R2 applicants (and any R1 applicants as well!)

How do you answer the question "Tell us about your main interests and activities in your free time. (400 words max)*" on the application? Is this supposed to be an essay format or just bullet points?
Is it acceptable to mention interests like traveling and food?

I suggest you read up some guides online - this topic is covered fairly heavily.

My two cents - use this section to highlight interests and activities that would mark you positively. For example, if you lead a football team, or if you participate in something that pushes you outside of your comfort zone.

Unless your travel and food interests can be covered in a way that highlights notable qualities in yourself - don't mention them. They'll make you look like a basic b****.

This is your opportunity to build up your application and to elaborate on how your interests tie to your goal. It’s 400 word limit.... that does not sound to me like a bullet point list. At the same time you can and should talk about travel if that fits your career goals and strengthens your candidacy and application.

Ideally you would have a measurable result or something to show that your interest is something you feel strongly about or you are better at it than other folks or you’ve gone further, etc.

If rejected after the interview, how likely is it that the rejection was due to:

1. the interview
2. whole application package
3. something else

I felt that the interview went well - but I was also under the impression that if one was invited to interview one's package was good and the interview would make or break it.

Many said that at this stage it is the interview that matters most. LBS trusts it’s alumni to be the most important part of the final decision.
