Hello all,

I'd greatly appreciate any feedback/evaluation/suggestion thrown my way -

Grades are as follows,

- Roughly around the 3/4 GPA mark. (One of the top 5 commerce colleges in India).
- Roughly around 3.5/4 GPA mark in an undergraduate diploma in Finance. (Again, one of the top 5 commerce colleges in India).
- Expecting to score between 320 and 330 in the GRE.
- Expecting a good TOEFL score (105-110)

Work Experience
,

- Internship at Goldman Sachs
- Currently working at Goldman Sachs (Would have completed 2 years by the time I join the MSF program).
- Volunteer work at U&I India for one year (teaching English to the less fortunate).

Additionally,

- Recognition on various accounts at workplace such as enhancing processes, initiating projects etc.
- Professional cricket player (captained numerous teams across age groups such as U-16, U-19, U-22 etc).
- Very strong communication and writing skills
- Excellent teamwork and leadership skills
- Confident of receiving strong Letter of recommendation from senior people at Goldman Sachs.


Schools I'm targeting -

- Rochester
- University of Maryland
- University of Minnesota
- University of Florida
- The dream would be Urbana Champaign.

Open to suggestions, do let me know where I stand and what the odds are.

Thanks well in advance.

Best Regards,
Abhi

Hi Abhi,

You seem to be well within the class profile ranges of these programs, therefore I'd encourage you to apply to all of them, and maybe add 1-2 programs which are a bit of a stretch to get into. Always give a shot to an aspirational program.

Crucial element in the application will be to have a purpose for doing an MSF; this purpose is always driven by what you have done so far and what you wish to do in the future. For this same reason, b-schools ask for the SOP from MS applicants.

Do reach out if you need help with you application- we'd be most willing to help.

UF is closed to outside applicants. You'd be competitive at all the other schools. Work experience helps. GRE score is good, but for foreign applicants it could be better. I'd say you'll get into most of those programs and the one(s) you don't will be because of your essays or something.

I was very apprehensive to begin with, but having read your replies, it makes me a lot more confident and gives me a bit of comfort.

Thank you very much for the suggestions. I really appreciate it more than you know.

Hello,

Thank you very much for the suggestions.
I have one follow up question.

Regarding the educational requirement for the universities, a majority of the universities require an equivalent of the bachelor's degree in the US (4 years). However, my education qualification is 3 year bachelor degree + 1 year of post graduate diploma.

I would like to highlight that the post graduate diploma was a weekend course intended for working professionals. It was on-campus (not online or distance education). It is from a recognised university in India. Would this affect my chances of being accepted at Universities?

Many many thanks in advance!

Best Regards,
Abhishek Rallabhandi.
