Hello, I am centralamerican (Honduran) with double major in Industrial Engineering and Finances and an associate degree in Business Administration. Im currently aspiring for a Finance related masters degree in a top B-school in europe. I graduated from a local Honduran unviersity, top 3 of the class in both majors (approx. GPA 3.6). I have only internship experiences, one in a multilateral banking (top bank of the region) and in a top 4 consulting firm, both in Honduras. I have a 700 GMAT and 110 Toefl score.
I am afraid that my undergraduate is not from a top school and that maybe that would affect my chances on being accepted.
How would you guys review my chances on being accepted?

Hi @luismaradiaga
I'm curious about your choice of school/program. I would have advised you to apply to just 3 places: Cambridge/Judge, Oxford/Said, and INSEAD, and wait to see who gave you more scholarship money.

You're totally right. That's why I didn't recommend them.

Just slip admissions a $500k check and you'll be fine
