    Hey,

    Here is my profile:

    -Bachelor's degree in a TOP 5 European business school with a decent GPA (80th percentile)
    -Part of a very big finance association - organized case competitions in the US
    -Speak fluent English and French, decent in Spanish and Chinese (I'm French citizen btw)
    -Studied in the US and France for high school
    -Two Investment banking internships in Shanghai

    HOWEVER
    GMAT score: 580...

    Honestly, I think my background is ok but my GMAT score is just too bad...
    So, I'm planning to go back to France for my Master's and I would like to know if I have my chances for ESSEC or ESCP MiM... I don't think I have my chances for HEC tbh..
    A firned of mine, with a similar international background, got accepted to ESCP (through Joint a school in France) with the same GMAT score so maybe I have my chances...

    Just what are your thoughts.

    PS: My plan B in Rotterdam School of Management Master's im Finance and Investment, I'm already accepted. That's a solid back up plan, but as I maybe want to start my career in France, I think I should go for a French school.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    for you, my best advice is: Read carefully the entry criteria and weights of your favorite business schools in my survey The MIM Entry Requirements. This gives you a profound understanding of what will be expected from you to get in.

    Best wishes,
    Thomas
