I think not many ppl are applying to LBS this year because of UK visa regulation change and loan unavailability for int'l students?

Please suggest a good admission consultant for LBS. Most of the consultants are US B'school centric.

Congrats,

Find some good admission consultant or alumni, who can take your mock interview(s).

Some info: http://www.clearadmit.com/wiki/index.ph ... nInterview

Actually, I am also looking for one for the complete LBS application process.

Good Luck

Drop us a line. We have a few people who have done LOTS of work with European schools. Our consultant Yaron has done quite a few Europe applications and has lived in several European countries, and has gotten amazing results with some very diverse people.

I believe people should not offer/take professional help while applying in colleges for education and i firmly believe that colleges should put efforts to stop this as well. It is very unfair to people who try to apply on their own as obviously they will not have so called tailored applications by professionals. We all want to go there(colleges) to acquire knowledge for a better future. If people can not write their own applications then i really doubt how they justify their right to have such an education.

LBS MBA Admission Coaching

Tearing your hair out over your LBS MBA application? No worry, this coaching service will definitely give you peace of mind and greatly enhance your chance of getting admitted.

For you, I will:
- Walk you through LBS MBA life and give you very insider view of every detail, e.g. how each term differs from the others, how your stream looks like, how your study group looks like
- Give you advice on the whole application process – GMAT, essay-writing, recommendations
- Give you a picture of the whole selection process – from application, to shortlisting, to interviews, to final offers
- Share with you critical things that the authority will never tell you when selecting candidates – do they compare an American with an Indian? Do they prioritize candidates based on GMAT?
- Review your essays – the MOST important part of all:
• Define your career goal so as to position yourself properly for “why MBA?”
• Map your profile with qualities that LBS looks for
• Suggest what clubs, events, competitions, courses, professors, internship, resources you should address in the essays to get aligned with your career goals
• Suggest what keywords you must put in the right place to touch the nerves of the authority, e.g. “diversity”
• Strategize your essays to highlight different aspects of your personal life, career, interests, personality, visions to fascinate the authority, who looks for diversity
• Share with you my application essays as an example. They are excellent but not perfect, I will tell you what I should have done better

Perhaps you might have done some research about LBS MBA, but I will help save your huge effort and time to google information for your essays. More importantly, my insight is the inquisition I experienced at LBS, which could never be googled in any websites. I am sure you will be impressive with your deep-dive understanding of LBS, which will definitely be taken as a token of sincerity. Your chance of getting admitted will be greatly increased.

Perhaps it’s the cliché that you’ve heard 100 times, I bet your application essays are the most critical stuff in the application process. If you are really passionate about an MBA, please do invest in your essays. Give your 100% or 0%, nothing allowed in between.

If interested, please email me by lbsmbacoaching-at-gmail-dot-com to know more. Mock interviews can also be discussed.

FREE profile evaluation with your CV and GMAT scores.

PS: A brief background about me:

Like most of you, I came from a very humble background – not from top US i-banks, not 3B1M consulting firms, not Fortune 500 corporations, but a rarely known local company in a developing country. My age is far above average and my career was purely local. Although I scored 740+ in GMAT (top 10% in LBS), I found, in hindsight, it had not added much value to my application. After all, I was accepted and offered a scholarship, based on my outstanding application essays to hit the bonus.

Has anyone actually interviewed yet? Mine is this afternoon (ahh!). I used clear admit to help prepare and I've had two other MBA interviews so far, so we'll see how it goes. The 1-2 hours is a bit intimidating.

Good luck!!
