One of my recommenders is being surprisingly difficult and has asked for it.

Thank you- I saw this, but I wanted to get the actual screenshot of the form the recommender sees.

One of my recommenders sent me his, so all good.

Interesting, did you glean any important information from the screenshot itself that would be helpful?

Hi ramalcha, I am a bit iffy on this. Here's the question: can she tell a detailed story about you doing something that demonstrated leadership/teamwork/problem solving/innovation? That is work related? If not, pass.

ramalcha wrote:
Hi All, I was wondering if I could get some advice on my upcoming LBS application for 2020 intake.

I plan on applying to Round 2, and have a specific question on recommendations.

On the LBS website, it asks for recommendations as follows:
1. Your current employer (if you don't want to ask your employer to be a referee, a colleague is acceptable)
2. Someone else who knows you well in a work context, for example a former employer or long-standing client.

I am OK with my first recommendation, though have a question on my second. I am thinking of using my professional mentor, who is the Vice President of fairly large institution in the UK, and she knows me very well professionally, my skills, strengths, weaknesses etc., however, she has not actually worked with me job-wise. Would she be a suitable recommendation?

The further guidance given on this in their Reference instructions is below:
"The other referee could be a former employer, a long-standing client, or someone else who knows you well in a work context. You should only select someone who taught you at university if you have remained in close contact. Whoever you choose should know you in a professional capacity."

I guess I am taking the bolded text above as guidance for my thinking.

Any advice on this would be much appreciated!

All the best dcummins! Always good to submit when you are absolutely certain that the app represents the best of what you have to offer.

How are the other R1 applicants doing? I am revising my essays and trying to fit essays to the 500-word limit. Would love to hear from other applicants, makes you feel not too alone! :)

My best advice on that is to narrow the scope of what you are attempting to cover. If you are covering a project, instead discuss one key aspect of the project. That kind of idea.

App done in Round 1. I wish I had spent some more time on the smaller questions in the app form, but all’s done now!
Other’s had a good experience?

I think there is no whatsapp group as of now.

I did unfortunately not make it in time for R1 (LoR was not ready) so I´ll shoot for R2 instead.

Best of luck to everyone who has already applied or is currently still in the process of doing so.

I am in for R1. Overall went ok for me, though I did a bit too much heavy editing on the second essay in the last moment. I wish I had a bit more quality time on it, but decided to go ahead anyway.

Great! Now starts the waiting game!

Arro44, you could have submitted the application any how. Recommenders can send in their forms 1-2 days after deadline.

hey guys

Just a quick doubt.
If you have had your UG education in english you dont have to provide TOEFL/IELTS score ryt ?

I am sure we dont have to but just confirming.
Cheers
Sushiboy


If you´re undergrad was 100% in English you can obtain a certificate from your school stating the same.
This should allow you to get the TOEFL requirements waived according to what I read.

Good luck,
Chris
