I was looking at programs like masters finance at u chicago, MIT, Princeton etc as I eventually want to get into trading
I have a decent (but not great) GPA ~3.7 in Engineering, but my math background is lacking. Ive done Mulitvariable calc and dif eq (only 2 courses in college), but never did probability stats or linear algebra.
Does this mean I don't have a chance at these programs? If I work a year or two in a non mathematical heavy financial job (say IB) will this have any relevance in improving my app?
