Hi everyone,

I got notified on the 15th of March that I had made it to the interview stage of round 3. Has anyone from round 3 received the details of their interview yet?

I'm very excited at the moment to have gotten this far, and am looking forward to the opportunity to have a personal discussion about my candidacy!

Some notes on myself:

Age 23
Male
British
BA Hons from University of Warwick in German and Business Studies
GMAT - 750 Q47 V47
Quite an international background as a result of a parent working in the diplomatic service, and German, French, Spanish skills
Mostly sport extra curriculars - football in particular
Had a translation internship during my gap year in Berlin, also spent 3 months volunteeing in Costa Rica that year.
Worked in the Finance department of Anglo American (Mining) in Luxembourg for a total of 6 weeks over 2 summers

Very much hoping to move into Investment Banking after graduating from LBS. Anyone with a similar background looking for the same?


Hello James,

Nice profile. Here's mine...

21/m/american
I was notified for an interview for round 3 as well
BA Hons Marketing, International Business, Spanish.
GMAT 660
Various extracurriculars and internships. I also manage a website.

Im still undecided on what i wish to do. I like strategy consulting and brand management thus far. I am responding because I am curious if you have received your interview details yet?

It has been a week for me and I still havent received my interview date/location... And I;m getting slightly worried.
Any insights

Nope still haven't received my details so don't worry! I'm sure they will come in due course. It's just more time to prepare I suppose!

Hi Everyone,

I am extremely keen on the London Business School MIM Program.
Unfortunately I took the gmat a week ago and scored a 540 (Q:35, V:28)
I am debating whether I should study for another month and retake the gmat.
But this means that I will be applying in the last round (5th round) for applications.
Will applying in last round slim my chances down a lot?

Here is the rest of my profile:
Graduate from a Top-Tier University In Engineering: GPA 3.00
Did a 4.5 year program where I did 9 months of two full time internships (So graduated with almost a year of experience)
Currently been working for 3 months.

Should I apply now with a low score, or improve my score and apply in the 5th round,
This is my top choice, and I am extremely keen on this program!

Hi aceguy ! You should definitely retake the gmat. 540 won't get you an inerview !! I would say that with what you shared of your profile, you need a 650 or more to have a shot !!! I know it sound like a lot but study hard and I am sure you can get it ! good luck !1

Hi Davfrench,
Thanks yes, I'm definitely going to take the gmat again, aim for a much higher score!
Just wanted to clarify, do they still accept a significant number of applicants in their last round of applications?
Also, when I took the gmat i had my scores reported to the school, which I couldnt stop from being sent, will that affect my chances, since i still haven't applied?

They do accept applicants in round 5. It is harder to get in because if they already accepted 2 or 3 people with a similar profile to yours, for the sake of diversity they might reject you. But the admission team mentioned that they wait list people to make sure they have enough spot until the end to accept applicant.
For the GMAT, do not worry about it, they only consider your higher score at LBS, they do not average your scores.
Good luck,

Hey, guys

I'll be really grateful to you, if you could help sort out my query. I completed my Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Sciences from a top university for the program in my country in November 2010. After completion of the program, I started working in a market analytics firm, from Feb-2011. So, as of now I have 3 months of work ex. I wish to apply in R-2 for Sept 2012 session for MIM. Someone mentioned earlier, that applicants who have completed their undergrad in 2010, can't apply for 2012 intake. Is this true? Could someone please shed some light on this aspect.

Thanks and Regards,
suya

:) Buddy, I was referring to Class of 2013 or basically the batch that commences in Sept-2012. Yours would be Sept-2011 commencement of programme/ Class of 2012. So, with my undergrad having ended in Nov-2010, and proper full time work ex started in Feb-2011, can I aim or eligible to apply in R2 for the target session? BTW big congrats on making it!!

Thanks and Regards,
Suya

Ah my mistake. In order to be eligible you need to have less than a year's worth of full time work experience. So if you continued working all the way up until you applied you wouldn't be allowed to take part. But I suppose you could stop working at the 12 month mark and pursue something else for a while, like volunteering or travelling? That would probably help your application in a way too.

:) Everything you want on a platter don't you. Point no 1-4 have been discussed at many points earlier in this thread or other LBS threads. I presume you didn't bother to sit down and do some homework. How about working for few years, and getting leverage from your BITS degree and then going in for MBA, with the aid of GMAT. I am sure you are aware of the fact that MIM isn't a substitute of MBA, and invariably down the line you have to do. No one can guarantee you a placement in London or other EU location. They are not a placement agency, you learn the skills and make the most out of it. Even if you come back to India, why do you doubt yourself to make good use of MIM. They definitely don't sell it as a passport to an international job. Rest is your take on this.

Thanks and Regards,

Hello,

I have a first class degree in Business and Management from Top-20 UK Universities. Also during my studies I prepared a Business plan, pitched it to Angel Investors, obtained funding, turned a profit, kept records, payed taxes and currently in the process of selling the company. GMAT to be given next month, but I am optimistic to get 700+.

My main interest lies in entrepreneurship and after my masters I want to join a start up company whose idea I believe in.

Do you think MIM will serve well for students interested in entrepreneurship? Is it easy to get in touch with good start up companies after the course?

Also will my entrepreneurship experience be treated as an extracurricular activity by the admission team?

With my profile will I be able to make a competitive application?

Thanx for doing this.
