I'm a second year student currently enrolled in a Bachelor of International Economics and Finance at Bocconi University in Milan and I am starting to look at some Msc programs (I will apply next year for the 2017 entry).
My profile is the following:
I expect to get the equivalent to a first class honours, GPA 30/30 in the Italian system.
I attended an LSE summer course in Finance during summer 2015 (Final grade A+).
I will spend a term (Sept-Dec 2016) as a visiting student at Warwick.
No great extracurricular activities.
No relevant internships.
Assuming that I will get an excellent GRE score and excellent reference letters what are my chances applying to LSE and Cambridge Msc in Finance and Economics?
Moreover, do you think I should apply to any other Msc program considering that with near certainty I will be admitted to Bocconi Msc Finance (which I would go to if I were rejected by LSE and Cambridge)?
Any advice or opinion is welcome.

From what I understand of the msc application process, extracurricular activities and internships hold little weight. They focus primarily on grades, standardised tests (GMAT/GRE) and reference letters from academics/past teachers. I can't speak for Oxford but you definitely have a strong chance of getting into lse.
