Ill be applying for round 2
sitting my GMAT end of October.
Has anyone got any idea on the range of GMAT scores that LBS is looking at.
I understand anything above 700 is helpful, but on their admissions page, they suggest
last years applicants had a range from 600-780.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?

There's going to be a Forbes blog which discusses the London Business School MBA in some detail. It will also include details of interview questions, advice on approaching the application essays, and a discussion of the typical financing and scholarship arrangements.

First instalment here:

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?


That doesn't include the internship. The 15 month program ends in December of the 2nd year, 18 months ends in March / April and 21 months ends in July. But it doesn't really matter what you indicate while at LBS because the tuition is the same for any length, and even if you chose the 21 month program you can still take your last classes in the Spring term of the 2nd year and start working in April if you want.

In the past years nobody was admitted with a GMAT score below 600. Hence, that's the unofficial cut off. The average was around 700.

What your score should be depends on the rest of your application (e.g. academic performance, work experience, nationality). But yes, anything above the average is helpful :-).

Hello! It seems that I won't be able to have everything ready for R2, so I will be applying for R3 instead. Do you think that there is any difference between these two rounds? Thanks for any input.

How much more competitive is R2 compared to R1? Are almost the same number of interview invites sent out in each round (R1,R2)? I am contemplating applying to LBS in R2.

Thanks!

Though the schools generally claim there is no difference in Round 1 or 2, I believe R1 has slight advantage. However, a good application should get you through in either rounds.

Ah ok thanks. I figured LBS was like other schools, roll out interview invites the week of -- didn't realize they were sending it out to everyone on the day of.

Thanks! :)
