Hello,

So today I took GMAT and scored 700 (Q48, V38), and now I could use a little bit of help from you guys on deciding to which universities to apply into. I'm a 24-year-old Finnish male and I'm applying to European business schools for MS Finance programmes for the fall 2017 intake.

Background:

I'm a final year accounting and finance student at University of Vaasa, Finland and I'm expected to graduate with GPA 4.4 on a grading scale 1-5 (1 being the first passing grade and 5 the best).
GMAT 700 (Q48, V38) .
IELTS 8 (lowest score 7, in writing).
Spent two semesters at UCL School of Management in London during 2015-2016, GPA: 70%.
No internships. Worked as a financial assistant in a fairly small financial service provider for three months and as a customer advisor at a major Nordic bank, also for 3 months.
6 months of compulsory military service as a cannon squad leader (do you think I should mention this in my application or as extracurricular activity?).

Situation:

I'm planning to apply to:
Bocconi MS Finance
HSG Banking & Finance
RSM Finance & Investments Advanced
Mannheim Master in Management

What do you think are my chances of getting into the above programs and do you think I should apply to other universities as well? The main reason why I didn't include schools from UK, France or Spain is the high costs of the programs. If I'm missing other good MS Finance programs with tuition costs around 10k€ please let me know!

Thank you in advance! :)

I believe Frankfurt is pretty cheap. Bocconi puts a lot of weight on the GMAT. I think a 710 is fine with them. You should be fine with the other programs, with RSM being the most difficult to get into, respectively.

I'd include the military service since it definitely is experience and not every country requires it.
