Wow, still no details on the interview, here in Canada. Has anyone else in Canada received interview details? Or even in the rest of North America?? Thanks.


@ Yogotiger: I'm from northern Canada and I received my interview details on Tuesday. I hope you receive yours soon!

@KAS: I hope this gets to you in time. Regarding bringing a notepad, from my experience in interviews, it's not a good idea to have notes on what to say and look at them during the interview. Firstly, there just isn't enough time to do that and secondly, it doesn't look good on your preparation. It is certainly acceptable to bring in an empty notepad in case the interviewer gives you some tips about what to do next such as scholarships to go for, residences to consider and people to contact.

One thing that has helped me in the past is to write down on a piece of paper 6 qualities that you want to get across such as Leadership, Athleticism, Open-mindedness etc and make sure you answer all of those during the interview.

Gluck with your interview KAS!

I do not really know what the admissions office would regard as more important for R5. I prepared for the GMAT in 5 days (I know, I'm so irresponsible! That's why I got 650!)) and spent 2.5 days for the essays (I know, very little time, but I sent the application 2 hours before the deadline!) and I got an interview. So, or most of the people get an interview for the MiM programme, or what makes you get an interview is a DIFFERENT background. They stress the DIVERSITY issue very much, so I guess you would have to sell a distinctive point about yourself that no other candidate offers! By the way, can't you make the GMAT before and apply for R4?

I had my interview today. While I think it went well, you can never really tell. My interviewer was really nice and all in all it was pretty casual. The only thing I'm a little worried about is if I could have given a few answers that were more specific. Of course, even though I prepared for the interview, on my way home I suddenly remembered two examples that would have been great answers to his questions. I just had completely forgotten about them until then. It lasted the whole hour and it flew by so I left without getting the opportunity to mention a few things, but I guess you can't fit everything in. The largest part of the interview focused on Why LBS? Why now? What do I think I can gain from it? I'm keeping my fingers crossed but the more time passes since my interviewer the more I'm second guessing myself. I'm hoping I didn't say anything that could've been misinterpreted. It's going to be a long few weeks.

Hi to everyone,

I just took a look what the MIM program offers and I have two questions. First, is there any real chance of getting a scholarship since the tuition is quite high for my standard, and Two, is this program connected to the CEMS Master in International Management.

Thanks in advance :)

Rockjock, I'm not sure if applying in R5 means you should aim for a higher gmat score (>700). That being said, I think even that's completely possible with only 40 days of preparation if you spend the majority of your waking time studying (I'm talking about >10 hours a day).

I studied for a little less than 2 months (1 3/4 months), but only about 3 weeks of that was full time. I began during my christmas holidays in December, and put in about 10 hours a day. After school resumed in the beginning of January, I could only do maybe 40 hours a week for the next month. I took my GMAT on February 1st.

How are your math and english skills as they stand? I would suggest that you focus your time on the official guide questions. There is a definitely a pattern in their questions, so doing past problems will be really helpful in familiarizing yourself with the specific skill set (so to speak) that you will need to ace the GMAT. You should supplement the questions with a more comprehensive study guide like Kaplan or manhattan gmat (keep in mind that MGMAT is really time consuming, and in my opinion, only the math section was useful).

Good luck and don't let nay-sayers make you doubt yourself! I had many people around me telling me that I didn't have enough time while I was prepping. Many others in the GMATclub foum have studied for only a week ( :shock: ), a month etc and have still obtained amazing scores. In the end,everyone has different abilities and you know your own ability and studying style the best.

Hey KAS1986,
Thanks for sharing your experience with us. Congrats on finishing the interview alive! It must be a great burden off your shoulders. Try not to second guess your answers now - If you had a good feeling about it coming out of the interview, I'm sure it went well :)

If you have any trouble with Math I would highly recommend the EZ Solutions GMAT series. I did some of the verbal questions in the GMAT Guide and read over a few sample essay answers and that was about all the studying I did for verbal since I knew I wouldn't have an issue with that. However, I hadn't taken a math class since Calculus I & II in my senior year of high school (2003-2004). EZ Solutions has a workbook for each area tested on the GMAT (arithmetic, geometry, word problems, etc) as well as a Basic and Advanced Workbook. It's much more like a math textbook with each topic broken down into sections followed by practice problems to test your knowledge. I studied part time for about 3 or 4 weeks and this series is the only reason I got through the math section on the exam. You can usually find a full set of the books used on Ebay, which is where I got mine.

Hi atanasovd,

I understand that roughly 15-20% percent of the students in the class are awarded with a merit based partial sponsorship from LBS. You could contact the current MiM students/admissions office who would be able to guide you better in this matter.
IMO, it would be wise not to depend only upon the scholarship provided by LBS. Interestingly, I also understand that the govt. funding for LBS and other institutes in UK is getting reduced this year, which definitely would not help the cause any bit. -> http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/c8189922-322d-11df-b4e2-00144feabdc0.html
Of course, you could try for other sponsorship sources and in that case your probability of getting them depends on numerous factors which vary accordingly.
And to your second question, I don't think both these programmes are connected.

