MIT master in Finance

Hello everyone. Long-term lurker here. I would like to get your opinion about the MIT master in finance and its suitability.

I am originally from North Africa. My undergrad was unranked, and to add insult to injury I got a 3.36 GPA. I've been working in valuation at a Big 4 firm for a year. Worked on different projects in real estate, financial services, and oil and gas. I did some work on currencies and commodities as well and had formal training for it.

I passed all CFA exams and am waiting for the charter, done the IMC certificate as well and still walking through the ESG certificate. Scored 740 on the GMAT, don't think I will take it another time for improvement though. I have some interviews coming up with asset management firms and banks so I'll see where that goes.

Based on this, does it make sense to go for the master's at MIT? Do I stand a chance at admission in the first place?

Keep in mind I'm 23 years old, and given that I already missed this year's deadline I'll have to apply for 2024 class, which means I'll be far above the conventional age for a master's holder. My end goal is either long only asset management or preferably L/s equity hedge fund.

Happy to hear your thoughts.
