thanks! well I interviewed last thursday and heard back on the wednesday the week after (so roughly 4-5 working days). But that's because I interviewed in London. Apparently it may take longer for people who aren't interviewing in London to hear back.

Hello!

I wish to apply for LBS-MiM 2013 Class.

Profile Evaluation please!!

Age 21/Indian

GMAT (Q47 V33 AWA5.5) - 650
Undergrads - First class (expected), economics from top 5 uni. in UK
school - high avg (90%) in both year 10/12 (Indian system)
decent extra curricular
work exp - worked with start-up for 3 months

What are my chances for LBS MiM if I apply for round 2?

Thanks!


Your GMAT is under the course average so that may reduce your odds a bit. Have you considered retaking the GMAT and aiming for a 700+? But even with a 650 ur profile still seems really solid. They really do seem to like people who are well rounded.

Anyone have any idea when they post 2011's placement report? MBA's report just got posted and its pretty amazing. I just hope that 2011's placement was as good as 2010's.

Currently working on my apps right now hoping to send it in before Jan 31 deadline, would be a bit tight since i'll have to study and take the gmat too! Seems like they get back to you about acceptance / rejection within a month. Pretty fast.

Cynix, gratz on your acceptance. Seems like a very solid profile. What do you plan on doing between now and LBS in sept?

Well I didn't get the interview notification until over a month after my application. U've got a pretty solid profile I'm sure you have a good chance of getting an interview so don't worry about it. To be honest I wasn't even expecting to get an interview and was quite surprised when they notified me.

Thanks fathippo! :D. Well I'm still in uni and it's my third year so quite busy with my course. I'm planning on doing an internship over the summer before the MiM (if I'm lucky). I've submitted a couple internship applications for consultancy and have been invited to an assessment center for a financial advisory internship.

Just so you know I submitted my application really2 early (October 2) and they didn't start reviewing applications until November 1. I got my interview notification on November 16 so give or take 2-3 weeks before you hear back about the interview

Yes I applied extremely early because I wanted to get it done before getting busy with uni (final year so really need to concentrate on getting stellar marks) + wanted to be able to put LBS MiM in my CV early for summer 2012 internship applications.

Well my undergraduate degree was in Biomedical Science and was very clinically-oriented (kind of a pre-med course), not so much practical. And so far my knowledge of business is very limited. I'm thinking by doing another internship over summer 2012 and doing the LBS MiM I can probably land a better job once I graduate, compared to if I were to enter the job market right away. I'm hoping to get into consulting which is super competitive so having a combination of Imperial + LBS should probably help. I'm thinking it'll be a good combination cause it shows I can do both science and business. Plus I haven't done much networking here at Imperial and the LBS MiM really seems to have a big focus on career development, which should help loads.

Working on my app - gonne apply end of Jan. Writing the gmat in 19 days, quite nervous.

My stats are quite average, so MiM will be a crapshoot for me.

3.3/4 gpa - finished in 2.5 years instead of 4. Had to finish ASAP since parents didnt give me a dime for tuition or living expense. Worked throughout university.
Worked 4 internship - 1 in local non-profit, 1 in global bank, 1 in global tech company, 1 in boutique IB
Started 2 companies that failed miserably - made me broke twice lol!
Obviously, usual school stuff - clubs, volunteering, etc

Sah, I think your GMAT is a bit on the low side - avg gmat for MiM is 700, quite a bit higher than your 650. Thought about retaking and updating your gmat mark to lbs?

i understand my gmat score is lower than average, however i really had no time to study as i lead a 10 hour day with college and work eating into my day.
i barely got a week for the GMAT and I believe that in the situation, it was the best i could do, and i do not have time to give it again.

anyways, i had received an email on the 16th of December stating that due to the winter break and yearly school closing, the decision would be delayed to Jan.

im not sure if the final decision is delayed or the interview decision, either way, i guess i have one more week of hope left since the office re-opened on the 3rd.

You should have planned ahead knowing the importance of the GMAT; your post sounds like an excuse.

Hey everyone

I too received an admit from LBS for the MIM Class of 2013. Those of you who also received it can please search me out on fb and just ping me. Will add you to the FB group we have for MiM class of 2013.

Though I am really kicked about getting LBS, I have a few questions. Would be really helpful if anyone with info can help me out :

1. If for financial reasons one wants to defer the admit to the next year, is it possible ?
2. Did anyone get the results for the scholarship? How much is the scholarship worth ?
3. Any idea about the placement scenario for 2011 ?
4. What is an average ROI (return on investment) one can expect from the MiM course ?
5. Are the job opportunities after this course limited to London, or can one get placed around the world ?

Appreciate your time and advice..

Thanks a lot

Hey all,

I am preparing for the GMAT in order to get in LBS. I think I could have a decent GMAT score, though I don't think I'm fully prepared for the test. I was just wondering whether I should take the test next month in order to apply for R5, or practice more and take the test in march and apply at R6. Do I have fewer chances to get in if I wait for R6 ?

Could you also give me your thoughts on my profile:

French and Canadian, lived in Montreal for 18 years, lived in Bogota for 1 year, now finishing my postgraduate degree in one of the best schools in France. I have decent grades but there are not impressive. I speak French, English and Spanish fluently and a bit of Portuguese. Quite important extracurricular activities and internships.

I really count on my GMAT score to improve it.

Thank you
