Hey Rish,

I'd recommend you to look into this link: https://www.imperial.ac.uk/business-sch ... deadlines/

13th December is not the application deadline, but rather the announcement of whether you're admitted or not :) So your next deadline would be R3, which is 24th Jan.

Hope that helps!

Dont worry too much abt it. It's pretty much the "career goals" essay but in video form :) if you know where you want to go and what you want to do after MBA, you shouldn't face too much of a problem.

What is the usual turnaround time though? To hear back from Imperial after one is through with the entire process (that is video interview as well as skype interview)?

Anyone else?


Hi,
Yes I got a mail which read as follows.

The Admissions Committee have reviewed your application, and unfortunately we are not able to offer you a place at this time, due to the high level of competition for the programme. We are however able to offer you a place on the waiting list, in order to reconsider your application as part of our second admissions round. Decisions will be released by the close of business on Friday 13 December 2019.

At this point in the year, we are not able to provide any details of the likelihood of being accepted onto the programme, or your ranking within the waiting list. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the time and effort that you have put in to your application and interview, and we hope that you choose to take up your place on the waiting list.

So I have accepted the offer for waiting list.
But dont know whether it is a denial.

Experts please share some knowledge.????

Posted from my mobile device


I received the same reply.
Waitlisting doesn't necessarily mean denial.
Schools want to form the best and brightest cohorts. So getting waitlisted especially in Round 1, isn't really uncommon.
They want to see what the applicant pool in the second round is like and then make a decision.
This also helps them evaluate people who really want to pick their school as the first preference. Some might take up another offer meanwhile.

So don't worry too much. You can still get in! :)




Hi suramya26 and Rahulchabbra.
Did you guys get to know the decision for your waitlist in the second round?

I heard they ask for any additional information to strengthen the application. Or did they just inform you that you're waitlisted? If so, may I know how you strengthened your application? Like did you write 2-3 points in the reply mail to them or write another sop and attach it?

It essentially asks whether you have done proper in-depth research on what it takes to get into your target companies/industry and how Imperial MBA can help you get there.

Are we supposed to write the skills that we have developed or learnt from our past experiences?

Hey there. Imperial admit with scholarship here. Narenn is right: they just want to see if you've done your homework in researching the skills needed for your targeted career goal and if you already have the foundation for aforesaid skills.

This was what I wrote for two of the criterias. Note that I redacted a few bits and pieces for privacy purposes.

"Ability to work in a cross-cultural environment, working with people from different nations, disciplines and backgrounds. In my current role, I collaborate daily with [function name] from not only in [country name], but all over [region name], especially [country names], and with commercial teams globally, especially those based in [country names], on new business opportunities. I have worked with them through various crisis & firefighting situations, and implemented new initiatives hand-in-hand."

And another one was:

"Given my interest in [career goal 1 and 2], transition execution and change management are two important competencies. In my [career], I have had two chances of managing large changes: [Project 1 and its description] and [Project 2 and its description]."

Hope that helps!
