Hello,

I'd like to request for a profile evaluation and recommendation for my application
in MSc Fin or MBA.

Here is my profile:

I am South East Asian who is now a citizen of New Zealand. I have
been living here for 7 years.


Education

2nd Year Applied Mathematics
University of the Philippines — did not finish,
relocation to New Zealand

2nd Year BS Electrical and Electronic Eng with Honours
Auckland University of Technology — did not finish, work full-time, bills, wrong
priorities, happy go lucky, irresponsible

BBus Marketing
Auckland University of Technology — Graduate

Exchange Student (1 term)
John Molson School of Business, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada

My GPA for BBus Marketing is 3.3.


Work

1 year PT — Regional Service Controller: supporting 63 stores across New
Zealand in re reverse-logistics

0.5 years PT — Admin Assistant to GM of Operations for the same company
(offered permanent role but declined due to departure to Canada)

1 year FT(ongoing) — Public Transport in Auckland as Information Specialist
responsible for creation and development all public transport timetables
and brochures in Auckland.

GMAT

I took a mock up GMAT and got 100% in Quant but did terrible in Verbal. I
got 680 overall score. My target is to get minimum 700 Overall.

Questions

1. I would like to transition into Finance and get into Wall St — would this be a
stretch? Would MS Fin be more ideal than MBA?

2. I was looking into Stern, LSE, LBS, and UCL -- would this be possible? What
other schools would you recommend?

3. Would MIT, HBS, Wharton, etc be asking for too much?


Thank you so much and I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Questions

1. I would like to transition into Finance and get into Wall St — would this be a
stretch? Would MS Fin be more ideal than MBA?With your work history FT being on low end, the MS Fin might be a better shot. Univ of Rochester has a great MsFin program you might look into.

2. I was looking into Stern, LSE, LBS, and UCL -- would this be possible? What
other schools would you recommend? Stern MBA likely to be a stretch- might have shot at LBS

3. Would MIT, HBS, Wharton, etc be asking for too much? I think with this work experience and GMAT you are in low odds for these schools right now.

Getting placed into finance role in MsFin programs would give you most likely best entry to finance employment at the level you need right now.
Thank you so much and I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
