Hi!

I'm a fresh undergrad planning to apply to Master in Finance programs this year.

About me:
Polish Male, 21
GMAT: 720 (Q47,V42, IR 8, AWA 5.0)
Undergraduate Qualification: Finance and Accounting (GPA 3.8/4) from top polish university of economics
Work experience: 5 months internship in deal advisory, valuations department in Big4 firm and still interning
Extra activities:
- runner up in a few student competitions (mostly national level)
- author of 2 scientific articles
- active participation in student organizations i.e. doing projects, organizing conferences etc. (finance and economics related)

My target programs:
- LBS MFA
- HEC MIF
- Imperial MIF
- St Gallen

My concern is whether should I retake the GMAT to get higher quant score. Verbal score is in line with my mock exams (39-44), while quant is 2-3 point lower than my mocks (which were mostly 49 or 50).
So, should I take a month or so to retake GMAT and then apply in December/January in round 2 or should I apply with this result in round 1 - that is around October/November for most schools?

How does my profile stack up against these programs?
Your expert evaluation would be highly appreciated!

Kind Regards

Hello CroZzB3ST

Your list of schools is great choice, something I would consider. ;)


Let me provide you with facts that are in your favor.


LBS MFA average GMAT score is 708

HEC MIF median GMAT is 710

Imperial MIF want 650 or higher :)

St Gallen Banking and Finance (MBF) want minimum of 680, Quantitative Economics and Finance (MiQE/F) would like to see minimum of 650.


You don't need to retake GMAT, you are set.


The rest of your profile is also fine.

You should apply in first round.


Good Luck with LBS, I would go there :cool: (but the rest of schools are also great, you cannot make a wrong choice !)
