Master of Finance Profile Evaluation [#permalink] New post 27 Apr 2013, 11:54
Hello everyone,
I am a last year banking major student at a non-target Turkish university. Having scored 314 (Q:160, V:154, AWA:3.5) in GRE and 102 in TOEFL IBT, I thought I should take my chances and apply to some top Master of Finance programs, such as LSE and University of Toronto (the latter is not a top one though). Yet, obviously I was rejected, mostly because of my non-target university profile and relatively low GPA (3.03). I am planning to work for a year in one of the big four upon graduation and apply with some top Master of Finance/ Financial Economics programs next year. It goes without saying that I will be retaking the TOEFL IBT and GRE to improve my scores, and, hopefully, to get a 165+ in GRE Quant. I am also planning to sit CFA L1 in december 2013. Do you people thing I would have a shot with schools like LSE, Oxford, Princeton, HEC Paris or LBS? Any kind of advice would be so much appreciated.
As for the extra-curricular side of my profile, I have attended a student exchange program (Erasmus- Famous in Europe) and a 5 weeks Volunteer Project (Teaching English to kids in Ukraine).
Finally, I had an accounting internship at a small firm which, I guess, is the weakest part of my application, along with my GPA, of course.
By the way, I am going into that much trouble because I would like to break into Investment Banking.
