In my opinion your profile is decent, although you may have to write really good personal statements/cover letters to compete with applicants with higher GPAs.

Hi. Thanks for the review. I worked as analyst equity derivatives structuring team in my intern time. I'm currently working as an assistant manager.

Thanks again for those inputs! I'll definitely work on my profile, and letters optimization!
