Anyone knows what to do in order for an LBS Alumnus to receive the online recommendation form? The only related part I have found on the application website is 'If an LBS alumnus or student has completed a recommendation form for you, please name them here'. Many thanks!

Ask the alumnus to write to mba@london.edu and ask for the form, they will send back a link.

Is there a difference between R2 and R3 admit ratio? I am told R2 and R3 are pretty similar in terms of admit rate and R4 is much more difficult to get in ?

Hi everybody,

another quick questions for R2 application.
How to answer to the below questions if I hadn't participated to any events?
"Have you attended an event on or off campus where you met with representatives from the school? If yes, please tell us when, where and who you met."

I would like to participate in October when LBS hold and event in my city, however for working reasons I was not able to participate... it could rise some issues in my application?

Best,
S

If you didn't, you didn't. Don't lie on the application.
Attending an event could help boost your application a bit but there are other ways to get those points like by talking to current students, corresponding with the adcoms, etc.
Not attending an event will not disqualify you.

Was recently browsing through the website.. LBS doesn't state how many tailored core modules one has to take after the fundamental core modules. Does anyone know?

Hi everybody,

what about to answer as indicated to the following questions:
Do you feel that your GMAT/GRE score gives an accurate representation of your numerical and analytical abilities? N
Are you planning on re-taking the GMAT/GRE? N
Would you re-take the GMAT/GRE if requested by the Admissions Committee? Y

My GMAT score is 720, but it is skewed towards verbal part V41(94%)- Q47(63%). In both my Bachelor and MsC I have high grades in math, statistic and financial analysis; I have also done an elective course in econometric (advanced applied statistics)

How do people think the above answers would be received? I'm afraid it comes across as "I didn't do as well on the test as I think I could have, but don't plan to re-write it unless you'll make me?"

Hi Silvia yes it kind of does come across that way but they also realize that you have other priorities in life and might not have the ability to put forth really big push on the GMAT.

By the way I might recommend that you do MBA Math. It's pretty well suited for someone like yourself where you're claiming you have the quantitative abilities to succeed in class but that isn't fully reflected on the GMAT. It's an online self-paced course and I think you should check it out and put it in the optional information - that you are in progress with this and the transcript is forthcoming. As an FYI I don't work for them or anything.

As a female applicant they're motivated to pick you because you represent some diversity but they have to feel comfortable that you can handle the coursework.

If you recently took the exam and feel as though you can get into the 75% range with quant that would be the best course of action, but if you've lost some momentum and you need to get these applications sorted MBA Math might be the more controllable near-term solution.

Hi Samuel !!....maybe I can take this one. I am a current LBS MBA 2020 candidate. There is no fixed number of courses you need to take. In order to pass the tailored core, you need to complete between 40-48 credits. It is your choice as to how many courses you take in order to fulfill those credits. On average, 4-5 courses are enough.

I am an ex-Gmat club member. I would be more than happy to help any applicants applying to LBS.

There's not much difference in acceptance rates of R2 and R3 as per our analysis. See the second chart of the analysis.. https://gmatclub.com/forum/calling-all- ... l#p1708081

I'm making a snap decision about applying to R2 & R3 soon and would really appreciate input. I've been told I have a strong profile (interesting niche industry, quick career progression, female, decent application), but I really bombed the GMAT. Was planning to rewrite the test within the week limit of the application deadline (Jan 11th), but I don't think I can boost my mark enough by then to be comfortable (710).

I'm deciding if it's a) better to wait for R3 to study longer to increase my GMAT significantly. Or b) apply for R2 since there are more spots and they may be less picky on a modest GMAT increase.

From the admission trends, I see that acceptance rate for R2 R3 are the same, but is there any insight to how competitive the candidates are in those two rounds? Are R3 candidates just more outstanding altogether? Does a candidate with an average score stand a better chance in R2 or does it not make a difference?

It's always better to have a higher GMAT score than school's average, though it won't necessarily make your application competitive as ultimately a lot depends on how good your story and overall package is.

While it's likely to be true, we don't have data or evidence to support this argument.

I am contemplating whether to submit my application in round-2 or wait until round-3. While my application is pretty much done, I might be able to visit the campus in Feb and get even better recommendations by round-3. I am an Indian applicant.

What do you mean by write to the adcom for additional info? Do you mean to ask some random question about the program as a result of the visit just to get some visibility??

From my experience, LBS really focuses on your connection with schools. In the application form, they ask several times questions like: Do you know any alumni/current students? Have you met any adcom..."

So exchanging emails with adcom to ask questions or to provide additional information is really helpful.
