I think it will be same as with the interview decisions. LBS is always very sharp on the deadlines. But this last day of waiting is always the worst

On Current Employment Page:

Hey there buddy.
Well the first thing to keep in mind is that the application form is like any other part of your application (Resume. Essays. etc.) in that IN ADDITION to answering the question, this is a great opportinity for you to promote yourself (which should explain some of the logic behind my answers....)

Now on to your questions, piece by piece:

1. What's your organisation's main area of activity?:
Am I supposed to describe my internal team or the overall business?

Whichever is better for you. Meaning if you are in a unique and rare and very demanded niche, you should definitely be mentioning that rather than the overall business. If there is nothing special, then go with the overall industry. (If you mention the niche, you should ALSO mention the overall, after all the question asks for your ORGANISATION)

2. Number of Employees:
Am I supposed to describe my internal team or the overall business?

Seems to be asking for overall

On the Previous Employment page:
Number of Employees:
Am I supposed to describe my internal team or the overall business?

Overall

Education
Do you feel that your academic performance so far gives an accurate indication of your potential for success on the programme? If so, why? If not, why not?
Would you explain a 3.5?

No!!!! That would seem very nitpicky.

Tell the truth, trying to make yourself as interesting and diverse seeming as possible. Sport, culture, business, hobbies, etc. Get as much interesting stuff as you can,

We encourage applicants to take into consideration the impact of study on family and friends. Who have you discussed your plans with, and what was the response? Feel free to give the names of members of the school community (alumni, students, faculty, staff etc) as appropriate.*

Again, you should be telling the truth here. They do want to see of course 1. that your family/significant other/friend are very supportive 2. that you have some connection with the LBS community. 3. You can also consider showing how you doing LBS will impact their lives positively as well

Which other schools have you applied to?

Here normally I recommend to write all the schools that are not obviously better. So since LBS is one of the best in Europe, you shouldn't have too much fo a problem here. If you were applying to HBS or Stanford I might omit them from the answer.

Hope this helps dude...

FYI to those interested in visiting a class @ LBS: I emailed them to find out when class visits would resume this fall, and was told that they would begin 'mid-October'.

Not the greatest news for those of us who haven't visited and want to apply in R1 (I believe traditionally the R1 deadline has also been mid-October).

sniper LBS has a partnership with HSBC to provide student loans to international students. Theoretically upto 50K GBP can be borrowed, however, realistically (and also due to the crisis) only 40K is usually being approved. This loan can be paired with other loans from the applicants' home countries (such as Stafford loans for US citizens).

Hi all!

I'll be applying in R1 but I've started working on the essays because it seems as though they change very slightly from year to year. I'd love a second (and third, fourth, fifth, etc) pair of eyes to look at them once I'm done so shoot me a PM if you're interested!

Some background: 24/F, will be 26 with 3 years of experience in sales and marketing at matriculation (assuming I get in, of course!); was born in Poland but lived in Kuwait, France, and the States until the end of high school. Went to university in Bangladesh and majored in English Literature (GPA: 3.58); GMAT: 760. While the bulk of my international experience is literally based on the first 18 odd years of my life abroad, I've also had a substantial amount of intl work experience during my two years in this company as we have to attend seminars every 6 months with colleagues from all over the globe to work and bond.

Goal: To break into consulting!

Question for the lucky ducks who've been admitted this year: I understand you're automatically considered for some of the need/merit based scholarships upon admission, but can you still apply for the external scholarships (i.e. Goldman Sachs, Booz Allen Hamilton, etc) whose deadlines are in June? Does the "one scholarship" rule apply only to LBS funded scholarships? Thanks!

I can obtain letters from my other colleagues (one of them being a manager that I worked under but did not directly report to). _________________ Life with the GMAT: Jerome: Ben, c'est 20 secondes de plus qu'hier sur le meme parcours!

I'm in for round one too. Hoping for a better outcome the second time around. I applied back in 2007, got waitlisted and eventually dinged. Looking back, I think it was because of my low quant score (I scored a 690 overall, but only in the 63rd percentile for quant) and my non-traditional work background (government). With two more years under my belt and solid progress on the work side, I'm hoping for better news this cycle. Best of luck to everyone.
