Dear GMAT Club Members,

I am going to apply for the masters in finance course for the 2019 intake. And I wanted to understand the level of importance, Academic performance holds in the profile evaluation for the school. I have done my bachelors in commerce in India from a reputed college. But my academic performance is below par at best. I had an average of 66% during the course of 3 years during my graduation in commerce with specialisation in accounting. I have a 760 GMAT score. Also cleared my first level of CFA and have done a 1 year certificate program in Entrepreneurship and Management. I have led my college for intercollegiate events and also have done volunteer work during that year. Currently I am working in the Corporate Finance Division of Deloitte.

My piss poor academic performance, can be explained because I was pursuing another certification, which I stopped halfway. However, I have done internships as a part of that course from EY during that course. So I want to understand, if that's a huge red flag for MIT Sloan Masters in Finance.

How will my profile be evaluated?

Is excellent academic performance a non-negotiable requirement for Sloan, or it can be compensated in other parts of my profile ?

Thank you in advance.

That will definitely hurt your application.

I recommend to go to the Princeton site, clik on mfin,they display all the curriculi vitae current alumni.

These students at these schools are similar. All with IB exp, stellar gpa's, multiple achievements,.. Have a look at it, and ask yourself if you could fit in there
