I would like to apply for european programs next year but I am not sure I qualify for top programs such as oxford or lse. Hence, I would like to make an application for places like ETH,Vienna, EPFL or maybe ICL, warwick. How hard is it to get into such programs? I am an econ student coming from top university of turkey. My gpa is around 3.60 and took classes like diff equations,linear algebra,stats,econometrics and aced all of them (A or A-). However, my programming skills are weak and I dont have much internship experience. I only had 2 months data science internship at a fintech startup and I basicly analyzed data using python and through python I applied regression models and some basic KNN analysis to stock and index data. Moreover, I exposed to algorithmic trading technics and saw how they are used (mainly mean reversion and pairs trading). Finally, I think I might got advanced letters from profs graduated from oxford or columbia, if it matters.
