Which schools do you refer by top schools?

-University of Toronto Masters in Financial Economics

-Mcgill's Desautels Masters of Management in finance

-University of Texas: Austin Masters in finance and

These are the programs I'm considering but the acceptance rate is really low, so I want to know my chances with my profile.

I would not apply to Schulich MFin. It's a terrible program. 40% was it's placement rate last year

Wow. Thanks for the tip. I wanted to apply there.

McGill MMF is great even if their placements suck because if you end up coming back to your country, you'll at least have a brand. Also, I presonally know internationals who got job in Canada after their MMF. One at Scotia Bank as research associate, another as IB analyst at boutique in Toronto.
