Profile evaluation for Oxford MFE [#permalink]

Hello,
I am currently interested in the Oxford Said MFE program. I am a quite concerned my academic qualifications as to whether I do stand a good chance or not, especially concerning my undergrad. I wish that you can help in assessing my profile:

BA, Finance with a 3.62/4.0 GPA and a 3.8/4.0 GPA in my upper division finance courses.
4 years work experience in investment banking.
CFA charterholder and currently preparing for the FRM designation.
GMAT score: 770
Took Calculus 1,2 &3, Applied Statistics, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra as a non-degree student, got straight A's in all of them.
Although my profile does look good, the details in my undergraduate transcript don't, which really worries me. During the first 3 semesters in college I was a real slack-out; ending up with 2 F's and 2 D's; although I repeated them and got A's. During my last 5 semesters in college i aced all of my courses getting almost straight A's. Yet I am worried about those F's and D's that made my transcript look pretty ugly. Do you think that those F's and D's will affect my chances negatively?

It looks to me like you were immature, grew up, and excelled. While it would be better if the Fs and Ds weren't there, considering the rest of your transcript, your work experience, and your GMAT score, I think you have solid reason for optimism. The passage of time doesn't negatively impact maturity at your stage of life.

Best,
Linda
