Top US MFin (Quant) for UK undergrad

Background

Target in the UK studying a STEM degree, incoming intern at a BB (S&T). (Graduate in 2025)

Have scored around 675~ on GMAT FOCUS mocks with a couple weeks of practice

Is it feasible to aim for Princeton or MIT for their MFIN programmes and would around 675 on the GMAT focus do it?

 

Hi, may i ask why u think it's good to apply for a MFin in the US?

I am a maths undergrad at a top UK uni and would also intern at London s&t during this summer.

I was considering for a US master (say for big titles as they r always my dream), but it seems like it's unlikely I can get a job in s&t in the UK, by attending a MFin, even at MIT. Their recruitment season starts 1 and 1/2 year earlier so would be very inconvenient. 

Then I doubt if its worth to apply for a MFin and get there for a master (which def costs £100k+) , or I should just try to get a return offer for my london s&t and start working earlier. 

Any insights appreciated!
