    1. Guess you heard from the wrong people. QEM is not mainly for industry. Take a look at the placement, it's all online
    2. It's true that semesters are in different places. However, for people who manage to make an impression, letters are not hard to get. I agree it's hard to make an impression, because many people there are smart though I figured how to do this in my time
    3. At least in my days, QEM mostly funds people who have a pure math or physics etc or math and econ background. Anything else, funding will be hard. This explains your case.

    Good luck as you develop math skills.

    It is not consistent placement record.

    It is way easier to get letters from faculty you know 1-2 years

    Yeah. I wasn't aiming for funding when applying, I've just applied to QEM as a last resort, if I wouldn't be admitted to other schools

    Hey, I saw you mentioned GRE Math here(i think you mean the GRE Math Subject) and just want you to know that I don't think econ adcom cares that much of GRE Math Sub, and to be honest GRE Math Sub has little to do with your actual math knowledge that helps with econ work, but just how fast you can calculate stuff based on Cal 1-3.

    If you are seriously down this path and want to use GRE Math as a signal of math prep, make sure you prepare well. It is not an easy test. Good luck!
