Masters in Finance - Profile Evaluation [#permalink]

Dear All,
I am in the process of applying to business schools this year for Masters in Finance programs. My profile is as follows:
Undergrad: BSc. Accounting and Finance (Maths minor) from the top business school in Pakistan with a distinction (GPA 3.62/4)
GMAT: 720 (Q48 V40)
CFA Level 1 cleared
Experience: I have done two internships at the Central Bank of Pakistan and Ernst & Young. Since my graduation in May 2017 I have been working as a financial analyst at a PE firm in Pakistan.= and have worked on multiple deals worth over USD 1 million.
I am targeting the following programs: Mfin at MIT, MFA at LBS, MFin at USC Marshall, MFE at Oxford, MFeng at Haas, MFeng at UCLA.
My major concern is a lower GMAT quant score.
Do I have a chance in these programs? I would also appreciate suggestions for other programs to consider.
Thanks

1) Good GPA
2) Very good GMAT (and the V aspect is great as well)
3) Good work experience.
4) CFA L1 is nice to have.

I would apply to all of those schools, but my caveat would be that you might not have enough math for the MFE programs. I don't know your entire profile so if I am wrong, I apologize.

Don't worry about your GMAT. 48Q is fine and the fact you have a V above 30 is great. I think the GPA, 720 GMAT and work experience all make you a good applicant at all of those schools. I'd probably say LBS is the "easiest" for you to get into.
