having CFA, FRM

1) helps in getting into MF/MFE ?
2) has no bearings
3) is an overkill and hence tough to defend

Its not about me :-0...a general query indeed

Actually...CFA/FRM can be done without leaving your job

while MFE/MF has full 1 year investment

on the other side...

CFA/FRM might not be good enough to fetch you a hard core finance job ( if you happen to be from any other industry)....MF/MiF might do the trick

Please answer in more details, I am also working for CFA level 2. Since I have a GRE score of 1340, TOEFL 99; shall I try now or shall I wait for a year to clear CFA level 2???
How much CFA level 2 and FRM level 2 will make an impact to get some funding with admission?
Is GMAT 700 good enough or 750+ needed to get funding of any kind?
