Hey guys,

I'm planning to pursue an Msc in Finance for the 2018 September intake. Could you please rate my profile? I am open for alternative suggestions too!

So, here it is:

Education: Senior student at a top university in my country (Morocco) majoring in Finance with a minor in Mathematics. Completed an exchange semester in Korea University Business School during my Junior year.

GPA: 3.9 / 4.0

Major courses : International Finance, Corporate Finance, Investment Theory, Advanced Macroeconomics, Money and Banking, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra...

GRE: 163 Quant, 157 Verbal

Work Experience:

Currently at a Big4 with the Risk Management Advisory team, internship is 5 months long
Worked as a Financial Analyst intern over the summer at a Fortune 500 (Junior summer)
Worked as a Sales Analyst intern over the summer at the same F500 (Sophomore summer)

Languages: Native in Arabic and French, fluent in English

My target universities for Msc Finance are:

Oxford, LSE, HEC, EDHEC, SSE, (MIT maybe?)

Could you please tell me if I stand a chance? Also, please let me know how I can improve my current profile to become more competitive.

Thank you for your time!

GPA is great. GRE converts to around a 650 GMAT. Ok, but not great. Internships are a plus.

You might stand a chance with one of the "easier" to get into LSE MSc programs, but I think the rest might be difficult. Don't know much about EDHEC though. I'd put some more time into your GRE, get that higher and you'll be much more competitive with all the other profile strengths you have.

Why not take the GMAT? It is more quant focused, which you seem to excel in. Might be easier to boost that than focus on the verbal section of the GRE.

Hello MSFHQ,

Thank you for your response!
I've been reading online that the Quant part of the GRE is more valued in my target universities. If that's true, is a 163 good enough?
Concerning the GMAT, it is unfortunately more expensive than the GRE :( , and I could use my brother's GRE prep books..

Would you please share with me other programs I should perhaps consider?

Thank you again !
