What are my chances at these msf programs for next year? [#permalink] New post 24 Mar 2014, 16:58
I am a junior finance major at Penn State with a 3.7 GPA looking to get my Masters in Finance after graduation. What are my chances at universities such as USC, Villanova, Vanderbilt, and Claremont McKenna? I have had a couple of leadership positions and had a boutique Ibanking internship last summer. I will study for the GMATs this summer and would hope to get around a 700. Any insight is much appreciated.

100% at all schools.

PSU is a good and known school
Solid internships
Great GPA and Finance major
Above average GMAT

You'll be fine at every school.

I am applying to the USC Marshall Masters in Finance Program for the program beginning in May of 2015. I am going to be a senior in the fall and have had an internship all summer plus am taking a summer class so I do not really have time to study for the GMATs. USC said that their GMATs are optional, so with a 3.75 GPA do you think that my credentials will be good enough to get in without cramming in the GMATs? Also, I am a Finance Major at PSU with some relevant finance experience through 2 internships. Thank you for your help.

I think their GMAT is "optional" but in reality it is strongly preferred. The admitted students in this years class are pretty impressive. I think PSU is good and your GPA is very good. Internships are positive. I'd still take the GMAT as you will want to have a back up plan in case they don't accept you.
