I really wanted to know my chances at the various MS in financial engineering and related programs. It would be of great help if someone could guide me through this.
You are a pretty competitive candidate, just make sure you clarify your reasons for the application as you don't seem to have full time work experience. GS, MS do hire from campuses so it wouldn't hurt to work for a year or two and then apply for studies. But its your call. Good luck!
