QUANTITATIVE TRACK POLICIES
This track is offered to students on a Full-Time basis only. After completion of the first year of the Track, students could spend the summer doing an internship which, if successful, could continue in the fall semester of their second year.

COMMUNITY SERVICE REQUIREMENT
The Carroll School is committed to instilling a strong sense of community service in its students. In an effort to align this commitment with the program, all MSF students must complete 10 hours of service to others through meaningful work as volunteers.
