"All Application Deadlines are 17:00 GMT.
All decisions are sent out via email on the relevant stage decision deadline. Please note that decisions are occasionally sent out late into the evening GMT."
http://www.london.edu/programmes/mba/applying.html

Now how late is late into the evening? Would that be 6 pm GMT or 10 pm GMT?

oh you're right; copy-paste fail.

Thank you for submitting your application for a place on London Business School’s Full-time MBA Programme commencing in August 2013 (MBA2015).

Members of the MBA Admissions Committee have now carefully considered your application. It is with regret that we have been asked to inform you that they are not able to offer you a place on our MBA Programme this year.

Dinged also.

But I figured it out why by looking at other people who are dinged on this forum. Many of us have high GMAT and good GPA, so why did they ding us? Because LBS asked for "what other schools have you applied to" and we probably all put all the schools we applied to (which is usually quite a few). Adcom thinks that we will probably get accepted to other schools as well and will choose other schools over LBS. They want to keep their intake rate (% students who accept their offers) high so that it looks better on MBA rankings, so they rejected the people who will likely not accept their offers without even giving them an interview.

I dunno bro; I'd like to tell myself this as well, but if you check out the student profile page, there are some impressive folks listed there.

I think I just got beaten out fair and square, especially when I have very little international exposure.
