Hi all, looking for an evaluation for Msc Finance and/or MiM programs.

Schools I am interested are: LBS MiM, MIT MSc Finance, LSE MSc Finance

Program: Bachelor of Health Sciences in Biomedical Sciences with a minor in commerce (one of the top programs in Canada, but I am not sure about the recognition in US), McMaster University (Canada)

GPA: 3.93

Math Courses: Calculus I, Statistics, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Intermediate Microeconomics, Finance, Financial/Managerial Accounting - MIGHT take a linear algebra and calc II course in the fall (WOULD THIS HELP MY CHANCES?)

Work: Student strategy consultant for biomedical commercialization, Summer Research Assistant (rececieved a prestigious research scholarship from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council to conduct this research), Health Policy Research Assistant (1 year), Clinical Research Assistant (4 months), Program Coordinator at a local emergency department hospital program (4 years) - CURRENTLY: In midst of interviewing for an equity analyst position (internship would be completed in time for MIT app)

Extracurriculars/Volunteering: Equity analyst at university investment club, selected to attend a program called Emerging Health Leaders based on merits of academics/leadership (received 5K scholarship to attend), communications/outreach organizer for a community tech club, soccer coach, spinal cord rehab volunteer, athletic therapy volunteer, some other scholarships related to leadership/academics

Planning to write GMAT by November (TARGET: ~730)

For the MSc Finance program, I am lacking slightly in quantitative courses & relevant finance experiences. What do you guys think, do I stand a good chances at the listed programs? And also, any other programs you recommend?

Hey dude,
Well your profile is pretty good. You have excellent grades, and have done some interesting thing in internships and work, and also in your ECs. There's no reason for you not to apply to top programs.

Obviously, since these are per-experience programs, the GMAT will weigh heavily. So with a 730+ you are in pretty good shape.

I would only add that the three programs you have listed are literally the hardest ones to get into (but you knew that, didn't you? :)

So when you come up with an application strategy, try and mix it up and add a few other schools you like that are a bit down the line.

I hope this helps!
Best,
JF
