Hi I have recently applied to MsC Investments & Wealth Management at Imperial, MSc Finance at LSE & Warwick and MSc Finance and Investment at CASS.

I have a 80% GPA (ari from University of Leeds Accounting and Finance. Including very high scores in quant modules (97% in mathematics for business, 86% in Financial Mathematics). I also took as many finance and quant electives as I possibly could.

I won several academic awards:
- Scholarship for top 10 course performers for 3 consecutive years
- Dean Prize
- Best financial analsis score (dissertation alternative)

I also have the first 2 levels of CIMA, scoring 100% in my F1 examination and grades in the 80% throughout.

I also have been on the exec committee for several societies at my University. Basic self taught knowledge of HTML and Java.

I have not taken the GMAT and do not intend to.

Currently on a 2 year corporate finance graduate program and about to finish, going to change and pursue a career in asset management

Warwick have offered me a place, and a 50% scholarship. CASS have also made me an offer with a 5k scholarship.

I was wondering what people think my odds are for getting into Imperial or LSE?

Thanks

No one can predict that. You have to apply and see. You seem to be well rounded in terms of academics and professional experience/qualifications but it also comes down to your application. refs and of course the competition.
