Haha dont get your hopes up. The palace is just a facade. The real school campus is not that fancy apparently :)

this is just so wrong and annoying... all of you guys in the round 3 of MiM have got your decisions and I am still due to have my interview this week!!!! Just in case someone is interested in whats the reason for the delay: LBS couldn't locate a alum in the whole of Saudi Arabia to interview me... I said "anywhere, anyone in Saudi!" and the reply came,"we are still trying to locate someone!!!" Anyway they have found this guy in the Eastern Region, and guess what.. he's in the country for a week to do some consultancy and he has somehow agreed to fit me in for an interview... In the mean time LBS has admitted ppl in the MiM like its the end of the world... the last thing I want now is that they say we have run out of seats.. sorry...nice try... better luck next year... This will definitely be a tight finish or a real anti-climax (if I get dinged)!

Someone wish me luck, please!

If it makes you feel any better there is no cutoff for the size of the class. If you do well, you'll probably make it.

Good luck.

I have started getting a feel of things but one information that still eludes me is what kind of profile do these colleges want... I know that these colleges always look at the 'complete package' rather than just one aspect of it but somehow my gut feeling is that the decision criteria is generally based on your acads & recommendation....which is what discourages me from applying. Not that I have bad acads but was not a merit ranker or something nor I have a backing of some LBS or Harvard alumni. Do we have someone in this forum who's got an admit but doesn't agree to the same?


I concur with bsd_lover on this. My recommendations were pretty standard -- both of my recommenders had never heard of LBS previously, and I don't know any alums or current students. Furthermore, my academics were subpar (GPA barely above 3.00), though I think my GMAT counteracted that.

Thus, I do believe that work experience and essays can play a major factor in your candidacy -- especially if it can compensate for other areas. As mentioned, LBS has been known to invite candidates to retake the GMAT if the rest of their profile was impressive -- so it sounds like they really will evaluate the "complete package."


This site has been very inspiring & am really motivated to give the entire application my best shot without an iota of pessimism.

I am....But still haven't taken my GMAT date or anything. Will be drawing a timeline soon to chart out what needs to be done by when based on the college cut-off dates.

Good stuff Elderas. Take it easy during the interview. If possible, schedule it with an alum in your home city / country. Try to make it into a conversation and not a formal interview and just be yourself.

Good luck.

Is anyone applying in the last round for LBS ??



Was thinking about it. I've suddenly gotten keen on a UK MBA...

Emailed the adcom and they said candidates have an equal chance of being accepted in every round. I'm sure that is utter crap, but I figure I might as well send in an app and find out.

Hi Bokke - what they've told you is probably all hogwash. Especially since they've made a LOT of offers already.
Having said that, its not over yet. The very best of luck. We'd love to have another gmatclubber on board. When do they release interviews for R4 ?

Haha contrary to popular belief - I've never been to campus. But, most students tend to flat in the neighboring suburbs of Maida Vale, St. Johns Wood etc. Have a look in the Accommodation offered / wanted forums in the portal and do a bit of Google mapping to get a rough idea of the suburbs and the types of houses you are likely to find. There is also an extremely well written "survival guide" for london written by former LBS students. This document is available on the portal, read it well.

Good luck.

WHAT DO I DO?!?! HELP... how do i see the "documents", the "pics" and the "fun"?!?!?!?! Its sunday today and LBS is closed, which is why I am desperately asking for help here!!
