So just speculation at this point, but if I ever go back to school it'd likely be for a Master's in something quantitative. The only problem I have is that I became very interested in math very late in my college career (senior year to be exact) and thus have only take up to Calculus II (and some immaterial derivatives, applied econometrics, and stats classes) and I have little to know programming skills (can and have worked on picking up VBA).
Hypothetically if I wanted to go back for an MFE or equivalent, what would be the best way of doing so? I've thought about enrolling in non-degree courses so that I can earn the baseline prerequisites such as linear algebra, more calc/diff equations, and probability, but honestly am not keen on taking out any more loans and dealing with all the admin BS that comes with it. Would it be sufficient to say... take some open courseware classes from MIT and then try to take a competency exam? (Also do well on GRE, etc.)
I will admit, that maybe I'm just not cut out for it. Looking at NYU's program and student roster, most of their resumes are pretty impressive in regards to math.
Again, this is all speculative, but any advice would be greatly appreciated from anyone knowledgeable!
