Guys,

I haven't asked yet... first decided to meet up with an LBS alumni on Thursday in preparation of my interview... I will also ask him some more questions about LBS and hopefully get an even better idea of the school. If I still can't make a decision, then I will contact ESADE next week to ask for an extension.

I e-mailed two people who interviewed with me on the 30.10.2009 and neither of them has heard anything from ESADE... I thought you might be interested in that. Also, after my interview with ESADE I just e-mailed the admin office and asked when I could expect to hear from the... and they told me. :) They are very nice... and this is the reason why I am hesitant to ask for an extension!

Good luck and keep me posted!

wow - that's interesting! do you think it's a case of getting back quickly to successful candidates and not so quickly to dings? that will make bajargyan and me a bit more nervous while we wait! :? good idea re finding out a bit more from your LBS contact. by the way, if he gives you some good tips, can you post them on the LBS thread? :)

bajargyan - like you I am still waiting. They have put me in touch with a current student so I can ask more direct questions about life at the school - will do that over the next few days. I'm quite keen on going to Bcn for their next open day (27 Nov) but obviously wouldn't like to go if they reject me - so for the moment I'm waiting.

Well.. i hope what you are saying vgeri is not true.. :?

I wonder how they are going to evaluate someone based on a telephone interview.. but as it is.. i hope they are more like really contemplating than already rejected us... if they had then i think they would have told us so..
I did ask the interviewer by when i should expect the result..and she told me it should be within 2 weeks.. so from the day of the interview i am into my second week..so i guess anytime now i should hear.

Vgeri i think you will know the response before Nov. 27th.

I don't think they decided already. What I assume is that because I have got a very unusual profile (researcher), it was easier for them to decide as by nature only a handful of scientist (if that) apply every year...

I wouldn't be worried too much and I am sure they will let you know before the 27th. However, I will be in Barcelona as well on the weekend of the 27th...

If I get good tips and ideas from my LBS contact then I will post them on the LBS thread...

Congratulations bajargyan!! Thats a great news. I am sure you would be relieved and extremely happy. 5 days to go before i interview. I'm starting to get a bit nervous as this would be my first B-school admissions interview. I heard ESADE's interviews are very friendly and are targeted to learn more about the applicant as a person. I hope this is case with mine too. Anyways will find out. I will update this thread with my experience this time next week.
Till then peace out everybody.

hi beckee, thanks for the congrats! I'm glad to hear you decided to apply! good luck with your essays!


btw I am seriously leaning towards Esade now regardless of what might happen with LBS. My gf and I are very keen on taking on the adventure of moving to Spain for a year and a half. I am going over to Bcn on the 27th for the open day, and will be making a decision after that...

vgeri... these are exactly my thoughts, plus I was really impressed by the school... as I mentioned, I will be in barcelona as well on the 27th, maybe we'll meet... :-D

I called my admin officer from ESADE yesterday regarding the extension and she said that this year hardly any extensions get granted since ESADE is a small business school and since they already had more applications than ever before... she suggested that I write an e-mail to the admin director which I am going to do today... however, she said that she would do the same thing if in my shoes...

will keep you posted

hi everybody,

my request for an extension of the deposit deadline was denied saying that they do not provide extensions for admitted candidates... they would be happy to put me on the waiting list and once I came to a conclusion they would re-evaluate my candidacy... however, at that point a lot will depend on demand and space availability and a place cannot be guaranteed anymore... :cry:

now I am none the wiser and still don't know what to do :?

oh no... that's not very good news. :? hmmm. now it becomes a really tough call. I think what I said before now really becomes relevant: you have to decide which school you would prefer regardless of admin decision. If ESADE, then easy. If you definitely prefer LBS, then you have to ask whether you're willing to take the risk. If your interview is before the 27th, then at least you'll have a feeling of how it went?

all this applies to me as well by the way... I think I know my decision but will take a little longer to think about it...

I just wanted to let everyone know that I had my interview with LBS - I think it went ok and it was very relaxed. However, after having thought about everything I made a decision :o. I think that ESADE is a great fit for me and I decided to accept. How exciting!!

Good luck with the application everyone... hope to meet you in Barcelona. :wink:
