there is no such thing as a "college accept profile". Universities value diversity and differentiation, and if anything at all, these two factores will help you more than a tailormade/ preconceived profile. So don't think of this process as an assembly line but maintain your individuality.

MFE is a quant heavy course and you would be expected to have performed well in quant courses ( statistics, advanced math, computer languages knowledge) during engineering. Therefore you need to maintain stellar grades during engg. Also, 1oth/ 12th grades do not matter in your application

.

Not clear if this is full time- check individual program requirements about work experience.

For the reasons stated above, about your acads, concentrate on improving them right now. You dont want to focus on GRE at a time when the scores are not needed and spoil your term results in the process.

Move from plan to action- certificates are generally not required. Colleges accept your word as true.
