BOUni, I haven't take any English literature course because I have my high school IB English credit transferred. I took a public speaking class and made an A, which is the only English class I have taken in TAMU.

In that case, hopefully you nailed the written and video essays. So you should be good for all your schools except MIT. Your gpa and gmat should make you attractive to them.

Good luck

Honestly, my concerns are that

1. You are a foreign student with a relatively low GMAT verbal score and no English coursework at the university level. You had an opportunity to take Literature but you didn’t

2. You have a good Q score but insufficient math to work as a Quant or for a top MFE. You had the opportunity to take more math course work, but you didn’t

This is why I think top programs may look closely at your essays

Curious why Europe over the US? U Miami is a well known school in the states. You have a lot of internship and experience, at big name places (HIG is very well known, RJ, MS, etc). You have a great GPA and a 700 GMAT is pretty good. You'd definitely get into Vanderbilt, WUSTL, most likely USC. Probably in at UT Austin as well. I would imagine you would get some scholarship money as well.

European programs, I can see you getting into Imperial, LSE (on of their various MSc programs), etc.

I really would like to spend a year in Europe to experience something new. I am targeting LSE, LBS, Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, and possibly Warwick.

At the end of the day I will go to the school with the best network and reputation.

What is ur take on the European schools based on my profile? I am still a junior and have only just began researching, and will have some time to boost my profile even more.

Thank you for the previous response!

BOUni, If my application do not go well, then do you think delaying my graduation for a semester and taking more maths classes and literature classes in TAMU will help significantly with my application for next year? I know that lacking Maths and English classes is my disadvantage.

I’m graduating this semester. It took me 3 years plus a summer. I’m getting a BS in business management and am looking to go to either Indiana or Washington University in St. Louis for a MS in Finance.

640 GMAT with around 40 hours of studying and never even studied for the verbal portion so I’m sure I can raise it if I take it again. Both Quant and Verbal were 61st percentile.
4.0 GPA at an average university.
Member of three national honors societies/fraternities.
Played college basketball (not D1).
Five years work experience but not in the business world.

Do you think I could get accepted to either, both, or neither of those universities? And what others should I apply to? And what gmat do you think I’d need in order to get accepted to those schools if you don’t think I can get in right now. Thanks.

You get that GMAT a little higher and I would say you are a shoe in at both. Athlete with a 4.0 GPA is great.

As for the work experience, showcase it, but don't talk too much about the duration. Not sure what kind of experience it is, but you don't want these adcoms to push you towards an MBA. I am going to assume this was a job during college or a family business or something.

Rochester is a very good school with an international brand recognition. NUS is a good school, especially for international students from say India. If you want to work in the US, Rochester is the obvious choice. If you don't know and you'd be open to working in Europe, Asian or India, go with NUS.
