My response from WSO:

Do the Rochester program over UNC. Rochester is more well known internationally. If you have the math ability, you might want to look into MFE programs. Why not try and do something at the University of Toronto?

Thank you for your reply. I just received an acceptance from UNC, Charlotte to the Ms Mathematical Finance program. Now I am waiting for the admission decision from Rochester and University of Connecticut.
If I do get the acceptance from Rochester, I will definitely choose Rochester over UNC as you have advised me to. I will inform you of the admission developments in the coming days. I hope you will advise me according then. Thank you again!
