    Sorry the last course is MSC finance Warwick

    Hello,

    I am an undergraduate of BSc Accounting Finance and Management at a top ten university in the United kingdom..I am currently on a 2.1 but I am aiming to get it up to a First by graduation..2011

    I am applying to the three universities and I was wondering if anyone who applied to the course for 2010 and got in can give some advice.
    I am planning to do GMAT by November and hand in my applications by December..

    Any help will be very much appreciated I am aware that these are very competitive universities and places are limited..

    if there are others applying to these courses as well we could discuss about it..

    hope to get responses.

    I can give you some advice about the cambridge MPhil programme as I got accepted for this year. Unfortunately, your chances to get accepted with a 2.1 are very low. Even if you manage to get a First by graduation, your application will just show the average you have at the moment, so it is unlikely that you will get a conditional offer. The programme is heavily oversubscribed. Something like 25 places for over 1000 applicants of whom the majority has a First.

    Its very competitive to get into Mphil finance/msc lse/ without a first.

    its very very competitive.

    Btw, I'm studying Msc Finance at Imperial, and I can tell you that the competition is really really fierce this year..the admission rate is somewhat similar to LSE's and everybody in the course have a 1st class honours degree...

    So the admissions rate is around 3%? :lol:....that means imperial must have got over 4000 applicants for its 100-150 odd places. :rofl:

    you're also forgetting that LSE has more than 4 courses with the name "Finance" in it, hence is able to play with its admission stats.
    Msc Finance and Accounting
    Msc Finance
    Msc Finance and Economics
    Msc Finance and Private Equity

    also..

    Msc Finance and real estate....

    Accounting and Finance is a course run by the Accounting department. Anyways compare like for like, not different courses. I just dont know how Imperial can charge a higher fees for its finance course than LSE when only roughly 50% of its graduates get a job.

    Because there are lot of suckers who are ready to pay. Especially the international ones who are trying to get their fingers in the London IB industry. :yep:
