I made my interview last week, better than I was expecting. I hold an offer from MSc Management in Imperial? Can somebody states the differences between the schools? Imperial was first in FT however, LBS is not eligible for the ranking yet. Imperial has some pathways, LBS has more reputation and selectiveness. I am confused...

In addition, is there anybody who got an offer with an GMAT condition?

Hi everyone,

I'm finishing up my penultimate year at my university and I was wondering if I can get some feedback about my chances for getting an offer for LBS MiM. Here's my profile:

GPA: 3.83/4.00 after 6 semesters at small semi-selective school in U.S.
Degrees: BBA in Finance & Bachelor of Accountancy
GMAT: I have not taken it yet, but I'm getting 680-700 on practice tests.
Internship: 9 months at boutique private equity firm

In the fall I'm going to apply to Masters programs at LBS, LSE, and HEC Paris. Do I have a shot at any of these? Many thanks for your feedback!

Mine came as long as my interviewer sent the form. However, interviewers have 2 weeks to send the form.

If you had an interview at lbs its should take a week. If you had it via Skype or at another country it would take 2 or 3 weeks

Rejected. Oh well I gues it's off to LSE for me. A few things to say. If ur goal is banking... Don't tell them. This year only 20% got a banking job. Also if your non-euro your chances are slim to none. Out of all the Asian candidates I talked with none have been able to secure a position in the UK. 60% so far for people with an offer (whole program). Out of the Asian two are working in banking, but in China and they're working with local funds. If your German and want to work for big 3 consulting then your chances are decent. Most of the applicants got a job in Germany and Italy.

Hi guys,

I'm a graduate of the MiM program at LBS (class of 2011). Feel free to reach out if you have any questions about the course. And I'm not sure what this nonsense about needing to be wary of Lisa Mortini is, but she's really cool. If you want to come to LBS, you need to know what you have to offer and why you want to come here, but any interviewer will ask you those things. No need to be extra wary of Lisa :-)

For all the admits, welcome to the LBS family. Everyone else, good luck with your applications!

do not focus entirely on your GMAT. Mine was extremely low. However, I had many other things to offer and I got accepted.

I got GMAT 620 and I have just received an offer.

For LBS, their class average is 685, with the range 600-780. They suggested a score of 700 is seen as competitive.
Anyway I applied 4th July, I was then offered an interview on 24th July. And today 30th July now I have just received an offer.
I agree with many who said GMAT is only a part, I would say it accounts for 10% of everything they consider.
If I were to suggest anything, if you get anything above 680, don't worry about retaking. Instead, spend more time on researching and putting together your application essays.

Hi guys. I am keen on the Masters in Management programme scheduled to begin in Sept 2014. I have done my Bachelor of Commerce from H.R college ( University of Mumbai ) and scored 86% ( which is quite good ). Also i am completing part 1 of Masters in Commerce to get 16 years of education ( required for Imperial ). Also i am a Chartered Accountant having cleared all my exams in the first attempt. The Chartered Accountancy course has a compulsory 3 year articleship/internship as a part of the academic course which i had undertaken for 3 years with Deloitte which basically means i have interned for 3 years ( not sure if this qualifies as work exp ). Also , i was a director in the Rotaract Club of Bombay Hill South where i was awarded with the best creative director award for the year 2009 - 2010. In my opinion i also have a very good record of co-curricular activities. I have just started with my GMAT class. Just wanted to know when is it the best time to apply and what score should i roughly be looking at to compliment by profile to get me in. Also with the profile that i have what are my chances of getting accepted if my GMAT scores turn out to be good.Also , Is imperial a better option ? FT rankings say so. Just wanted a heads up guys. Hoping for a reply from someone looking at MiM 2014 or an alumni. Thanks

I wanted to get my profile reviewed for the MiM/MMS/MSc Management programs out there.

Ill state all that I can in bullets for now.


I want to apply to :
1. Duke
2. UV M Comm
3. LBS
4. LSE
5. HEC Paris
6. CEMS ( Confused every mediocre student )
7. Imperial College

As you can notice Im going for the brand here and Im sure that the placements they have are better than what my college does.
I am looking to stay in the US/UK with my job for a few years before pursuing an ExecMBA/PhD depending on where I want to place myself.
Money -- Willing to take up a loan of upto 80 lacs.

Profile:

Age :20
Indian National
BE Comp Sci from Manipal University
Graduating in 2014 July. Expected CGPA of 7+

Experience :
Internship with Ernst&Young ( Management Consulting arm - 2 months )
Two Startups cofounded. Both Pvt Ltd now. Not so impressive balance sheets
IT Sector & Manufacturing (3D Printers). Have had decent clientele.
Active in this sphere for 2 years now.

Founding member of a Not for profit trust chaired by Ex Alcatel Asia CEO.


Have my 8th semester internship left. Can be a research or industry based one as well.
Plan to apply once I have completed. Will pursue other interests / job for a year till the results are out.

I want to be a management consultant ( read pseudo intellectual at McKinsey )

LORs not an issue. Lot of people love me.

GMAT : Will apply only after I cross 720.

Big question :
Can I Make it?

Hi,

would you know if LBS admits applicants with a little lower than the minimum requirement GPA of 2.1? or are they very straight forward about this that if you don't meet the 2.1 then you are out?

thanks
Sandy
