Hi guys! I'm 21/F from India and I'm planning to apply for the MFE program at Oxford either this November or maybe next. My undergrad was Bsc Statistics (highly quantitative course) from one of the top 10 colleges in India. My GPA is 7.5/10 and GRE 323 (163 quant 160 verbal). I've had two internships - one of them was in investment banking and the other was with the branding team of Ernst and Young. I would also be taking the CFA Level 1 exam this December.
Currently I have two options -
I have an offer from BCG Knowledge for a knowledge analyst role in the private equity practice (it's a back office supporting role)
I have an offer to intern at a VC firm, however it's not a very big fund.
1) which of the above two options will increase my chances of getting into Oxford/Imperial and then IB/VC post masters? I haven't heard of anyone switching from knowledge analyst to IB/VC :|
2) what are my chances of getting into Oxford/Imperial with the given scores and profile in general?
Let me know what you guys think!
