Don't quote me on this but I think the number of MBA2014 should be ppl with offers, not ppl who have already decided to matriculate.

You don't see the irony and intellectual dishonesty in that statement?

First you tried to sequester candid discussion by attacking the posters rather than the argument. Then when someone disagree with your disagreement you claim "respect diverse opinion." Where was that political-correct sentiment and faux-respect before?

I'm sure you have done your own due diligence. Do you mind sharing that and discuss why you believe differently?

I also did my own due diligence and found similar sentiment to the other posters. However, I would like to add that the people I spoke to had misplaced expectation and hence the disgruntled attitude. If you care about LBS then you care about getting people who are the best fit not aimlessly promote the brand.

LBS is very much a finance school and unsurprisingly does not do as well in a finance-led recession. That doesn't take away from the school. Stanford had similar issues during the tech-bust.

The bigger picture and conclusion is embracing diversity. You never know what industry is going to be hot. Being a school heavily invested in any sector is just a bad idea. Perhaps the school mis-manged a little and went long on finance and didn't hedge. So maybe you can draw that the school is not as "diverse" industry-wise as it should be and/or it leads others to believe. Then the natural question is, what is the school doing about it?

I think discussion is better than mindless bashing or promoting. You do realize that your statement is the opposite-end equivalency of the people you tried to undermine right?

i dont know who's right but those discussions are good. having been through the process, there's a ton of marketing you have to cut through. to hear candid criticism is very helpful. i don't know why there's an implicit rule in not criticizing schools.

sometimes things are what they are and its helpful for people coming into this to know the full story. expectation managed so they won't be resentful. i think it behoves LBS that potential students are having this type of discussion and doing research.


Those are just my observations and it's up to you as how you judge. We carry different brain cells so it's no surprise that we see things from a different perspective and I respect that.

1) My argument is not contradictory. When I said 'respect different perspectives', I meant I respected the fact that YOU (not the posters) carry different views than I do. If you misinterpreted, I apologize for the confusion;
2) I did not attack the posters. I laid out my observations and I left it to the readers to think and evaluate the validity of the statements made by the posters, and decide whatever they believe in;
3) It's totally fine that we don't share the some point of view regarding the legitimacy of the posts and I appreciate your honest opinion and candid evaluation of schools.
4) Good luck with business school.

Hello everybody, to those invited to interview has anybody of you received interview details by the alumni?

I got a notification by the School that I will be invited to interview but hadn't heard anything from them since then.

these are definitely people with offers, as they add people to the portal as soon as they send the offers. do you have to pay a commitment fee? MiFs are removed when they do not pay commitment fee indicating acceptance of the offer, does the same thing apply for MBAs?

Typically how many days would you wait before contacting lbs if your future interviewer has not responded in the email message?
Thanks in advance.

My admissions correspondent mentioned interviewers had to hand back their evaluation on or before the 27th (next Friday). Personally, I would contact LBS right now, as only 10 days remain before the deadline.

Just hoping the 2012 applicants could provide some advice. I'm looking to understand when I should expect to see the 2013 application questions released? When were they for the previous year?

Thanks!
