What are my chances of being accepted into these Masters? [#permalink] New post 22 Mar 2014, 18:36
Hi everone,

Having finished my undergraduate degree, I'm currently planning to apply to several Masters in Finance at top schools. However, given that my GPA and GMAT quantitative score are not outstanding, I'm wondering if my chances of being accepted into some of these programs are too low for the application fees and the time/effort required to be worth it.

I'm mostly interested in the following schools:
- LSE
- Imperial College
- HEC Paris
- IE

The most relevant points of my CV are:
- BSc Economics at Nova School of Business and Economics (best Portuguese school), GPA: 15/20, Finance course grade: 18/20
- GMAT score: 700, Q: 47, V: 40
- Internship at Deloitte in the area of Corporate Finance (starting in April)
- 5 months as Financial Director of a startup
- 1 month summer internship in the Financial Department of a big Portuguese bank
- 1 month summer internship at a small consulting firm in Brussels

Do you guys think I might get into these programs? Out of these, which one is the best? Plus, are there any other programs in Europe I should be looking into?

Thanks for reading.

I think you have a decent GMAT score and undergraduate GPA, particularly in the finance courses, but your quant score on the GMAT is on the lower side. The internships in the field of finance will definitely strengthen your case. Looking at your target schools, HEC Paris would be a little difficult and same is the case with LSE. IE and Imperial College are worth a shot and you have a good chance of getting into these schools. You can add Warwick Business School,Edhec Business School and Esade Business school to your list. These school are top ranked in Europe and are worth a shot with your profile.

Good Luck!
