LBS, master in financial analysis round 2 applications

Hi everyone. I am a student from Eastern Europe (non EU) planning on applying for the MFA program at LBS. I am still preparing for the GMAT and don't think I'll make it to round 1 unfortunately. So I'm looking at round 2 for admission, and I'd like to hear your thoughts. Does the process just become selective and difficult after round 1?

I haven't taken the GMAT yet, but my mock scores are ranging between 700-710 (Manhattan prep mocks). Quant is always at 49-51 but verbal is going to need some time. GPA is 16.8/20. I have internship experience in research. My company registered me for CFA level 1, which I will sit for in late November

I'm looking to score a 720-740 on the GMAT and then apply, hopefully before R2 deadline. What do you think?

Open to other suggestions beside LBS.
