Hello All,

I didn't Get any Email from LBS - I tried calling them , and no one picked up the call - What does it mean? Do you guys any delay in sending the status?

Thanks


Hi Rajmumfx,
About 10 days ago, they were quite responsive by email. I would have expected them to be also by phone. When did you try to contact them?

The last time i called them was on Friday last week

I just needed an answer - denied, wait listed or Accepted..

I saw another applicant in the same forum - had to go through the same difficulty -

Just a few observations based on reading the posts from the last couple days:

1. Wheretogo and ArnoldTW joined Gmatclub on Mar 30, 2012 and Mar 31, 2012, respectively;
2. Both Wheretogo and ArnoldTW had only 3 posts in total on gmatclub and all 'their' posts are in the LBS thread;
3. ArnoldTW consistently referred to things posted by Wheretogo;
4. Posts by both Wheretogo and ArnoldTW consist of similar grammar errors; and
5. We all know that LBS just released their R2 decision last Thurs and the waitlist process at LBS is extremely painful. In addition, the more admitted people who decided to turn down their offers, the higher chance waitlisters can get in.

Just my 2 cents.


ha, desperate times...as they say...interesting.

Scholarships update:
Talked to LBS today. If you didn't get a scholarship with the decision, then that means you haven't qualified for an automatic scholarship. The next scholarship review will be held in June.

Also, for the admit weekend, if you want to participate in the dinner, then you need to be in London on Friday evening, i.e. get to London on Thursday evening or Friday morning. On Sunday, activities normally wrap up around 2 PM.

Best!

Silently watching this discussion, I can't stop wondering how skewed are priorities for some applicants. The ultimate goal for any school is to develop a skillset of a student, which will help him pursue his career goals. There is not a single school which promises you great job with $xxx salary in Z country, is there? It is a consious choice of every single person - whether to go for a business education or not AND to which school trying to maximize value of the investment...

Yes, visa rules made career placement worse. BUT - is a business education ultimately designed to guarantee placement in the UK? NO. If you want to make an MBA or whatever degree for the sake of finding the job in the UK - it is wrong approach (imho) and in this case you should think well before investing $130k+ because degree is not a tool to change a job. It might work but might also not. If there are other reasons for making and MBA (e.g. enhancing your profile, closing the gaps in your competencies etc.) this will definitely pay off as it is designed to make you a better fit for complex jobs.


With all due respect, I beg to disagree laman :).

If one has an option to kill 2 birds with 1 stone, i.e. get a great education and also sort out their travel/work mobility issues, why not do it?

If you're from one of those under-privileged countries that need visas everywhere, like myself, you know how frustrating it can be!

Libraal,

Did they mention the scholarship attribution criteria?

Does anyone have info about the scholarships amount?

Cheers

No idea Pedpt, I didn't go into that level of detail as it was sufficient for me to know that I didn't get an automatic one.

They are in the process of compiling the offer packs, some of them are already there, however, it will take some time for them to send them out and due to Easter holidays we probably will only get them early next week. Now, they said that those in London are welcome to come and pick their offer packs.

UPD: Also asked about any updates on the HSBC loan and they had no news to share. The message for now is that applicants need to find their sources of funding. I hope that they sort something out, e.g. Prodigy finance scheme already mentioned here.

Hey Libraal,
Thx for the information. For the scholarship review in June, I assume it's for the ones that we have to apply seperately?

Hey Happyface,

No idea, I'll try calling them up tomorrow to clarify if I get time to do it. I suppose in June, there will be the review of all the non-automatic scholarship + whatever the balance left of the automatic scholarships after the R3 may get re-assessed. However, don't take my word for it - it's just an assumption.

June scholarship are so called ambassadorial scholarships which are awarded to exceptional candidates. To apply to those scholarships you need to submit an essay, typically explaining why you would be a good LBS ambassador, deadline is the first week of June with decisions released 2-3 weeks after the deadline... As MiF is very consistent with MBA, I guess similar thing applies here.

Any R1 admits can shed some light on the background check process at LBS? What company does LBS employ to conduct such verification? I need to inform my current employer so they can grant access to the appointed third party company.
Many thx!

Good luck for today, R3 applicants (tomorrow for most of you actually..) Is booking a haircut too presumptuous? Don't want to jinx myself :)
