Dear mbaMission,

1. GMAT: 700 with Q49 and V35 (could go up to 750)
2. Degree: 5-Year Mechanical Engineer / Graduated first in class / Harder and best university in my country / Top 5% grade
3. Experience: 3 years of experience in IT, Business Operation and raw Mechanical Engineering in my country.

My goal is the top-5 universities in the US.
And if possible, please assess my profile for the MFin program at MIT.

Hi, standyonda.

Congratulations on graduating first in your class! That's an admirable achievement. I'm not 100% clear on your question - are you asking about "top 5" MBA programs in addition to the MFin program at MIT, or similar programs to the MFin program at MIT but at other top schools that are highly regarded for that type of degree? It's a little hard to answer without more clarity.

For the MFin program at MIT, the admissions committee looks at its candidates along a number of lenses: test scores, academic performance, essays (including video essay), and recommendations. What strikes me most from your profile is that I'm not clear on why you want to go to that program from mechanical engineering, and unsure how your past experience will translate to future goals. Your grades seem very good but have you taken finance in the past? It's hard to evaluate how your past skills will map to the curriculum without more detail. If there's not a clear transition, make sure that you explain in your application how and why you'd be successful in the program. I'd also suggest that you might want to retake the GMAT, as the average GMAT in the profile is 726. In general, for comfort, you want to be as close to the average GMAT or GRE as possible, or higher if there are any other possible question marks in your profile.

If you'd like to get further info on the top MBA programs, feel free to visit to set up a free consultation! Thanks so much for writing in to us here.
