I'm planning to apply for a masters degree, and would like to have my profile evaluated.
Any help will be preciously received.
Undergrad (BSc in Accounting and Finance) - one of top UK universities (Russell Group), sitting within 40 of the world ranking.
- GPA: major 3.73, cumulative: 3.63
- FRM (1 & 2), level 1 CFA obtained during my bachelor's degree (second, third year, FYI, UK universities are 3-year based)
- 8 month experience: 3-month prop intern & 5-month full time prop trader in 2 London based prop shops (not named)
- Have invested since June 2012, building up a factor investing model
- Q: 168, V: 164, AWA: 4.0
- Since my BSc study has been totally focused on finance, I took some additional mathematics/programming courses such as R programming, Calculus, Computational investing, and so on, all of which were completed with a demonstrable certificate (with Distinction).
> am I going to lose my competitive edge in the admission process if I didn't take the mathematics/programming classes in the uni? are these courses regarded as, at least, my effort for master's preparation?
I'm aiming at:
1) M.Fin Princeton
2) Columbia MSFE
3) Stanford MCF
I would like to politely request anyone, watching this post and willing to leave a commentary, to objectively evaluation my qualifications, and a chance (if any) for being admitted by any of my target schools.
Your help will be highly appreciated!
HUGE thanks in advance.
