Yes, you can use it to write about something you have done that you feel especially proud about and that you want to share with the admissions committee. Best of luck.

Dear Conrad,
thank you very much.
Kind regards,
Maximiliano

Hi Conrad,

I have a question with the recommendation letter. Because we are a small office . If I ask my supervisor (direct or indirect) to write the letter for me, they will know my plan to leave the firm for MBA, and it will hurt my job responsibilities with the company. So, can I have a client or a senior professional from another firm who I had worked on the same project with to write the letter for me?


Thank you!

Yes that is totally fine. Just specify in the optional section where we ask for any other information that you have not asked your current supervisor for precisely those reasons.

Hi Conrad

I have read on your website that a total score above 630 is competitive. Would a score of 670(Q43,V39) supplement my 3.2 GPA?

Hi,
Do you have any restriction with respect to max age for admitting students? I was working as a Captain on Merchant Ships, and now I'm planning to do a MBA for shifting to a different profession. I'll be 39 years old in the year 2017 when I am planning to start my MBA.

MKSINGH124 We don't have a maximum age for applicants. In the past, we have had students who were older than you when they started the course. The key thing is for you to articulate what you hope to achieve with an MBA, given that you have already accumulated considerable work experience.

Hi Conrad,

Are campus interviews with major consulting firms exclusive (invite only)? Does that mean GMAT plays a huge part in who gets the interview or who doesn't?

Admission to consulting firms is competitive. some firms will look at your GMAT but a high GMAT by itself would not guarantee an offer. The quality of your work experience, you critical thinking, personal impact and your personal/professional accomplishments would matter more.

Hi Conrad, Many thanks for your reply. I have read at quite a few threads on this forums that it is incredibly to get an interview invite with a score of less than 700 (or may be 730 in some cases) at top consulting firms such as Bain, Mckinsey and BCG.

Is that the case in your experience at Judge?

I don't know if the firms you mentioned explicitly state their minimum GMATs but it is true that the vast majority of people they eventually recruit have GMATs higher than 700. This is not to say that a 700 plus GMAT is sufficient but it is the case that they are looking for people with strong analytical skills who can work under time pressure and this type of profile would be expected to flourish in GMAT. Moreover, this type of profile loves the challenge of solving tough mental problems under time pressure, which again explains why they do well on the GMAT. If you are not that type of profile, you would find the GMAT a chore, and the consulting environment would not be right for you.

Hello Conrad,

Is it too early to ask about the effect of "Brexit" on admission/placements of Judge Business School ?

It "seems" that lot of companies might plan to move out of London if UK doesn't get access to single market and UK doesn't agree to freedom of movement within EU .

Are you people bracing yourself for some change in the number of applicants and post MBA placements situations etc ?

Regards,
A

Thanks for the question. It is too early to say what the impact, whether positive or negative, is for the applications/placements for the Cambridge MBA. At this point, we are seeing a much higher number of candidates who have accepted MBA 2016 offers and paid their reservation fees than at the same time in previous years. We have also seen a higher percentage of MBA2015s who have accepted job offers than at the same time in previous years.

While it is difficult to say what the impact will be, the Cambridge MBA prepares our students for global careers and we are confident that by building on that foundation, the Cambridge MBA will continue to attract top candidates who can, with lots of hard work, secure top careers.

Hi

The admission portals "Work Experience" page says "Please indicate the total number of years of full-time post-graduation work experience you will have completed by the Programme start date" Please clarify whether work experience after graduation (Bachelors degree) or after post-graduation (Masters degree) is to be entered....

Regards

Corporate. The number of years of work experience is measured from your time of Bachelors graduation till the time you would start the MBA

Hi Conrad,

I have a few professional qualifications and over 7 years of work experience in senior management, but I have no undergraduate degree. My GMAT is 700, but that was with a week's preparation and I'm trying again in mid-December (this time with more focused studying). Given my lack of a degree, will the strengths of the other components of my application be able to render my candidacy as competitive as any other?

Thanks and best,
Karan

Hi Conrad,

I'm mulling an application to the Judge program, and like to ask if the program has its 3.3 gpa as a hard benchmark. I've got a 2.98/4.0 from an American-style university, but have a 710 GMAT, as well as 3y work experience in the public accounting/investment banking industry . Does my low gpa severely disadvantage me? Should I refrain from applying?

You can still apply but you should make some mention in your application about the reasons behind the low GPA. If you are invited for interview, you will have to perform above avareage at the interview stage as well.

Hope that helps.

Conrad
