Hey,

I'm also curious to hear the thoughts of people that are going to be attending or applying to MSc programs.

I've been having a very tough time trying to figure out which school that I want to attend; since Oxford has an earlier Round 1 which leads to an earlier result, I'm trying to decide soon since I'm under the impression that earlier applications have a better shot?

I'm applying to MIT, Oxford, LSE, and perhaps UToronto (Since I'm from Canada).

Expected GPA 4.0, Computer Engineering
Expected GMAT 760-800
Little relevant work experience.

Hi,

I was confused between MBA and MFE some time back, but I have made a decision to go for MFE. I am taking my GMAT in August, and will be applying for 14/15 batch. Though my skill set is more suitable for MFE but I was confused because of age factor. I am 27.5 yrs old now.

My profile:
B.Tech., Mechanical Engg. (NIT, India) CGPA- 7.09/10.
Relevant Work Ex - 4 yrs in prop trading firm trading Crude Oil Markets.
Expected GMAT: 720+

Colleges to Apply: Not yet decided.

With a 630 and decent academics you can probably get into most of those schools. I'd probably focus on the programs in cities with the most potential employers.
