Grad - Banking and Finance GPA: 3,96/4,00 (did not finish dissertation, coursework completed - got advanced finance courses, straight A's-)
GMAT 690 (Q50 V33)
CFA Level 3 candidate, passed level 2 in 90th percentile
3-4 years of job experience at 2nd biggest bank of Turkey. (capital markets + project finance)

Did you get the masters? If so, great GPA. GMAT could be higher, but it’s all verbal which isn’t as important for these programs. L2 done and good work experience.

HEC seems to be the toughest of the ones you listed to get into. LSE should admit you. Bocconi I think yes. Others, I’d say without a doubt.

IMO, focus on LSE, HEC and Bocconi. Let the others be safeties.

Hey there,

As you stated you have graduated from a good school which will be a positive thing on your application.
Your Undergrad GPA is decent as well. GMAT looks good for ESADE and Bocconi but is on the lower scale for HEC and LBS.

What really works for you is the CFA and Work ex part.

CFA is highly valued by MFin Schools, this can act as a profile differentiator.
You seem to have an extensive experience in core finance fields, so that’ll be a plus.
However, make a note that a lot of finance applicants are not articulate about this - They miss highlighting the right points despite having a solid work experience.
So make sure that you are digging deep into your work profile, and picking up strong experiences. In this context, spend enough time on your essays as this is where you get a chance to showcase how you are a good fit for the school

Lastly, your ethnicity can help as well as schools are always on the lookout for people from different nationalities to improve the diversity of the cohort.

As for your target schools, ESSADE, HEC, Bacconi are quite competitive make sure you ace every part of the application (essays, GMAT, LOR, resume) to get noticed.

Hope this helps.
