hired through the program. It is definitly something I can appreciate after going through a rigorous engineering program. This will be my last application this year in my quest for higher education.
On another note,
I will be staffed in Asia for next four months (starting in two weeks). I am so glad I will be quitting work in July. Although this should be fun as my wife will accompany me for a month or so on this trip. I can't imagine being out there for four months without family and friends. This trip is going to make everything difficult as I will have a very short time to file taxes and apply for financial aid. It will also make it extremely difficult to interview if I do get those last minute interview invites from NYU or MIT and more recently (cMello MSCF). But at this point the interview part is not worth worrying about. it seems like all the all of the interview invites from MIT and NYU round 1 have gone out already.
