Hmm, I see. Hopefully, addressing Q47 will not hurt me and it can show that I have thought about my weaknesses on the application.

HELP! I need to know whether I need to send my GMAT score to LBS, or whether just uploading the official test taker copy with my application is enough?
I've already submitted my app just now, and would really appreciate if someone could let me know ASAP before tomorrow's deadline.

Thank you :)

You will need to send the scores i believe, i'd asked an Adcom about this a few months ago. Use the school code and the send the score through GMAC. Although maybe deadlines don't count since you have uploaded an actual report.

Does anyone know if they offer extensions on the reccomender deadlines? My recommender is being a little unresponsive after the holidays, and I'm not sure if he'll get it in by noon tomorrow.

Reach out to someone from the ADCOM, they usually give you a week after the deadline but you will need them to make a note on your file.

Looks like their office is closed today, I'll try reaching out again tomorrow though.

What is the best way to answer: "Which other schools have you applied to?"

Is there any recommendation when answering this one? If you know any London Business School Alumni or Students, please give their names, graduating class and tell us how you know them. (300 words max)

I know way too many people from LBS.

When it comes to knowing a large number of people, maybe pick the ones which whom you have the best relationship.
The adcom might reach out to 1-2 of them in case of questions :)

Hi sancre16,

regarding the best way to answer "Which other schools have you applied to?", schools claim that this info is not used for admissions purposes, but for statistical purposes (e.g. in order to know which schools they're competing against).

But, in any case, if you have applied to other schools, try to select those who share some similarities with LBS and ideally are similar or lower-ranked. For example, if in your application you talk about LBS' location in Europe as one of the reasons you're applying to LBS, selecting a US school would look kind of strange.

If you haven't applied to any other schools, simply be honest and check "No" in "Have you applied to other business schools?".

I hope this helps.

Thank you very much.

Warm regards
Alex

Would you advice the same concerning INSEAD in particular?
In general, either of the two is perceived as the top B-school in Europe and they normally have a high share of cross applicants.

Would stating the respective other school be okay/logical in such an instance?

Regards,
Chris

LBS loses their yield to INSEAD. They want to know LBS will be your choice if offered a position, i would err on the side of caution.

Hi Chris,

yeah, LBS is well aware that many of its applicants are also applying to INSEAD. Because of this, selecting INSEAD is perfectly fine.

However, if in your application you mention that, in order to make your desired career transition, you're applying to LBS because you need a 21-month program and two summer internships, then, again, selecting INSEAD could raise some flags.

I hope this helps.

Warm regards
Alex

Good call. Doesn't seem as though the invites are from this round. The wait continues!
