Do Double Majors help with MFE admissions?

Does having a lower GPA of 3.0 with Double Major in Finance and Data Science and a strong GRE of 168 Quant help with admissions for MFE programs in the US?
I only know how to program with python and took all the neccessary math courses(Linear, multi).
Being that I am a dual citizen and studied my undergrad at NYU.

From my experience, double major itself doesn't help much. The courses you took matter much more than that.

Thank you for the reply, do you think that having a double majoring in Data Science and Finance makes up for the lower GPA of 3.0. I have A's and B+'s on all relevant math courses(Multi-, linear, econometrics and AI courses)? And I a international student from studying at NYU Shanghai.

TBH I don't think so. Try to boost up your GPA before you submit your application.
