I am an American computer science undergraduate and a one-year junior master degree. I recently got these two admissions. Going to Goldman Sachs needs to postpone graduation for one semester, so I can only choose one of the two. Purin is the world’s top school and the top master’s degree in finance, but I have seen that in recent years, most students have also gone to work at Quant, an investment bank in New York, and few fresh graduates go to buyer for full-time internships.

The biggest drawback of Goldman Sachs is that it has to postpone graduation for one semester and the return probability of the internship is not certain. It is in the Risk Modeling group. I heard that it is not suitable for changing careers. I wonder if it is possible to adjust if it is converted. It is not the direction of long-term desire to go to the buyer to do Quant Research. Too much in line. Pulin’s disadvantage is that it takes a whole year and a half longer and the opportunity cost of salary, and all the students in the same class are top gods. When the time comes, the pressure to find an internship will be great. I personally feel that I can go directly with my mathematical ability and without a doctorate. The buyer chance is very small, and may not even find a summer internship for Quant at the level of Goldman Sachs. It’s really difficult to decide. I implore friends who are experienced in the industry to help analyze it, thank you!

Brainless Goldman Sachs risk quant. Purin’s MFin is tasteless. For example, which compares Stanford’s icme phd and Purin MFin? It’s easy for icme phd to go to two sigma, de shaw, and citadel. How old is Pulin Mfin? To say it is tasteless, it means that it may be better than other MFEs, but compared to the massive amount of mathematical and physical statistics in North America, the phd is a weak chicken, and it is still difficult to get to the buyer. Therefore, the best way is to go to Goldman Sachs to be a risk. My classmate of the Big Four graduates and went to Goldman Sachs to do risk, and then moved to Millennium to do quant. Striving for a return offer from Goldman Sachs, preparing to change jobs while working, in a relaxed mood, far from studying anxiety. Prin Mfin really can’t help you, a bunch of Prin Phd can’t go to the big buyer, let alone a small master? In addition, if you go to the risk quant of Goldman Sachs, don’t think about going back to your country for private placement. Take a look at the domestic private equity of turtles. The boss was determined not to apply for Pulin MFin back then. Their success was the product of specific historical conditions and had no reference significance. In the past few years, most of the quants returned from overseas were futures, and the capacity of cta was not large, so it took a few more years for the private equity of the turtles. Then a few overseas second- and third-rate stocks returned to China, one with a scale of 100 billion, and one with a scale of 30 billion a year after its establishment. What do you think will happen if the top overseas stock quantification masters return to China?

Risk Intern…If you are neutral and objective, choose Pulin to go in. Take the interview and don’t worry about it. It means that a large basket of opportunities is left with your own ability and interview performance. You have to insist that most of you can’t make it to the buyer or go to the investment bank. Quant is very speechless and has to choose one of a thousand positions and use peers as a benchmark. Isn’t this a contradiction? I gave myself a chance to use it. This can’t be blamed on anyone. Harvard phd is also useless.

The salary of GS Risk Quant is also relatively low in the nine major industries, and most of them are MS, JPM, BAML, which can not be compared with the HF/Prop Shop in the upper middle, and it is only Intern. I am afraid that most people in the Princeton MFin project do not even look at the Full-time position of GS Risk Quant, and it is often easier to go to good buy side companies for internships. Even if the subject thinks that he can’t go directly to the buyer, he will go back 10,000 steps. With the CS background + Princeton bonus, it is almost no difficulty to get an investment bank’s intern offer, and there is a high probability of going to a better group. The bottom line is greater than or equal to GS Risk Quant, and the upper limit can be a buy side, so it is recommended to read books.

Undergraduate and master’s continuous reading, subject of UCLA? The return of gs is still very easy to take, and it is his own person when he enters the door. Our company is really good to interns. In 19 years, MO BO recorded a group of water monsters. Basically, they gave return during the epidemic, and they are also very friendly to international students. However, risk quant is not as broad as FO, and it is a bit farther to jump the buyer. It is recommended that pton mfin is the first choice. Pton’s projects are quite small, unlike the winner takes all such as cmu ucb, as long as you do a job search step by step, you don’t need to worry about the way out. It would be even more ideal if you can go to gs to try the water first half a year after defer enrollment.

