Hi

I graduated form the indian institute of technology , Kanpur 3 years back with a gpa of 9.2/10 , majoring in civil engineering. I have since been working in a top oil field services company. I also took a Bsc Economics degree for the University of London International programme as an external student at LSE while working. I graduated with first class honours . I now wish to switch over to commodity(energy) trading and wish to apply to MFin at MIT and Msc Finance at LSE for the same reason.

I recently took GMAT and got a score of 790.
Could you please tell me if stand a chance of getting accepted in either of the programmes .Also could you suggest some other programmes that might help me make the career switch. Further more a 9.2/10 may not seem much on scale of 4 (3.68) but the grading policy at IITs is rather harsh and a graduating GPA of 9+ means that you'd be in at least the top 5 in your class. Are the adcoms at top universities aware of this???

Admissions Committees are top U.S. program are very much aware of the grading scale at the IITs. They know that a 9.2 is an exceptional grade average. Your stats are stellar. yes, you are competitive at MIT and any top MiF program.

Best,
Linda
