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:

Do not want to steal thread - but applying to similar program - thoughts?

Aspiring to apply to top MFin (not Quant MFEng) - think MIT MFin, Oxford MFE, Cambridge MFin

GRE: 329 (Q169, V160) AWA 5
GPA: High Distinction (top 10%)

Work Exp:
Deloitte Consultant, Quant Capital Markets
PwC Audit Associate
CIBC Capital Markets, Corporate and Investment Banking

Thoughts?

Hey sarimzahid2395,

I must say that you have quite an interesting profile. Both GMAT and GPA are very strong, and your work ex is pretty good as well- You have good brand names on your resume, and have relevent experience in the financial industry. I see that you have your heart set on the Tier-1 US Schools - You have a good profile, so I would not say that it is not achievable but note that these schools are notorious for being extremely selective. Majority of the applicants applying to these schools have a steller profile themselves, so even with good scores and notable work ex, there are chances that you might be starting at level ground when it comes these schools.
So the key question here is - How do you differentiate yourself? You will need to dig deep into your profile to highlight 3-4 differentiating factors and have very strong long term goals to showcase in your essay.
Would you mind taking this profile evaluation for me so that I can get more insights into your profile? I will be able to share an in-depth analysis then.
