I applied last year in R2 and was waitlisted. A few weeks ago they asked me if I wanted to submit a letter and CV to the adcom to explain what had changed. I did but didn't put too much hope in it, and I found out on Thursday I got an offer!

Does anyone know when scholarship offers are sent? It's only a 1/5 chance and I can't imagine re-applicants are high on the list, so again not too hopeful!

Best of luck to everyone applying.
Joseph


Josephcambridge,
The first batch of scholarship is offered by end January. All the scholarships are offers by the June.

Hi All,

Need a quick help. I have a certificate from my university which states that English was the medium of Instruction.
However, i am not able to find any place on the application where i can upload the same.

I have sent an email to adcom but no reply yet. Tried calling them but getting message that All routes are busy..

Anyone has any idea where can we upload this document.

Wanted to submit my application today but kind of confused about this particular aspect

Why do I get the feeling that LBS is a tad slow in replying to queries? They also seem to be the only UK school who have not put out any POV/analysis of the visa issues.

If I were you, I would merge this certificate with the transcript and upload as one document in place of the transcript (only if the adcom does not reply at all).

They are definitely slow. I asked them few queries and got a response after more than a week. I asked them few more and no response yet. Same thing with alumni. The first person I contacted from the "Contact a student" page did not respond and later found that his name is taken off from the page. So I contacted another person and again no response yet.

Honestly I have till now contacted around 5 schools and this has been my worst experience.

Is it necessary to submit such a document. I did not find this requirement anywhere on the application.

It is highly recommended that you first confirm this with adcom before proceeding with your application in order to avoid any unpleasant surprises later. LBS is very understanding on this subject as I am witness to this.

It is not necessary if your transcript mentions that English was the medium of instruction.

Did y'all add your CV to the essay template? I just uploaded as a separate file.

The instructions of the essay template on what to do with your CV is unclear as to whether you should also include the CV in the essay template...

I am doing the same thing. Since they are giving a separate option to upload CV that should be it.

Same here! Uploading CV without attaching to essay template.
The application software is pretty neat (and detailed) but the essay template gives confusing instructions.

Why is LBS hell bent on giving out conflicting information?

A)
The referees section on MBA Applying page says: "You need to ask two people to be your referees: 1. your current employer (if you don't want to ask your employer to be a referee, a colleague is acceptable); 2. someone else who knows you well in a work context, for example a former employer or long-standing client."

B) However on the right side at the Manage Referees page in the application, they say:
One referee should be a current or previous employer, colleague, or someone else who knows you well at work.We understand that you may not want to give your current and immediate manager as a referee.

A) means that one recommendation MUST come from current employer, could be supervisor or otherwise; and second from former employer or client and so on.

B) means that both recommendations could be from previous employers.

My transcript doesn't state that and hence the reason i have an additional certificate stating the same.
Anyways, i got a reply from them stating that i can email the certificate directly and they'll take care of it.

Thanks for the help guys !!!

got a question about the length of the program. When they say 15months, does that include the few months of internship between year 1 and 2?
