een00,

Not sure how I missed your post, but my apologies for the delayed reply. Unfortunately, my expertise lies outside of the masters in finance degree, and as I was mentioning to a poster in the past week or so, there are few reliable up-to-date rankings of masters in finance programs. I can say that your profile is quite a distinctive one, which should be a big asset to you when you do apply. If you are only interested in gaining a master's from one of the top-ranked master's in finance programs (e.g., Berkeley) then my sense is that you would probably want to aim for a 700-level GMAT or at least a quantitative score above the 80th percentile (and ideally higher).

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
