From my understanding they reach out to confirm that they were the ones who wrote the recommendation, but no additional questions.

That's exactly what they do, my boss got the email today and it's just a confirmation that he was actually the one writing down my recommendation

How many of you are reapplying ?

Is a reapplication worth it ? or once dinged, forever dinged.

Not necessarily dinged. They sometimes specifically invite rejected applicants to re-apply, in the rejection letter.

Hey everyone,

Does anybody know how does LBS scholarship assignation work?

I understand scholarships are only assigned and distributed after you have accepted your spot on the program. Does does this actually mean making a deposit before knowing anything?

I find it really hard to take a final decision without knowing whether you'll end up with some financial aid or not.

Had my interview with an experienced professional in the industry. Pretty standard interview. Spent a little over an hour. Here's what I remember

1. Tell me about yourself, why MBA, why now
2. What do you think about Brexit and how will it impact your decision
3. What exactly do you want to do in your field
4. Tell me about a leadership experience
5. 5 min to prepare and answer a case.

How was the case? I know you're definitely not able to tell us what it is, but just wanted to see how you felt about it. I had never done a case during an interview so feeling very nervous about it!

I felt fine. There was nothing ambiguous. It was actually my first case in an interview.

During my prep I used this link and the case items there. It's over preparing using the McKinsey link but it does give you the full scope of a case interview.

Oh no, the interviewer was amazing, i am happy i met him because he gave me a lot of valuable advise. But he also talked a lot about what i should do to improve if I don't get through this year! Plus i sort of blew the case presentation.
