MSc Finance LSE/Oxford/Imperial/Warwick

Hi guys, would appreciate some input on my changes to be accepted into the MSc Finance programmes at LSE, Oxford, Imperial and Warwick. Also, do you think I would be eligible for a scholarship at any of these schools? Tuition fees are quite hefty.

My profile:

  • 3.88/4.0 GPA from the best BSCH in my home country, top 3 Scandinavia, top 40 Europe. BSc Economics. Top grades in all quantitative courses. Writing a finance-related bachelor's thesis
  • GMAT 700
  • One year part-time work experience in a mid-sized retail bank (not very well-known)
  • Half-year exchange to a good BSCH in London (not LSE, Imperial, Warwick or Oxbridge, but right below)
  • Interned in London for six weeks doing ER at a large financial institution
  • Good and varied extracurriculars with leadership experience, none finance-related though
  • Teaching assistant in finance courses for undergraduates in the year below me
  • Might intern at Big 4 (consulting), IB or ER this summer

Check each uni website as scholarships vary by country or origin, % of fee coverage and requirements. For the academic excellence ones you may be eligible with your grades but double check each uni.

Thanks! I'll double check. Do you have any idea whether my profile is competitive for admission to LSE or Oxford? I assume those are a step up from Imperial and Warwick.
