Hi guys

Quick question - how much are you typically writing for the in-application questions (eg. what are your interests outside of work etc)?

Thanks in advance


I can share my experience from last year:
1. For the "Additional information - Interests and activities", I'd listed down 4-5 short bullet points, totaling ~75 words
2. For the "Job responsibilities", I had a longer description - around 180 words.

I should add a disclaimer here that I'm speaking about the last year's application; not sure if there are any changes in the wording of the question etc. for this year.

Hope this helps. Feel free to reach out again.

Pretty subjective question this is, says Yoda .. :dunnow

Well, I wrote the following:
1. "Additional information - Interests and activities", - 6 bullets ~50 words
2. Experience in English-speaking environment ~ 150 words
3. Work exp ~ 100 words

I think it all comes down to what you think needs more explanation. I didn't put too much in work-exp b'coz there is gonna be a resume attached to the app, but nothing in my app apart from that section will explain my exp in English speaking environment.

That's a great suggestion: Focus on what you think needs more explanation.

Alright guys and gals, today is the deadline for LBS's Round 1. In case you haven't submitted, be sure to do it before 1700 hours GMT or else you'll be considered in Round 2.
Let us know here if you have submitted already. :)
All the very best to all of us...

In the payment page:

There is a fee of £185 GBP to apply for this course. This is not the same as the fee for the course itself.

Seriously? Wow.

Though time and again it has been advised to not wait until the last moment to submit the application, I did wait. And, to my surprise I faced no problem!
:lol:
It took like 1 hour of multiple proof readings (I know I should have completed them long back, but few more wouldn't have harmed)...
but only less than a minute for real submission and 1 minute for payment.. woohoo!!
it took more than 5 minutes to make payment for IMD's app ..!!
Anyway .. gotta wait until the end of the month ..
lucky I have Tuck and Duke to company me until Oct 20 .. :)

Hahaha.. better safe than sorry. Maybe there's some interesting story when some applicant thought this was the entire fee.

Submitted.

By the way, in the application fee confirmation mail, I noticed that my reference number / Online application ID : XXXX - Last Name/First Name (yz)

I dont know, but I think that this number yz could mean that I was the yz(th) person to submit the application? If that's so then the number of applicants seem to be seriously low.

Could anyone confirm if their "number" is in a close range to mine? My number was close to 45.

Submitted too, now lets wait! My ref number was similar to yours... I doubt this can be the total applicants (too low..).. maybe the applicants of today?

Mine's 38 too! Seems pretty random now. This is the beauty of MBA applications, makes you want to speculate every random thing till you pull your hair out!

Just submitted my app too. Even several rounds of proof-reading, I am sure there must be something I might have missed. Anyway, not thinking about it now. Weekend/Relaxation time now.

Thanks for the warm welcome neo365. I also went through the link "Odds of meeting your spouse at MBA" that is highlighted in your signature. Honestly, this is one of the funniest threads I have ever read. Too good!
