Hi EpilepticLearner,

You have a really interesting profile that I would like to learn more about. When it comes to MFin, a lot of weight is placed on academics, which you have a really strong record. You profile overall meets the averages of the MIT MFin class profile, so your next step is to ensure that you present a strong case/differentiating application. To that end, be sure you take time to strategically present your story and not just tell your story.

I am happy to talk further with you about your profile. If interested, fill this form to coordinate a consultation.

Good luck!

Great profile. Assuming you've taken the prerequisite classes, I consider your application to have a pretty high chance of getting admitted. Great ranking at a known European program. Strong GMAT. Relevant experience. Two levels of the CFA done (great). Love the volunteering.

Frankly, I can't see why they wouldn't admit you.

Hello EpilepticLearner

Very interesting nick :)


Being ESSEC top 5% student is plus.

Your GMAT score is great, that alone is on MIT standards or even (slightly) above.

Internship is relevant, I especially like data science part.

Having CFA passed level 1 and 2 is what makes a difference :thumbup: for MS in Finance.

Again, having passion for ML in Finance is something commendable and MIT is right place for it.

Being weightlifter myself, I can tell you that signals that you are disciplined ;) to admission committee .


I can see you want to apply ML more in macroeconomic setting, while MS in Finance is usually focused more on microeconomics, however that can work.

Still I dont see much macro related courses in curriculum :

All in all, you have really fair chance of getting admitted at MIT.

Here you can see profile of previously admitted for some comparison :

Good Luck ! :geek: :cool:
