If it calms any waitlister's nerves, I got an acceptance email but I am unlikely to accept it. So that's another spot to you!

is it correct to assume that the quota for each admitted student that opts out of LBS is passed on to a waitlister or are we all just strung along and compared to the next round's applicants - if we fit the bill more so than a R3 applicant and serve an under represented group then we're accepted? i'm not sure it's correct to think that for each applicant that's admitted and chooses not to attend, one waitlister is offered admission...that's all. thoughts? and as always - best of luck to all waitlisters!

I was just reading the old 2010, 2011 Waitlist threads on gmatclub... It seems to me that this year's waitlist thread is surprisingly quiet..... does that mean not many ppl are on the waitlist????

And I noticed that on the tracker feed - there are only 9 ppl on the list so far this year....... I dont know how representative that is.... but, anyhow, I feel this year we could have better chance of getting into the program....

Just my two cents....

What you guys think?

as much as i want to think this, i'm not sure it's true...who knows how many LBS applicants simply don't appear on GMAT Club...however, I am tempted to believe that the HBS loan controversy might have an affect on decreasing the number of accepted applicants that actually agree to matriculate...thoughts?

I actually agree with the loan controversy would have an affect on things.

I don't know how difficult for ppls from EU countries and UK to secure financing, but in Canada, student loan is pretty easy to obtain, also bank line of credit is easy to apply for. I am hoping that there will be more applicants drop off due to financing issues (sry to the admitted folks....), so I could have better chance to get in.

Anyways, good luck to all here waiting... but I guess the best solution to the problem is to seek out other alternatives at this point.

Apart from this, the visa issues may drive many non-EU people away.

Interesting this is that I too am interested in entrepreneurship. 17th May is the next target.

Anyone planning to retake GMAT?

Hi Someone79,

I think your GMAT score is just fine.....730 is well above the average....

Thanks, nacyrio.
Belonging to a 1.2 billion strong nation, I really am not that above average in the pool I belong to. Is there anyone here who is 30+ and is in waitlist?

It was announced a while back that UKBA is closing the Tier 1 (Post-study work) route from Apr'12 but I don't think this has impacted number of applications to LBS. General belief is that companies will sponsor the visa although it is becoming increasingly difficult.

happy new year guys!
just wanted to check if anyone had mailed adcom and received feedback or planned any school visits?

Hey duffman - I visited the school back in November. Also, I just re-took the GMAT and sent in my new scores to the adcom.

Hi LSSMBA,

I just got waitlisted in Round 2... next review date is May 17th.....

So LBS let u send in a new GMAT score??? Do you think higher score matters here??

Sorry for my super late reply, nacyrio! I just saw your post!

I'm not sure whether or not a higher GMAT will help at this point because technically everyone waitlisted already meets LBS's credentials to be a student. However, I was so frustrated when I first got waitlisted, I had to do something to help myself. Also, INSEAD recommended that I retake my GMAT, so I figured that's my weakest link. Apparently a higher GMAT did not help me during the first WL review for LBS...

R2 applicant still on the waitlist - next review is July 4th. Independence day!

FYI - not sure what affect it had on my profile but I raised my GMAT score from 660 to 710 during the the waitlist period.

Best of luck all!

Hey alexander I had sent an update mail (although I sent it to the wrong person) with details of a new project I'm working on and extension of some other projects. I'm still waitlisted so don't think it really helped!

Congrats happyface. Can you share if your bf did anything special to get in.

Hi All! Is it possible for an Indian applicant to secure a visa and start the session on time if admission is confirmed on July 4th?
