Do I have a shot at LSE's MSc Finance and Accounting?

Hello everyone, I was wondering If I have a shot at LSE's MSc F&A:

  • Graduated with honors Magna Cum Laude, 86% average score (Around 3.2 GPA) at the top engineer school at my country

  • B.S. in Industrial Engineering

  • Strong finance and accounting grades (92% aprox) 

  • 3.5 years working experience at Ab Inbev (2 years as a planning and performance analyst, and 1.5 years in sales.

  • From a Third World Country in Central America (I mention this because "diversity")

  • Got into a finance extracurricular class after graduating

Now the Downside:

  • 650 GMAT  (with really really really bad Quant: 24 percentile/35 grade)

  • Just 1 finance, 2 accounting, 2 Economics classes  at university

 

I could repeat the GMAT but I will have to study and I would be reciving the score at the end of march, I don't know if the course is filled up by that time. hank you in advance for you help!

Take my reply with a pinch of salt as I've applied to the same course also but I probably wouldn't have submitted that GMAT score if I was you at from my research the average score at LSE is 690ish? However I'd say now you've submitted there's no point retaking as courses will most likely be filled by end of March. You just gotta hope for the best man good luck!

Thank you for your reply. I'm just wandering what is wrong with submitting it? I can still retake it, I haven't send my application yet, so perhaps I can repeat the GMAT on march and apply at the end of march? Thank you again for your help
