Hi, Im a third year Economics Honours student at Shri Ram College of Commerce, can someone tell me what chances I have for Msc Management or Msc Finance at the top schools in US like Sloan, Ross, Duke, and NUS in Singapore, with:
10th: 9.6 CGPA
12th: 93.2% (BO4-97.25%)
Graduation: 7.5 CGPA
I'm aiming for a 730 in GMAT.

I have been involved in Extra curricular activities like social service and volunteering. I have volunteered at 2 NGOs and also worked with Nobel Prize laureate Kailash Satyarthi for 100millionfor100million campaign in India. I was awarded a prize for a panel discussion on leadership and data with University of Chicago. I have pursued piano upto grade 2 (Trinity) and creative writing in school. I have also achieved academic excellence awards at school and awarded Brown belt in Karate when i was small. I have held various leadership posts in college such as PR&Marketing Head for the Annual Youth Conference, Secretary of Finance and Investment cell and Deputy coordinator of Commerce society, each of them have been teams of 100+.

I have completed 2 internships, one of them being at KPMG-Research and Knowledge Department and the other at a conglomerate in the finance department. I have also authored 2-3research papers on finance and macroeconomics all of which have been published. I have also completed an online course in finance from a top college in USA.

Hi Prashasti

Thanks for posting. Here is our advice:
- The MSc in Finance is not present at all schools you are looking at. Ross does not have it, at Duke it is the MS in Quantitative Financial Economics (more focused than a regular MSc in Finance). Sloan and NUS do have the MSc in Finance, and you will be a fit with both programs.
- You might also want to look at MS/MSc in Economics programs in Europe/UK (in case those interest you, as they are well aligned to your background), or MiM programs with a focus on Finance, if interested in more finance-centric roles.
- Overall, your profile is excellent, with strong academics and a great GMAT, and great leadership experiences. However, bear in mind that while your leadership experiences will certainly help, they are less important for your candidature at an MSc/MS in Finance program (they would be much more powerful at an MiM or MBA program). Your academic and research background, goals, and fit with the program carry much more weight.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.
