Been reading this site for a while now, but first post, so here goes;
I'm currently in my final year at Imperial College doing an Engineering degree (MEng), and in the process of applying for Masters in Finance (or similar) at a variety of the top business schools/universities - LSE, Imperial, Cass, Princeton, Bocconi, ESSEC, HEC, etc.
I've already taken the GMAT after studying for 3 weeks and got 710 overall (Q47, V40). That represents a 73rd quant percentile, 90th verbal and 92nd overall. My engineering degree is obviously highly quantitative and I've done a large number of maths, statistics, programming and almost all of my subjects contain a strong mathematical component, however I was wondering if my quant score would be strongly looked down upon despite my quantitative degree? I'm aware that in the states the GMAT is quite a highly weighted part of one's application, but I have the impression that its slightly less so in Europe - am I right or simply delusional?
Would appreciate any advice/experience from people in the know, or those who've been in similar situations!
