Hi Linda,

Thanks a lot for your reply! Can you elaborate more on the school selection you have suggested? Why these particular schools and not others?

The programs I suggested are all strong in finance and they are strongly international. You have excellent stats, distinctive and impressive work experience, and good extras, so I thought you would be competitive. I realize these are tough schools to get into. However, considing your relative youth, I would say this year aim high. If you don't succeed try again the following year with lower ranked programs.

Regards,
Linda
