3.44, 170, M.S. Finance, Work Exp.

Postby FinanceStudent28 » Thu Dec 19, 2013 6:01 pm

3.44 Liberal Arts major Top Ten Public (enough for magna cum laude/high honors)
170 LSAT
3.15 M.S. Finance from private semi-target business school

Work Exp: 1 year wealth management, 2 years boutique M&A analyst (by time of possible enrollment)

Would I have chance at lower T14 schools?

How much does Master's GPA hurt me?

your MS will be a decent soft but won't overcome the GPA.

You might not get into a top T14, but be aware that your degree and experience will be a considerable boost when you start OCI/OCS. I would take the best school you get into with the highest scholly since you will be able to make a school like USC work a little bit better for you.

You'll get somewhere into the top 14. For reference I was 3.31 169 and got into Michigan this cycle via ED. You have a decent shot at Mich, UVA, NW, Penn, Cornell, GULC, and Duke. Won't get into all of them but getting into 2 or 3 of those schools seems likely.

Is there some story related to TLS that I'm not familiar with regarding Northwestern?

Thanks for the advice. Congrats on Michigan!

Northwestern appears to weigh work experience more heavily than peer schools. I think this is what they were referring too, nothing negative.

It is enjoyable for striver splitter bros with work experience.
