How to stand out on Masters Application

So basically from scrolling miles and miles of WSO i have come across a lot of target masters but those that have stood out to me to get into banking are:

LSE MSF, OXFORD MFE, LBS MFA ( don't start a debate please)

I am a undergrad student(accounting and finance)  at a non target but have top of top grades, a high gmat , and relevant experiences in finance though not in IB. So my question is how can I further improve my profile to make myself stand out and get into these top programs I have time on my hand so please help a monke out.

Research each program and find out specific facets of the school that make them unique. Then drop specific call-outs in these facets in your essays.

For example vandy's msfin has the pre-3 program which is basically recruiting/networking prep before you start the program. This would be something to reference in an essay to show you've done your research
