Indian, 21, M, yet to take the GRE

Undergrad from Top 5 French Grand Ecole in Economics (2 yr GPA - 13.5/20) with an exchange semester in the U.S (GPA - 3.5/4). I feel my 2 yr GPA is not so good though I'm hoping my critical health concerns will be highlighted by the Director in his LOR.

No formal work experience, however I have interned in 3 countries as of now,
Business Analyst at a tech startup in Spain, Venture Capital Analyst at a well-known American name in its Buenos Aires office followed by a 1 month stint at an Argentine hedge fund, currently working as an equity research analyst remotely at a boutique IM firm in India.

Volunteer experiences include leading a 2 month soft skill seminar in India, working at a bénévolat (NGO) in France and running a community NGO with help from my family which I founded

Applying to HEC MiM and ESSEC MFin (2 yr. track). Unfortunately I'm only interested in top french programs as I deem them to be a feeder for my target industries in U.K but then since I have a french bac, my interview process in other B-Schools/programs would be in French which deters me from applying as I only possess a B1 level of proficiency. Not interested in 1 yr. UK programs as they're too risky specially in this economic scenario, btw LSE would never take me with that GPA xD

Wish to break into high finance preferably in the U.K (particularly M&A but also ok for investment oriented roles)

Hi kitty90,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. With a strong GRE, you are a competitive candidate. Your written work should also capture the breadth of your experiences demonstrating a competitive candidate. Be sure to communicate with your recommenders what would be beneficial for them to speak about in their letters of support.

If you would like to continue the conversation and discuss how I can help with your applications, please reach out https://www.siaadmissions.com/complimen ... nsultation.

Good luck!

Nationality/Age: Bangladeshi / 30
GMAT: Yet to be taken, however, planning to take the exam in mid-December'20 (Target score around 650)
Educational Background: B.B.A (major: Finance & Accounting, cgpa: 3.50) from Bangladesh; M.Com (major: Accounting, overall marks: 71%) from Australia
Work experience: 2 years in teaching in a private university in Bangladesh
Masters program I intend to apply: My target country is Canada (Business schools: Schulich, Telfer, Smith, and other similar categories)
Post-MS target: Would like to secure a job in Banking or Consulting industry as a Financial Analyst or similar position (depending on the degree that I can avail).

Although I already have a Masters degree, my intention is to get an M.Sc in Accounting (not sure whether PhD is possible as I don't have any significant publications yet) or Masters in Accounting (a big problem is there as Canada doesn't allow direct entry in Accounting masters program for Int. graduates, as far as I know).

Would be happy with a profile evaluation and suggestions (if possible)

Thanks.
