An MSc degree in Finance from LBS requires work experience, and you have that. Plus, your GMAT score is quite good. But admissions to both the LBS and LSE programs are extremely competitive. The acceptance rate at LSE is around 2.6 percent. And these schools attract the best students in the world, so keep that in mind while preparing your application. You will also need very strong (but not too strong!) recommendation letters. I don't know how to interpret your GPA, however. Is a 68 percent great, good, or average?

Your chances at Warwick will be higher than the other two.
