Enkie did you get your interviewer's details fast? I got my invitation on Dec 1 and still hadn't heard from them. Taking into consideration that I need to travel to make the interview... Or I'm at the edge of nerveous breakdown because of this time that passes ssssoooo slowly ;)


Are you a R1 or R2 applicant? Dec 1 seems kind of late to get an interview invitation. I got my invitation on Nov 4 and received interviewer details by Nov 8.

Where are you located?

Don't forget that I'm MiF applicant, not MBA :) as per web-site interview decisionfor R2 should be sent by Dec 9, and I got it ahead of the deadline, on Dec 1. I'm located in Azerbaijan, Baku, interview will be in Instanbul... I struggle to find any R1 MiF to share experience it seems that MiFs are much more quiet than MBAs.

Ahhhh ok that makes a lot of sense. Oh then I would say you should be receiving details in a few days. MiFs are probably less active in this forum since this forum is very much MBA-centric. Congratulations on your interview invite! When you talk to your admission coordinator, also ask him/her what date the interview needs to conclude by (I found it helpful to know when my interviewer had to delay the interview).

Sorry everyone, a new comer question on LBS. Different from other schools, LBS MBA admits students in 4 rounds. Does it make difference if I apply for round 2 or round 3 in terms of the chance/competitiveness to be in? Moreover, my GMAT is very low (700) and I am not sure I have profile as good as enkie to compensate the low score.

Thank you Weber, that is really nice of you to say. I don't believe 700 is low and I will tell you why. 700 is the AVERAGE for LBS, which means there are plenty who are below that score. And in my opinion, a high score doesnt guarantee you in, but a LOW score definitely keeps you out. However, 700 is definitely not a low score -- as long as you hit average, then gmat is not a reason for your application to be discounted. A friend of mine has 680, and she is currently interviewing with Harvard, Stanford and Columbia. So it's all about your essays. Putting some real thought and passion into your essays I believe makes all the difference. Don't feel discouraged! :)

Very impressive as usual. I am really hoping to be able to secure employment in UK, but with the impending econ crisis in Europe...hmmm sketchy sketchy prospects for those without EU work authorization.

Securing employment in UK should not be a problem for non-EU residents. I was reading (don't remember where) an interview given by Fiona Sandford (LBS's career services director) wherein she mentioned that LBS graduates who were placed on campus will not count towards the quota in place for UK work visas. I do hope I understood that correctly.

Even otherwise, if one is looking to work in UK or EU post MBA then there is no better place than LBS for completing one's MBA.

If this is the case, UK seems better than France. Here in Paris we recruited a HEC MBA but his work permit was rejected because French interior ministry issued in May 2011 the new rules to limit the work permits for foreigners (la circulaire du 31 mai de Claude Guéant)

Hi everyone, do you know if there are any differences in seats available and admission rate for different rounds? I am trying to catch up with the second round but if I can only submit for round 3, do I have less chance to be admitted? I wrote a mail to LBS but no reply...
Thanks!!!!!!

I had the same question some time ago, but the School replied that generally they do not make any difference between applicants in different rounds. LBS has also a "great" wait-list policy: if they are not sure that you're the perfect fit for them even in R1 they can put you on WL and keep there until R4 to be sure that they get the best from the pool of available candidates. So basicly it is all about people rather than filling allocated spaces in some concrete manner. The only true difference between R1/2/3 and 4 applicants is that R4 have much less chances for the scholarships if not none at all.

Submitted LBS R2. hope for the best.

there were 3200 applications last year for LBS MBA. the number rocketed to the roof. I wonder what the acceptance rate can be for LBS nowadays.

40% x 40% rule works here?

Well, it seems that they would like to admit you but they are not sure whether your English is good enough. I would say that all depends on that phone call. :) If you managed to prove that everything is alright with your English, you should be fine.

Hi Weber

I would definetely advice you to apply in R2 rather than R3. Although they say it is the same, there are much more available seets at R2 than R3.
I think you gmat score is very good. I know of people being accepted at LBS with much lower scores. Write some good essays and you should be fine.

Good luck!
