February/ March too late to apply for top MSc programmes?
I have just finished my Bachelor's degree and would like to apply for a Master's programme (2022 intake). My preferred programmes are the MFA (LBS), MFE (Oxford), and MFin & PE (LSE). Unfortunately, I will not be able to prepare much for my GMAT before January because I have an internship coming up next month. As a result, I probably won't get my until the end of February. I am aware that this is a disadvantage since competition tends to increase at the end of admission cycles. Assuming that I prepare all other application materials before taking my GMAT, do I still have a chance to get into one of the programmes? Or is an application in March simply too late? Regarding my profile:
GPA: 5.4/6.0 (European target business school)
Experience: Big4, IB at an EB (Tier 1), MM PE (Tier 1)
Thanks in advance for your help.
