Hey guys! Just found out about this program pretty recently, and have a few questions:

1. What are the dates for the different application rounds? Is this posted on a website somewhere? On the LBS website (http://www.london.edu/programmes/msc/applying.html) it just says that it's a rolling admissions process with a May 31 application deadline.

2. Is an interview a requirement for admission? I am a US applicant, so would they interview me on Skype or something if it is required?

3. What would be the total cost of the program? Tuition seems to be ~25k for 2012-13, but I have no idea what the cost of living is as a student in London. If someone with experience could chime in on that, I'd really appreciate it =]

Thanks in advance for all the help! Congrats to those who have already been accepted, and good luck to those who are still applying or interviewing!

Hi.

1. There used to be a round every month, but now they changed it into a rolling admissions system without separate rounds. This happened recently.
2. Yes. An interview is necessary. Maybe they will interview you in the US, but they might also ask to travel to London.
3. tuition 25k and the cost of living would be around 1k pounds per month on average, so the total cost is around 37k pounds.

Anyone who is coming to new delhi for the interview on 5/6/7th March? Also all the people who were interviewed prior to this post, any tips on how to go about for the interview prep? Any specific words of advice would be useful. I have my interview on this 6th. Also those who got admitted? How long did you get to know after your interview about the final decision?

As I have already mentioned, the interview was very tough and unpleasant. Therefore, if you happen to be in an interview with Lisa Mortini be prepared. Current LBS students told me that she's very hard to handle too after the interview.

Besides, if you have written that you want to go into investment banking, be even more prepared. The job market is tough. LBS wants to be sure that you will be able to find a job. Therefore, one of the main aspects that you have to prepare for is about your future position. You must be ready to tell in what position, and in what exact company you see yourself afterwards. Moreover, you have to know what your tasks in that position will be. Apart of that, it is also important to know a lot about LBS, about the MiM course and everything associated with it.

thanks, I really appreciate the advice. Do you remember specific questions? Have you applied/heard from other schools?

Is the interviewer communicated in advance?

Yes, you know the interviewer before going to London. As I have already mentioned, beware if it's Lisa Mortini. The questions are usual, as can be found in other topics. Why LBS, why MiM, have you read business news recently, or what was your favorite class during your undergraduate degree.

My problem was that some questions were given in a tricky way and they were not very clear. However, the most difficult part was getting another question regarding the answer. It was really challenging. For example, when she asked me about any article that I have read recently, I started speaking about an article that I have read where the author describes that in the US outstanding student loans discourage banks from lending to graduates; therefore, a recent MBA or a PhD with a salary of lets say $120k and a student loan of $110k can not buy a house. Thus, the RE market suffers from it.

After telling that, the interviewer asked me "and how come that is business news? I see only a problem for students". Then I started explaining, and so on. And after every explanation, I was questioned "So?". Only in the end, when I proved that the RE market is an important factor of the whole economy, she managed to tell me "Good".

All other questions were in a similar manner too :)

thanks man I really appreciate it. That was a tough interview, I'm really sorry.

Quite strange though, usually LBS interviews are said to be more like friendly conversations.

Thought I'd share my story and through this help those still going through the application process and also meet individuals who plan on going to LBS this September.

I am a Canadian resident having graduated from the University of Toronto in Medical Radiation Science just under a year ago. With intentions of going into a career in healthcare management I was offered admissions into the MiM Class of 2013 at LBS.

My interview took place in Toronto two weeks ago and just yesterday I was offered a spot.

The interview was pretty laid back and more conversational in nature.

What exactly do you want to do? Quite a bit of a difference between the two.

Hey guys,

I sent my application to the LBS, like 10 days ago. I just wonder how much time do they take processing the applications and shortlisting for interviews.

Thanks
