Prolly easier with a real gmat score

Any chance you could retake the GMAT? Your score is on the lower end for some of the more competitive schools you are applying to. I think the average GMAT for SSE/HEC Paris/Bocconi are around 700+ and Warwick might be around 700 as well. If you don't think you can improve your gmat score consider taking the GRE. It might be a better fit exam wise.

Also just curious, what's the methodology behind how you've chosen your schools? Where are you from and which country would you like to be employed in in the future?

Thank you for your reply!

I can retake my GMAT. As for the methodology in choosing the schools, I've chosen ones that offer the course that I want, and are reputable. I am from South Asia, and would like to be employed in Germany, Sweden or the Netherlands.

Since I'm a novice at this, it would be great if you could provide me with some information regarding what I should be looking at while shortlisting schools as I have failed to come up with a reasonable list.

Awaiting your reply.

Are you fluent in German, Swedish or Dutch?

What languages do you speak? In general its best to study where you'd like to work since it makes networking easier. So if you'd like to work in Sweden for example, it would be best to study in Sweden. If you don't speak the local language you may be fighting an uphill battle and have a difficult time in recruiting.

You have Warwick on your list so I'd assume you're willing to work in London. In that case you should probably also apply to Imperial and LSE. LSE MSc Finance may be a reach with your current GMAT, but their Accounting and Finance program is easier to get into and you'll still have the LSE brand to network with.

If you are convinced that you do not want to return to SEA then you should also be very cautious about studying in the US as immigrating there can be very difficult.
