I got accepted in the MSc in Finance and Accounting at the LSE. I only had internships and worked part time through school. So no real experience per se. I had a 660 on my GMAT, and I am in honors at my University in Finance with a 3.6 GPA overall.
What got me into LSE I believe is my somewhat international background.
I am originally from France, moved to the US in high school, and lived a few months in Cuba as well. Also my mom is Russian so I went to Russian school every wednesday in France.
My essays were rather dry, but I had the dean of the b-school write me a letter as well and I think that had a lot of weight.
Good luck to you G.I. if you plan on applying, and I would be more than willing to give you advices on everything. The MSc Finance part of the website is not very active, but I will try my best to stay involved in it
I had a dream, it involved me getting 510 on my GMAT...