Another problem with GS is that the green card is only issued in the last year of H1b. It is not clear whether it is the third or sixth year. I have friends who have to quit after joining GS because of the green card issue. I have heard of cultural toxic. MFin is not just a top buyer. I know a friend who just returned to China to go to a fund. Whether you can enter the top companies depends on the needs of these companies. When the headcount is large, both cats and dogs can enter. When the headcount is small, the garbage companies are not top phd. Luck and timing are very important. Of course, even the lesser-known buyer’s fund may make a lot of money and it is easy to enter. If you are a non-buyer and don’t do it, you can also consider the interests: I had a buyer’s fund offer and finally chose to go to flag.

I remembered a friend of my candidate who worked at Goldman Sachs, a master degree from Carnegie Mellon University, one of the top 985 undergraduates in China, and worked at Goldman Sachs for more than a year. Now I am struggling to return to China for development. The top quantitative private equity cannot get in, ordinary Some people look down on it, and the salary will definitely be greatly reduced when returning to China. It is indeed entangled…

If you don’t want to do risk in the future, I strongly recommend you to go to Purin, or try defer for a year to enroll, and do more internships this year. The reasons are as follows: 1. Goldman Sachs has more opportunities for quant risk intern in the future. If you want to go to the front office, only reading Pulin can satisfy you. If you look at Prin’s previous admissions, you will find that most of them are better than gs quant risk. 2. It is difficult to transfer quant risk to front office, and the longer it is, the more difficult it becomes. Unless there is a possibility of job rotation in the future, such as citi, it will be difficult to get out of this circle. Headhunters will always push you to some risk positions. 3. What’s more, this is just an internship. It may be possible to get a full-time offer. 4. There are more than 20 people in the project. The internal competition is not so fierce. If you calm down and prepare for the interview, you will definitely have a better offer. If the subject has any questions, you can send a private message

I am in BB FO. Highly recommend reading Purin’s project. When you graduate with a computer background and an Mfin background, at least BB quant is guaranteed, not a risk quant. I think the starting point of the first job is very important. You have the opportunity to start from a higher place. Why bother to start with MO for the sake of insurance. In addition, risk quant wages are really low, and I have never heard of easy job-hopping. I suggest you take a look at how LinkedIn the two follow-up options are, or decide for yourself. Come on!

Laxatives, without a doubt, Princeton MFin is the first choice. My undergraduate course in ucla also studied computer like the subject, plus a math double. I can understand the host’s entanglement. The person who can enter the Quant post of Goldman NY Office is not necessarily Princeton MFin, but if you are Princeton MFin, your goal is definitely not Goldman, it should be Citadel, AQR, Millenium, etc. buy-side fund. Or Endowment. These are better than Goldman. This is difficult to get after you go to Goldman, you may not be able to go to Princeton MFin, but the probability is much higher! In addition, the risk group of BB such as Goldman is not the best group in the company, so it is not recommended to go. Of course, it mainly depends on personal ability. I believe that the subject has the ability to get these two offers, and then polished them in Princeton for a year or two, and they can rush to the top buy-side. good luck!

If Goldman Sachs chooses Goldman Sachs for full-time risk quant, but I don’t know how to choose for an internship. Isn’t it the buyer that is math, statistics/operations research, CS/DS is more popular? I don’t know if I should go to Goldman Sachs for an internship. The big buyer MFin is a bit of a taste. Maybe AQR, a diversified investment fund, or a private equity fund like Blackstone, like MFin. They spend money on employment services. Fortunately, Princeton MFin belongs to the Tier 1 STEM project. , May not read Purin MFin and entered Goldman Sachs as a risk. After reading Purin MFin, it can impact Goldman Sachs desk quant/etrading (it has to face the competition of abnormal STEM doctors) or impact the ideal situation such as AQR, MFin GAP one Go for an internship in 2010, and take Return to work for a few years to skip the buyer

The Goldman Sachs Quant internship in New York and Princeton MFin are both coveted opportunities for friends. In fact, there is no need to be too entangled. The master’s degree in Princeton can try to communicate with the school to see if it can DEFER, and then go to Goldman Sachs for an internship. Step by step. If you can directly enter Goldman Sachs for a permanent position after the internship, it is also good to postpone your master’s degree or change to an M7 MBA.
