Hi everyone,

I'm aiming to pursue a Master in Finance in 2018. Since many application deadlines are just around the corner, appreciate if you can give me some advice as to my chances for the below schools:
- Oxford MSc in Mathematical Finance
- Cambridge Master in Finance
- LSE Master in Finance / Finance and Economics
- MIT Master in Finance

Snapshots of my credentials:
- GPA: 3.66/4.00 (dual bachelor's degree in accountancy and finance from one of Singapore's top 3 university)
- GRE: 331 (V:161, Q:169, W:4.5)
- Work experience by 2018: 2 years in asset management risk and control functions
- Internship experience: Financial services Big 4 audit; internal strategy consulting internship
- Others: Passed CFA level 1
- Concerns: Limited coursework on mathematics and programming in university, but have taken efforts to learn VBA, Python and Matlab after graduation.

Thanks for all your inputs!

So profile is very good. GPA - strong. GRE converts to a 740, very good. You should be fine for the LSE program. MIT has a bootcamp for people without the required math skills. You might want to try and take a required math class in between now and school starting. As for the other programs, not sure their required classes. End of the day, you have good stats, went to a good school and have good work experience. Schools should be willing to work with you.
