Background and nationality: White, UK, Male, 25 (26 at matriculation)
Undergrad Information: V. high 2:1 (69) in Political Science at top London University (think LSE or UCL)
GMAT: 720 (Q: 47, V: 42, IR: 7, AWA: 6)
Work experience and leadership: Big Four M&A Tax (first promotion after qualifying as CA - not possible to be promoted sooner). Hold a leadership role at work amongst junior staff. Rated highly in performance reviews and have been involved with a number of high-profile client events and internal projects relating to the implications of politics (especially recent UK politics) on our services/work.
Community and others: Have an entrepreneurial background - co-founded a start-up at university and was successful as an investor whilst there. Was also a well-regarded player of a particular skill-based game that resulted in prizes and coached others in this game. Today, I continue appraising investments with my brother and also help out to manage the family business. Community-wise: more politically active than a charity person.
Post MBA goals: Investment banking in London
Anything else? Applying round 2. Expect to produce strong essays and to focus on finance as groundwork towards a long-term goal as a FTSE100 CFO

I believe you will seen as too young and inexperienced for an MBA. People with only 2 years of experience do get in, but they are exceptional. There would be too many Indian, male consultants applying with equally high GMAT scores to you, so they will prefer those with more experience.

Have you considered a MiF degree?

I applied for MFE last year and got admit from Columbia, couldn't join because of personal reasons but I'm not sure if MFE is the right thing to do if you're planning for a PE/VC job, is it?

To be perfectly blunt, it's highly unlikely that you'll secure a PE/VC/HF role post-MBA with only 6 months pre-MBA finance experience. An MFE might make more sense as it'll get you a pathway to a more junior finance role (analyst at an investment bank or junior trader), which you can leverage for a different role.

Although fair warning, the pathways into PE, VC, and HFs are all very different, so do your research before you start making moves.
