Don't know about GPA range - but taken straight from the LBS's website here is what they say about GMAT.

"Our average for the Class of MBA2012 is 701 with a range of 600-780. However, the GMAT is just one of several admission criteria. Just as a high score does not guarantee admission, a below average score does not eliminate a candidate. You must ensure that your GMAT score is still valid on the 1 September for the year you will be matriculating. GMAT scores are valid for five years from the date you take the test. For example, for the class beginning in 2011, we will only accept GMAT scores obtained since 1 September 2006."

I would assume the GPA is less of a factor due to most applicants' work experience.

Nobody knows your "chances". Its a vague question, with an even more vague answer. Do your best, write good essays, take extension courses if you're really concerned and throw yourself into the mix.

You're a good candidate, take the plunge if you like LBS and see what happens.

Where can I check the application status for LBS? Has anyone got any confirmation that they will be considered for R1?

I guess its because R1 folks are waiting and R2 folks haven't started on the app yet. I am applying for R2 and I will start only in Nov. What about you? :)

hey!

I applied in R1! Waiting like crazy for nov 5! I google every single day for news about R1-2013 interviews!

Is it possible to receive the interview invitation earlier than nov 5?

good luck!

The website says "Interview decision sent on" so going off that they should be releasing all invites on the 5th and not any sooner. I doubt we're going to find any news before 11/5 so better to forget about it and just pretend you haven't even applied. Time will go by a lot faster that way!

It looks like a lot of the folks who applied to Yale also applied to LBS. I guess that's a good thing since everyone will choose one over the other and not step on each others' toes too much! 8-)

Just curious where you got this from? I was hoping LBS' peer group to be INSEAD, CBS, Chicago... :-)

Apart from LBS, I'm applying to Wharton/Chicago/NYU/Ross and if I don't get in to any of these then INSEAD for Jan 2012 intake.

Submitted LBS in R1 on 10/02/2010 too.

I am also applying to CBS, Chicago, Tuck, INSEAD and Wharton Lauder.

If i can not get through anywhere in R1 then Oxbridge, Ross, NYU are on cards!!

staind please add my details to the spreadsheets also.

P.s.: As a "local" LBS obviously is the cheapest option!!

I am very worried - when I clicked submit, I thought they would ask to review the whole application again. They did not and I realized I have a few gaps in my application and some things I wanted to change.
I emailed them about it and they said they'll just let the admissions team know. My essays are good I feel, I put a lot of work into them but I don't know, there are a few questions in the application I would have answered differently / included more details.
LBS is by far my first choice and I don't know, I feel I could have made a few changes, added more details that would have provided more details about my experiences and activities.

Apparently I didn't upload a copy of my GMAT report. They e-mailed me and asked for it. I cant believe I missed such a simple thing. Attention to detail....check.

you mean you didn't self report your scores cause they don't ask for a copy of the report, they just ask you to input your scores and then send the official scores through GMAC, correct??

Nope I self reported, but I guess I overlooked the report upload. They were looking for the actual copy of my report, so I e-mailed that. There's an upload for the GMAT report on the application, right?
