LSE/Imperial/Oxford Msc Finance/Financial Economic - Chances [#permalink] New post 17 Apr 2011, 03:07
So I'm looking at applying for the LSE/Imperial/Oxford for Msc in Finance or Financial Economics and here's my background:

Graduated from a top liberal arts college in the US on a full scholarship and GPA 3.6 with major in Economics, internship exp in banking and consulting, followed by 1 year start-up experience in the silicon valley, and 2 years with a top international management consulting firm and currently based in Asia. GMAT 700. Completed CFA 1. I would like to switch into finance (corp finance/M&A) and thought this program could be very helpful.

I originally thought I would have a fairly good chance of getting in (I was previously admitted to the LSE MSc Mgt and Strategy program but decided against going) but then I understand the admissions rates are very low...

1. could someone please comment on my chances?
2. would it help if i get work reference? e.g. recommendation letter from a partner
3. What are the other safety choices I should look into? Preferably in London as well

Thanks guys!
