Profile evaluation - MSc in Management / MSc in Finance [#permalink] New post 27 Mar 2011, 19:14
hi,

could you please evaluate my chances:
1) No work experience. Only a 4 month internship with a non-profit startup
2) taking in october/november 2011, but 700 is achievable
3) a university from Republic of Moldova 2+1 years; average 9.2/10 (Finance and Banking 2008-2012)
exchange student (full scholarship ~$50k): small liberal arts college in USA / 1 year (2010-2011); 4.0 GPA / Dean's List (Business)
4) extensive volunteering experience as project manager and treasurer for youth projects; leadership positions in student government (vice-president) and international club; short teaching assistant experience (less than 2 weeks programs);
6) target progams: pre-experience programs, mainly London Business School - MSc in Management; London School of Economics - MSc in Finance, Stockholm School of Economics - MSc Business and Finance, +1-2 other European schools

debating between applying to Round 1 or Round 2, given the fact I have a GMAT >700
what other schools should I consider, based my picks?
thanks

Hi alexgmd:
this is a slightly difficult question to answer given my familiarity with Masters of science In Finance Programs.
I know that the art is lower for these programs with respect to GMAT score and the diversity of backgrounds represented.
I would first concentrate on getting your GMAT that is at or above the average for each school. You need your for to the statistics published by the school. If you think you can get a 700, for example, as that is the average at a particular school, and if you think you can get it by November, I would apply round one and let them know that you plan on taking it by a particular date.
Other schools that I recommend -- at a high-level -- are schools with Masters in financial engineering programs. I know that Haas and UCLA Anderson have these programs.
I hope this helps.
Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
