Hey enigma123:

These types of situations can suck. You're trying to burn the candle at both ends, and getting a lukewarm reception with the GMAT.

None-the-less, I would the to apply to the executive program at London business school. The fact remains that executive programs have been hit hard by the economic downturn. A lot of companies have stopped sponsoring their "executives." Other senior manager types have not really had the opportunity to broach the question with their superiors. Everyone is worried about his or her job, or even perhaps their company going out of business. It's just has not been a good fit you or the "distraction" of an executive MBA.

So what does this mean for you? It means that admissions committees or executive programs – who have traditionally been very flexible in their admissions requirements – are now much more obliged to see the merits of your candidacy. I cannot speak specifically for the LBS executive admissions committee, but I believe that they are very much the same boat that I know other executive admissions committees are in.

Long story short, I think your chances are better than you believe. Definitely apply.

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
