HI,
I am a 4th year engg student from India.I want to pursue my MSF or MFin(i have a strong quant background) in the US .My main concern is the job prospects for an international student after completing the MSF course .I have read that its very difficult for an international student to get sponsorship and also a work visa.
My profile -
GPA-3.2
GRE-313 (Verbal-156 quant - 157)
TOEFL-108
Had only a month of internship experience(But in my core field) .
I have a strong proficiency in english and also have good communication skills.
I am planning on applying to Boston college , Northeastern , Olin , Simon Rochester.
What are my chances of getting into these programs and also can you suggest a few more colleges ?
Please help .
Thank you in advance.

My GMAT/GRE conversion tool might be old, but I tried converting those GRE scores and it came out to about a 580 GMAT. If that is the case I would say the only school you have a decent shot at is Northeastern. Maybe add Brandeis or Bentley to the mix. Your GPA is low, GRE score appears low and not a lot of internship experience. I'd probably look into the CFA, try and get more internships or otherwise focus on your resume and experience.

Thank YOU for the suggestion .Will surely look into it.Also the GPA system in India is out of 10 for which I have 7.5 . I also wanted to know about the job opportunities after MSF for an Indian student in the US?I have heard that companies are usually hesitant to sponsor international students. Will it also depend on which university you go to?

I think risk management, corporate finance, valuation, stuff like that. Bigger firms usually are more open towards bearing the cost of sponsorship. I'd reach out to international students who graduated from the programs you are interested in and talk with them about their experiences. They can help guide you with regards to OCR and which firms sponsor.

Getting an interview is absolutely a good thing. I don't know the specific questions, but I would be prepared to answer a) why an MSF, b) why WUSTL, and c) how will this improve your career. I would also re-read your essays as they might ask you to elaborate on things you said in them. Stuff like that. Good luck!
