Your MSF Ranking [#permalink] New post 16 May 2007, 13:45
I just thought that I would be useful if everybody shares their top10 MSF choices, arranged by priority. I know it is all relative but this is what my top 10 MSF list would look like:

1. Princeton
2. Washington Uni in St Louis (Olin)
3. Vanderbuilt
4. Uni of Illinois - Urbana Campaign
5. Boston College
6. University of Wisconsin
7. Texas A&M
8. Uni of Florida
9. George Washington Uni
10. CUNY Baruch

Please note that this is my personal list and isn't necessarily the best choice. I will appreciate your responses.


Thank you,

I applied with a more international scope, but I will give my list as well:

Master in Financial Management:
LSE(London)
HEC (Paris)
Instituto de Empresa (Madrid)

Master in Financial Engineering:
Berkeley (CA)
Oxford (UK)

I am going for a master in financial management at LSE next year, there is more opportunity for growth at an I-bank with that then an engineering program. (At least those are the words of my derivative professor in undergrad)

4. University of Michigan
5. Villanova
6. Vanderbilt

Hey G.I.

I got accepted in the MSc in Finance and Accounting at the LSE. I only had internships and worked part time through school. So no real experience per se. I had a 660 on my GMAT, and I am in honors at my University in Finance with a 3.6 GPA overall.
What got me into LSE I believe is my somewhat international background.
I am originally from France, moved to the US in high school, and lived a few months in Cuba as well. Also my mom is Russian so I went to Russian school every wednesday in France.
My essays were rather dry, but I had the dean of the b-school write me a letter as well and I think that had a lot of weight.

Good luck to you G.I. if you plan on applying, and I would be more than willing to give you advices on everything. The MSc Finance part of the website is not very active, but I will try my best to stay involved in it :)

Hi,
I just want to enquire about the kind of students get admitted at LBS or LSE, as i want to apply there but i'm having some doubts about it.
I'm looking to apply for MS fin in LBS, LSE, OXford, Queen's college Kingston CANADA. But i'm not sure if my profile is good enough for that.
I've done my b-tech (Computer science) from an indian university, with 65% (non honours), then i have 2 years of work experience (IT) with FIDELITY Info Services, working for yorkshire, clydesdale bank and bank of america.
Will be gving the GMAT, probable score of 700/800(hopefully, look favourable).
i will be giving CFA level 1 in june 2009.
Looking at my average Academic record, Plus the applications will be sent for third round, Shall i apply to the schools i have mentioned here, or i shall look for some other schools which look favourable.
Kindly, tell as to what i should do? and to which schools i shall apply? Little bit confused for the time i'm applying for the MS fin Schools, i mean i'll be applying by january end or february. is that ok?

Thanks a ton for replying to it, and helping me out of this!!!

Regards,
Pankaj
