Hi,

Can anyone take a look at my profile and evaluate the chances of me getting into an MS in Fin programme? Is there any chance that I can get into a top college in Europe or US (Edhec, Essec, HEC, Bocconi, MIT Sloan, LSE, Oxford Said, or any other top colege). If not, what colleges should I apply into? Any kind of help will be greatly appreciated.

1. GRE 327 (Q: 167, V: 160)
2. GPA 7.05/10, IIT Delhi (Class of '15)
3. 2 years of experience as an analyst in Supply Chain in an ecommerce firm
4. A two month internship in an education based NGO
5. Decent participation in Extra Currics (Dramatics, Clubs etc.)
6. CFA level 1 and 2 cleared

I think my GPA and non relevant work exp would be the biggest bottlenecks here. I know that many top European colleges accept candidates without a relevant work experience, but I would like to know if I stand a chance against the other applicants having a work ex.
Also, does anyone think that along with CFA 1 and 2, having an MS in Fin degree be of any value addition at all? Many of the topics listed in the curriculums of most colleges have mostly been covered in these 2 CFAs.
To make it easier for people who'll be inclined to answer no to the above question, I'll be writing my CFA 3 as well in June '18, even if I get into one of these colleges. :-) :-D

Thanks a lot!

GRE converts to about a 710 GMAT. Good. CFA L1 and L2 cleared, good. GPA is an issue, although I don't know how it translates into the US system. That being said, IIT Delhi is a great Indian school.

In my experience, European schools tend to be more regimented. US schools care about placements and admitting students who can place well. You would fit that bill. I would imagine your UG major was in something difficult which can be used to offset the lower GPA.

As for schools, I would apply to a couple top EU ones and then some second level. Imperial, Frankfurt, stuff like that. Bocconi might accept you, but I don't see much financial aid coming. Oxford will be tough. Maybe LBS MiM.
