As an aspirant investment banker, I have intentions of pursuing a career in investment banking or any such career closely relevant to investment banking. I graduated from an american university that is ranked in the top 40's, along with a year of work experience in investment banking in the form of internships. Although I lack sufficient work experience to apply to any reputable MBA program, I believe that I may have an outside chance at Oxford's Masters in Financial Economics program, as work experience is not required. However, my plight is that my credentials fall slightly short of the required minimum. The minimum GPA required from american candidates is 3.5 GPA; however, my GPA is at a 3.2, although I have shown remarkable improvement throughout the course of my undergraduate career, which I hope will be viewed favorably by the admissions selectors at Oxford. Furthermore, I have noticed that the averageof candidates is in the 90th percentile. Although I am yet to sit the GMAT, I have taken a practice test, which I scored a 590. Given my academic background and the fact that I improve in achieving a sufficiently high GMAT score that would on par with Oxford's standards, would admission at Oxford's MFE program seem conceivably possible. Any feedback would be kindly appreciated.
