22 year old Male from Hong Kong

Target Schools:
- MSc Financial Economics @ Oxford
- MSc Finance @ LSE

1) Work Experience: 0

2) Uni Info
-BSc Banking and International Finance @ Cass Business School
-1st Class Honor expected (76.5% archived in the first two years) (70%+ a First Class)
- 2 Scholarships received from the 1st and 2nd year ( Consistently ranked on the top 5 in my class).
-Good grades obtained for all Quantitative Modules ( 80% for Math. Finance, 84% for Company Valuation, 78% for Econometrics)
- Copies of transcripts are attached.

3) GMAT will be taken shortly

4) Extra. activities:
• Captain of School football team @high school
• Vice-President of Boarding House @ High School
• Member of Finance, Quantitative Finance Club @ Uni
• Doing a Self-Study course about Advanced Financial & Valuation Modelling


I have several questions:

i) What score should I get for GMAT in order to be considered?

ii) If I do not apply for scholarships for those two schools. do I have a better chance of getting admitted?

iii) Does my school's reputation / scholarship give me extra points?

iv) Should I apply in R1 / R2 ? I heard that Oxford's MFe is more competitive in R1 but they will help to find summer internships

v) I have both UK and Hong Kong Citizenships. Is it better if I apply as a British citizen or the other way round?

thank you for evaluating and hope to hear back from you soon

i) What score should I get for GMAT in order to be considered?
Shoot for above your target schools' average score if you can.

ii) If I do not apply for scholarships for those two schools. do I have a better chance of getting admitted?
No--applicants are generally considered for fellowships along with their applications. If not, requesting consideration or applying separately for scholarships will not adversely affect their decision.

iii) Does my school's reputation / scholarship give me extra points?
Yes by all means the quality and rigor of your undergrad preparation will be considered. Cass has a great reputation, particulalry in that part of the world, so you should be recognized by the adcoms for that.

iv) Should I apply in R1 / R2 ? I heard that Oxford's MFe is more competitive in R1 but they will help to find summer internships
Apply as soon as you can put together the best application.

v) I have both UK and Hong Kong Citizenships. Is it better if I apply as a British citizen or the other way round?
You will be required to inform them of your citizenship status including dual status.
