Hello guys,

I'm from Azerbaijan and I am going to apply for SSE MSc in Business&Management program for 2018 intake. Having read posts of fellow applicants made me stressed as there are very strong applications which I think will take me out.

Could you please evaluate my profile and giving me a picture of my chances of getting into SSE:

-24 y.o
- Bachelor's in Organization and Management of Industry from a well-known local university with 520/700 entrance exam score and GPA of 82/100 (approx. 3.0/4.0)
- an internship at Central Bank;
-1 year military service after graduation;
- First work experience abroad (Central Europe) as a trading consultant at a brokerage firm for 5 months;
- Currently working at Central Bank as a junior risk management specialist for 8 months. (it will be one year next January, so I won't have even a year of formal work experience at the time of application as my first work experience wasn't formal, it was not counted as an experience, I can only show a proof that I worked there, that's all.);
- Had an IELTS score of 7.5 but expired, I will retake;
- Currently prepping for GMAT, aiming for 700+;
- no extracurricular (except sports I did, when I was at secondary school).

What do you think of my chances? And could you please advise me how can I improve my profile?

Thanks beforehand and best of luck for all applicants:)

I would say apply, but your GPA will be what hurts you. I like your background though. Do as well as possible with the GMAT and it might offset the lower GPA.

Are you looking at any other European programs?

MSFHQ thanks for your answer.

I also think that GMAT score of 730 or something would cover my low GPA.

I would like to apply other programs, but I need a full scholarship.

What can I do to improve my profile to get full-funded scholarship except GMAT?
