Hello to all the fellow applicants! :)
And a big thank you to all the current MIM students for helping out! :)
Really nice to see so much info on the MIM course here.
I am planning to apply for the sept'11 intake.

I have a question-
The online application asks the name of an LBS alumni recommender. This has to be filled only if either of the 2 recommendations are from an LBS alum , right?

Also, do the essays take a long time? I have just one month left so i am freaking out a little!! :(

Thanks a lot!

Hello m27,

I guess that section is to put the same of a LBS alumni that you know that would recommend you. If you don't REALLY know anyone from LBS, just leave it blank.

I did my application over a weekend. So, obviously with one month you have plenty of time! Make sure you answer what you have been asked for! I find it easier to write essays about an exact question than an open "motivation essay"... but it depends on you. Anyway, the sooner you start, the better so you can have it reviewed by friends/professionals/family...

Hey Kitsune,

Is there any way of knowing what questions are put up to the referees?
They are given on the website for the MBA and the MiF programs, but I could not find anything for MIM.
Are they more or less the same?

Thanks!!

Some very impressive statistics and some very impressive employers. Many congratulations to the MiM class.

Hopefully we, MiM2011, will do at least as good...

There are already people with offers from Nomura, Societe Generale, Bain, AT Kearney, Accenture... let's see how it goes!

The only way to know is for your referee to tell you. I don't think anyone should tell you even if they knew... (Terms&Conditions stuff...)

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone could let me know what they think of my profile for the MIM. Im currently 20 and in a top 30 undergrad US business program. My GPA is a 3.7 but im in the honors college and graduate in a total of 3 years. Im in a few groups and have some interesting hobbies but i recently took the GMATs and totally bombed the math section giving me a 660 overall which made me pretty nervous. What do you think? Does anyone know how heavily they will weight the GMAT? Do i still have a chance?

There is immense info on this site, thanks for all who shared.

I got some questions about LBS and a slight detour to match it w an other school.

1) Can a current student at LBS be the alumni recommender?

2) Would a 600-650 GMAT range be put on the bottom of the app pile? I havent taken it, but according to GRE scores I dont see myself ripping 700+ in a month of prep until the February round..

3) I got into LSE's MiM 2yr program last yr which I deferred.. 2 yrs is too long, i will grow old before i finish it.. However, anyone has any takes on the LBS MiM-LSE MiM comparison?

4) The main question: Duke MMS vs LBS MiM?? These two seem the cream of the MiM degrees, and Duke is present now in many locations. However, what is Durham, NC???

THANK YOU

The deadline for the second admission stage was only yesterday, and I barely made it in time. Have a lot of folks here handed in yours for the second round?

Could anyone shed some light on the weight of various application sections? i.e. undergraduate grade, work/internship experience, quality of essay, gmat score, impression at interviews (should one get through to the interview stage)

And to those Chinese applicants, have a wonderful Year of Rabbit ^@^

Hey hslee,

I also just barely managed to submit my application in r2.
Not very sure about the weight given to the sections. But from what can be figured out from the previous posts,
I think its basically the entire profile. Essays seem to be quite important whereas GMAT marks above a certain point don't seem to matter much. It is basically a qualifying exam I guess.

good luck to you and all fellow r2 applicants :)

Hey guys,

I just realized that the year of internship that I have written on my CV is incorrect. Even though the one I have mentioned on the online app form is correct.
Should I mail them the corrected one now? Is it likely to interfere with the interview decision which is due out tomorrow?
I have no idea how I could make such a mistake! :(
Please advise.

Hi guys! I am currently doing my applications for MiMs and I am applying at LSE, LBS, Imperial, City, HEC and ESSEC for 2011.

Here is my profile:
20 - F - French
Undergrad: University of Reading, Management and Business Administration: probably good 2:1 maybe first
GMAT: 710
Not EXTENSIVE extracurricular activities but good.
2 small internships of a little less than two months

How does my profile fit the schools I have applied for?

Also, could you tell me which way to go with those 2 questions about essays. What they are looking for excatly. I have researched information on websites but I would like your advice too guys.


Question 4 (400 words)
Student involvement is an extremely important part of the Masters in Management experience and this is reflected in the character of all London Business School students on campus. How do you see yourself playing a larger part in the life of the School and the Masters in Management student community during your studies?


Question 5 (300 words)
What will be your biggest contribution to the Masters in Management?

Thank you very much for your help and for the very useful topic!

Good luck to you all

Hey gagou143,

You seem to have a really good profile. Given your high GMAT score >700 you should qualify for an interview at most institutions given that you can demonstrate in the essays that you among others have potential, drive and ambitions.

It is hard to tell what adcom look for in the essays, as they try to build classes with many different competences and usually with a high degree of diversity. Hence, you should focus on your USP – what makes you unique? You have to bear in mind that many of the other applicants in the pool have just as impressive resumes and grade transcripts as you…but you are undoubtedly different from one another.

There are some pretty good advice to gain through some posts on this forum and the like.

Again, admission is somewhat of a science hehe… 

Cheers and good luck,

MRHDK1
