Profile evaluation for MSc Finance

Hi guys, 

I'm an average undergrad student(20 yo) from an average uni in Bangalore, India. 

GPA - 7.5, 2 internships in wealth management ( not well-known firms), 1 on-going internship in quantitative finance( not a well-known frim). I'll be writing CFA L1, feb 2021. yet to take the GMAT, I'll probably get around 680-700.  I've completed a bunch of Insidesherpa virtual experience modules and I'm doing 2 courses on coursera ( python and investment management). I've recently started to trade penny stocks with a small sum, I'd like to take this forward too. 

I want to make big money in the comings years to help fam and buy homes and have my own family. I'll be moving to Germany next year for a Msc Fin but I am not sure where to apply or where I could get an admit with this profile. I thought frankfurt school of finance and management would be a good idea but I dont see that same here much and the comments where I see FSFM mentioned, they dont talk very well about it compared to WHU or St Gallen. 

What I would want to be doing 2-3 years down the line is working at Munich ( where my bro and his fam live) with a very attractive compensation( a great paying job in the investments industry).  so which Msc Fin program would you guys suggest? (I'd like to work while studying so i could sustain the expenses/fees). 

feedback/suggestions are most welcome

on 10. Sorry for the inefficient post. do ask if you need more information

is it consider a good grade? top ten % or something like that? 

Btw, your profile is a bit subpar for an indian candidate: gmat range is too low for ur nationality (most of the guys from there score 720+), 2 no-name internships and that's about it.

It is an alright grade, actually I've been a subpar student all my life, never scored more than 70 during my school and I almost failed in my 11th and 12th. I've been improving my undergrad scores by a little. 1st sem - 6.8, 2nd sem - 7.2, 3rd - 7.1. If i manage to do well in my 5th and 6th sem, I could get the final GPA to 8. 

I'll work harder on the GMAT.

Do you think I have a chance for an internship at the well-known firms even if I'm from a low tier college?

I'm part of an active finance club and I do a lot of learning by myself. If I'm able to show it on my CV, do you think it would compensate for my grades/non-target internships?
