MS Fin. Profile Evaluation (am I dreaming?) [#permalink] New post 11 Jan 2012, 21:51
Well here it is, bad decisions and a little bad luck resulted in me getting a pretty low GPA (thinking I will finish my Bachelors in Finance with about 7/10) which is why I am seeking suggestions.

I had always wanted to go to HEC Paris but at this point, I am doubting it is even possible, here is my short profile (took the MBA profile evaluation template to try and make this as brief yet complete as possible):

1) No full time work experience.
2) GMAT has not been done yet, I plan on finishing my degree before starting to study for it, want to make sure I do as good as I possibly can (would expect ~700)
3) University of Ottawa Bachelors degree in Finance, expected GPA ~7 on 10. Graduating end of summer 2012.
4) I am not sure if this is significant but as a full time summer job, I worked at a medical clinic where I helped redesign and implement a new file system (replacing paper files by computer files).
5) Plan on doing CFA certifications (1 and 2 for now since I have no work experience).

Looking at the above information, do I even have a shot at programs from HEC Paris and such or not, if not, is there anything I can do in order to increase my chances significantly.

Thanks in advance and do not hesitate to let me know if I forgot any information pertinent to the evaluation of my profile.
