In!!! With scholarship!!

For those on the waitlist, this will be a spot open for you as I'm heading to HBS. London was my first choice from a realistic chance of getting it, but I just can't say no to HBS.

Best of luck to you all!

@esdykes: did the email mention that you received a scholarship specifically?

It did - totally not expected. They did ask me to get back to them quickly so that they could offer the money to someone else, so I wouldn't say that hopes are dashed if you did not receive mention of scholarship in the admit email.

Congrats Nutsngum!!!

Now that I know my decision, I'll report on the interview I had for my LBS Round 1 application.

My interview seems to have been different than every other LBS interview report I read. Going in, I was very prepared to speak about my background, my leadership experiences and why I wanted to go to LBS, but he threw me off with questions to test my business knowledge and knowledge about the world. He asked me two questions about me: why MBA/why LBS and what type of int'l work experience I have. After that, my interviewer asked me a bunch of other questions, including:

What is the current price of oil?
What was the DOW at today?
Where do you get your news? What do you think of the future of the publishing industry?
Do you think the price of gold will go up? Why?
What do you think the future of Syria will look like?
What is the fiscal cliff?
What happened in China last week?
Who's the prime minister of Britain?

This went on for about 45 minutes. Then he also gave me a consulting case study:

How many quarters would it take to fill up our room and would that be taller than the future World Trade Center if you stacked them all up?

My presentation, I think went ok. It was about whether companies need to have integrity with their consumers.

I felt flustered and don't think I really talked about myself that much. He did say at certain points that he just wanted to see how I think and it was ok that I didn't know answers to some of his questions, so that comforted me a little.

But I'm guessing my performance in the interview played a large part in my ding notice today.

I'm really bummed about the ding. It will take me a while to get over this.

Does anyone know how open LBS would be to deferring the initial deposit payment until the 2nd round deadline? Or are they pretty strict against things like that?

Not sure about LBS specifically, but in general business schools are very reluctant to this. The reason is that they will admit R2 candidates based on who they already have for sure from R1. They like to have a diverse class in every sense. Anyway, asking will not hurt!
