I am a 2011 Computer Science Graduate(B.Tech) from India from a top 20 school here.
I worked in a small family business of mine after passing out for 10 months. I handled all aspects of this business for this duration.
Then I joined as an analyst in one of the biggest pure play decision sciences firm in the world and have been working for the past 2 years here. I have worked on reporting, dashboarding, business intelligence and statistical analysis for :
-One of the biggest Pharma companies of the US
-the largest health insurance provider in the US
-An auto insurance firm
I have worked extensively on SAS and am SAS certified(base level). I have knowledge of C, Python, SQL, SAS and MS Office extensively.
I am planning to give CFA Level 1 in December.
My GPA in college was 7.6/10
I am taking my GMAT in August.
What are my chances of getting into MIT MFin program?
What should be my target GMAT score?
What are the other best MFin programs which are not too heavy on quant like the MFE programs but still come in the top tier colleges?
Does my work-ex counter my low GPA?
I think MIT is going to be a long shot regardless of GMAT. That being said, to even be in the running I would aim for a 700+. Personally, I would advise you to consider other programs in the US and Europe. Plenty of great offerings and other schools that will be slightly more forgiving of various elements of your application.
