Thanks Connor and TraderJoe. I did quit my job because I got married and had to move here on an dependent visa. The same reason why I cannot look for a job. Well the post grad diploma in India is not very quantitatively oriented since there is no demand for such skills in the Indian job market. Though almost 80% of my credits were from finance courses, they were more of the CFA kind: Business Valuation, security analysis and portfolio mgmt, corporate finance, banking etc.CMU and Baruch have good placement record. Chicago is an extremely high quality academic program, but I believe that the students are having placement problems.
You have almost perfect profile for Harvard / Stanford / Wharton MBA. International, female, 760 GMAT, 2 years finance work experience. The main problem is you have to explain why you did not take a job for past 10 months. I assume that you got married, quit your previous job and moved to USA.The long-term payoff from Top 10 MBA is infinitely greater than the payoff from MFE.
I did consider MBA, but felt it was more difficult to justify another one. Personally, I feel I am well versed with the finance courses that would be included in an MBA program and am definitely not keen to go through them again...I really don't feel there would be much value addition for the two years I will be investing
