Chances at MIT MFin

Please give me a profile Eval for MIT MFin:

3.8 GPA Economics from Top 20 US Undergrad (Math Courses: Statistics = A, Calc I = A, Calc II = A)
3.3 GPA at MAcc at Top 25 School

Internships at Venture Capital Firm, Boutique Investment Banking Firm, Big 4 financial advisory, and BB Wealth Management all in NYC.

GRE: 161 V/160 Q - willing to retake as I did not study enough the first time I took it.

By the time I enter program - may have one year at top firm in equity research or something similar.
Goal - to get into an Elite M&A IB Analyst program then Private Equity.

As crazy as this sounds, I also potentially may consider a JD/MBA at top school in the future for more general management/strategy.

Thoughts?

Yeah what was the thinking for the MAcc? You'll have to disclose that to them and may seem a little odd to the Adcoms. No idea how that GRE score ranks but everything else looks competitive as long as you can explain the fact that you aren't a career student.

You should definitely retake the GRE. Using the conversion tool that outputs a GMAT equivalent of 650. That's not nearly as competitive as you need to be for MIT.
