Hi bb10 - for Europe employment visas, non-EU nationals are regarded equally whether from Asia+MidEast or not. Anyway, visa is not a consideration for LBS MBAs in Europe. I'm in the LBS MBA Class of 2020 so have spoken to around dozen non-EU MBA2s and alumni about making the most of LBS during and post-MBA: visa in Europe is a non-factor for us.

Re the statistic about US schools, would love to hear your source. Additionally, post-MBA those w/o US work authorization can work in the US for 12 months under OPT. After the 12 months, depends on whether or not you hit the lottery, although, if well organized, one does have two shots at it.



Ah - congrats on the admit. I'm awaiting my decision next week after interview.

Happy to share the source - shall we chat offline? I'll msg you

Yes, I just double checked. I had thought I was told March 23. But same question, will they call the admittees on the 26th, 27th, or only portal updates?

From memory, Round 1 admits were called 2 - 3 days before the final date, from a number with a 44 country code. Good luck!

Do you remember where you might have seen that they called? The decision tracker from last year shows everyone reporting being Admitted through email.

Does anyone know what % of the students get offered scholarships? Looking at decision trackers for recent years in this forum it seems to be 2-3% of the reported population, while the article below on FT says 20% ...

Has anybody been through the video essay component (Kira talent) for London Business School ? What were the questions? There seems to be no information on the above.

Although they have a huge collection of questions, here are some examples:

> What will you gain from the London Business School MBA Programme that you won’t gain from another MBA programme? (This question will be the first question for all candidates, known in > advance ; Basically, they ask WHY LBS?)
> Tell us about a time a team member did not “pull his weight” in the team, How did you handle this situation?
> Tell us about a time you were introduced to a new culture. What did you gain from this experience?
> Why do you think you are fit for working in an international environment?
> What is the importance of diversity at the workplace?
> What is the most important aspect of teamwork?
> What is the most challenging aspect of working in an internationally diverse environment?
> Tell us about a situation in which you were part of a dysfunctional team, and what steps did you take to improve the situation.
> Please give an example of an encounter you’ve had with another culture, and what did you learn from it.
> Tell us why working in an international environment is important to you?
> What, in your opinion, is most challenging about studying in a diverse study group?

You are given 40 seconds to think and then 90 seconds to record your answer

Hope this helps!

- Abhinay (INSEAD MBA Class of 2017 Dec)

I was in your shoes a couple of years ago when I needed MBA Admissions Consulting services and guidance from current students and alumni but always faced the problem of either the admissions consultants being too expensive to afford or not knowing the right student/alumnus from my target school who can guide me. I graduated recently in Dec 2017 from INSEAD and realized that this needs to change and democratizing the consulting process makes much more sense. This is why I have started Easy MBA Admit - An Admissions Consulting service for the people, by the people. Why should you be interested? Here's why:

1. The most affordable admissions consulting service with services starting at $100 (mostly to cover operational expenses) - because we believe more in paying it forward and helping future MBA aspirants rather than making huge profits.

2. All services offered by recent alumni/current students from top B Schools like INSEAD, LBS, CBS, Kellogg, Stern, IESE, Wharton, etc. motivated by goodwill and who were in your shoes not too long ago and hence know how best to position your application.

3. Proud to say that so far we have had a 100% success record at placing aspirants in their target schools. Examples include INSEAD, LBS, IESE, HEC Paris, CBS, Wharton, Kellogg, Stern, NUS, NTU and more

4. Get your Free Intro Call (https://www.easymbaadmit.com/services-1/free-intro-call) with no obligations attached. If you do book any of our services we have a money back guarantee in case you don't like the service.
