Are you looking at US MSF programs? If so, you should be able to get into most of the top ones (minus Princeton and MIT). Villanova, WUSTL, Vanderbilt, and Boston College are four examples.

Thank you commdiver for your response. Do you have any more suggestions along the lines of Vanderbilt? I was also thinking of applying to Europe, do you think I have a shot at the top schools despite my 42 score in quant? Thanks again for taking the time to answer!

What was your undergrad degree?

The admissions for the european master degrees require good quant skills, which you have to demonstrate either by a quantitative undergrad degree or/and by a good gmat quant score. Imo the GMAT quant score doesn't really have a lot in common with the math that you will encounter in those degrees, but its really the only fair comparison the admissions have. You have to get a higher quant score(>48) in order to have a chance at good programs in Europe, but it's gonna be tough because your GPA is also a little too low.

In which area would you like to work later?

From what I've read, the common route is to start working in Europe after a degree in Europe, and US banks don't really recruit from European universities. If you'd like to work in London you can either study in the UK at target unis such as Oxford, LSE(try the Accounting & Finance course though), Imperial, Warwick or Cambridge and LBS( which both require work experience), although I think your chances at those schools are not that good, or you could study at universities like Bocconi, SSE, Rotterdam and some other, which also place well in London(from what I've heard). I think you would have way better chances at the latter unis. Relevant internships also increase your chances in those programs.

You would not be eligible for the top European universities because of your GPA. I applied to LBS and LSE, both of which required at least a 3.5 GPA. I got into Villanova, got an interview with Vanderbilt, and got an interview with LBS. I am still waiting to hear back from MIT, WUSTL, and LSE.

You might be borderline with top US programs. Your GPA is below average and your GMAT is either average or slightly above average. If you have the time, I would suggest retaking the GMAT. Good luck!

Thanks for responding. However, where did you get the information that they both require at least 3.5+?


They have it on their websites.
