Well in my case, I was admitted at Booth and LBS. It is a tough decision to make. Both of them are great schools.

My post career objectives are to work in London / Europe / Middle East so I tend to think that LBS is the better choice. But Booth has a such strong momentum in its history and the better brand internationally (?).

What do you think guys?


Shooot! Congrats!

That is a tough choice though.
I don't think there's any clear answer, nor that anyone can predict which direction your life would go if you went to one and not the other. But it's probably wise to think that wherever you go, you'll be most likely there for the next 4-5 years at least!!! So think about that

What are people's opinions on LBS vs Ross / Kellogg for jobs in Industry in the Operations Management / Production Strategy fields (without considering location) ?

I know LBS is more finance oriented and am concerned about learning opportunities in these fields in LBS.. Ross and Kellogg have course content more geared towards these fields...

but then LBS is arguably of a higher reputation than the US schools I have mentioned above (at least outside the US)...School rep vs course content ???? Dilemma...


In most cases (including yours) I'd go with school rep over course content. I find that the only time course contact/location/networking is more important than rep is in highly specialized industries. so like, if you were in Media/Film UCLA and USC might be better than Tuck/Kellogg even though they are outranked...

Just made the R2 deadline. Question for the rest of you. The essays mention that you can upload a separate sheet explaining any gaps in employment. I didn't see any prompt for it before submitting. Is there anyway I can send them a brief para explaining the gap without harming my app, or too late?

do share! How awesome is it ?

Note: this forum is not very lively... any more hopeful R2 applicants like me?
How long did it take in average for the R1 applicants out there to get interview invites? Do they wait for their deadline to send all invites, or do they come out before?

thanks!

I'm a hopeful R2 applicant :) Hoping the answer to your question is that they wait until the deadline to send invites so I don't have to stress until Feb 8....

I received my interview invite early morning (US eastern time) the day before the deadline, but I don't think that's a rule. You should assume no earlier than the deadline.

And - Lonely Planet guide to London + cool neoprene case/sleeve thing in the LBS colors! Something to look forward to :)

Did anyone else in the NYC area get the invite from Oliver Ashby to attend drinks with LBS admissions and alumni next week? I'm trying to gauge how vital it is to attend as I'm supposed to be traveling so I need to decide if I should cancel my trip :/ Anyone who knows anything, please share!!!!

Is this a sign that demand for MBA's is down YoY every school i've applied to seems to have a quieter message board. Well either that or people are bored of GMAT club!!

I am a hopefully R2er. Went to the insights evening and they really sold me the school. Sitting here with fingers and toes crossed until Feb 8th

Hello, jordanshl,
From just my curiosity, which school are you applying as you mentioned every school that you applied has a quieter board now?

Thank you in advance.

Hi All,

I am a round 2 applicant and have a question on support letters.

I know a current MBA student and approached him during my application process. I read on the internet that London Busines School invites feedback from its students.

I am not sure if its too late to send the feedback and will it impact my chances negatively?