Hey KAS1987, that's very good advice. All I did for the verbal section was the questions in the official guide as well. I started off trying to do the MGMAT guidebooks, but I found the extensive grammatical explanations to be superfluous and a waste of my time - I quit after 5 pages. The official guide is really useful, because as i mentioned before there is a real pattern to GMAT questions and what they can test. I could see my verbal score improving dramatically in the span of a week as I worked through the questions On the real day, I could see with amazing clarity what the right answer was for each question (it was almost like the answers were just popping out at me) .

In terms of the essays, I also looked only at 2 sample essays on the day of my GMAT, one of each type. I never practiced them, against sensible advice (too lazy), and was still able to get a 5.5 on my essays just by following the standard "format" for 6.0 essays (you can find those online as well if you just do a google search)

Good luck rockjock! I hope you ace it :)

Hey KAS, I was wondering how LBS or their alumni contacted you about the interview?
I'm located in Ontario, Canada and I still haven't received any word about the interview.
Thanks!

They contacted me by e-mail. I'm surprised you haven't heard anything since they need all the feedback by the 30th. My interviewer was actually based in Canada, but was travelling to his company's Cambridge office.

I just had my interview! I have to say it didn't go very well... it was all about Why LBS? Why not other school? Why MiM? Strenghts? Weakness? How do you handle stress? Plan B? I think my English sucked and... I just didn't know where to fit in all I have prepared! But well, it is over :) Outcome, next week!

btw @KAS1986, did you have the presentation question? Because I did not and I am a bit worried about this!

@ kitsune: I think the presentation question is only for the MBA interviews. Your interview sounds very similar to mine. The majority of the questions were about Why LBS? What are the advantages/disadvantages of the other programs you applied to? Strengths/Weaknesses, What will be the most difficult part of the program for you? It was very conversational. He was German so he told me a lot about his undergrad in Germany and we discussed how the American university system differs (he also attended Harvard, which coincidentally was where we had our interview). We also talked about the alumni network and career center, because I asked him what he thought the recruitment prospects were for Media. There was also the standard question of give an example of a conflict you faced in school and in work. I definitely could've been more specific there, and he did follow up with asking if my coworkers ever had a personal issue with me taking charge in the situation I mentioned. (We were all stressed w/one another at the time, so probably a little bit, but we're all very close friends now). He definitely threw some tricky questions my way, including some that I think were testing my integrity/honesty. For instance, he asked me why I didn't lie to my employers and take a full time position I was just offered and quit in a few months rather than telling them about my grad school plans. We also discussed my financial situation. He finished by saying he thought the program would be a good investment for me, which I'm hoping is a good sign, but who knows? It lasted about an hour, but it flew by.

ETA: I think part of the reason the questions are so generic is because the interviewers did not go through the MiM themselves and because it's a pre-experience program. We did discuss the teaching style and workload of LBS in general and some of the faculty, but other than that, the alumni probably can't give too much program specific information.

Yeah... seems like mine. I had the impression she had not read my application... after 20minutes she told me... "so from what you are saying, you want to go into organizational performance consulting?" and I was like... ehhh that's the only think I talk about in my application! lol! But she had notes everywhere! So dunno... maybe just to check I had written it?! Now we only have to wait! :D (good to hear you didn't have the presentation part lol!)

I also interpreted from what she said that a lot of people were interviewed...

Hey guys, thank you for sharing your interview experiences - I hope you hear some good news in a week!

Yogotiger and myself both finally got contacted for the interview. Apparently they had a lot of trouble finding an interviewer in Toronto, Canada. :| My interview is going to take place this weekend or early next week (before Wednesday). To be honest, I'm quite nervous... I never used to be anxious about interviews but I was recently grilled terribly at a case interview for a top consulting firm, and this may have brought down my interview confidence quite a bit :( . I really hope it goes smoothly this time.

Good luck to Yogotiger and anyone else who has an their interview coming up :-D

Hey guys,

Thank you for sharing your interview experiences with all of us here. Hoping you guys hear the best in a week's time.

Meanwhile, I received my interview details finally from LBS yesterday. I am in the process of setting up the interview with the alumni sometime next week. I was somewhat confident before I got the details of the interviewer. Just did a random profile search on the interviewer and I should say that I am totally nervous now. This person has an amazing/stellar profile and works in the senior management level. He has more than 15 years of WE. I was fully overawed on seeing the details of his profile. A profile that is near perfect and totally intimidating. But I should say that I fully appreciate LBS for the effort that has gone in selecting this interviewer. His profile matches my background/future goals to the tee. I guess I need to be near spotless in the interview to make an impact to someone of his stature. While I write the last line my hands are shivering. :shock:
