I've read somewhere it is less than 40% chance to get admitted after interview...
I am not sure we can trust this kind of information and it doesn't say much anyways...

Better spend time looking for interview tips and reports... Specially on LBS resources



I am just curious when it comes to the rate. 40% seems low. If it is true at all the emphasis on the interview just became stonger.
But it is true, preparation is way more important now. :) Good luck!



Yes... I think less than 40% sounds too low...
But it really doesn't make a difference if we are on the accepted percentage!!! :wink:

Good luck to us! :-D

Hi, I am an Indian applicant to LBS round 1 MBA. Haven't heard a positive or negative response yet? Any other similar cases? Does the school revert to all candidates?

I was under the impression that LBS sends out Invites/Rejects on the one interview decision day (which should ideally have been 21st Oct - but was 20th October for most of us).
Have you checked all the tabs of your inbox. I found mine tagged under the Facebook category.

I live in New York and just got my interview match. My interviewer is in the same general industry, which I'm very happy about. I feel like 90% of my Kellogg interview was just explaining how advertising works on various digital platforms. According to my LBS match email the interview reports need to be submitted by November 13th.

LBS Shares: 2nd Edition [#permalink]

New post 26 Oct 2015, 11:02
FROM LBS Current Students Blog: LBS Shares: 2nd Edition
I’ve got a ton of blog content all of a sudden so you’ll be getting a double dose this fortnight. Chronologically, I need to keep you all updated on LBS shares. We had our second instalment last Wednesday, and once again, the team managed to source a wonderful array of speakers from across the LBS community. I am beginning to suspect that the job is not actually that hard, the school is just populated with so many people who have enjoyed some frankly bonkers life experiences.

Firstly, the excellent Conrad Woodring spent his speech illustrating the highs and the lows of working and living in Gabon for two years.

As a lengthy aside, Conrad had a background in infrastructure, and before we got anywhere near the African continent, he showed us an image of an oil refinery somewhere around the Gulf of Mexico. I bring this up because, oddly, the miles of steel stretching out to an endless horizon had a certain romance to it. The thought that struck me was about how many people, families, lives were touched by that expanse of metal and concrete and steam. It brought home the marvel of ‘industry’ in its simplest sense – the ambition of humans to marshal themselves in the thousands like ants to build this epic construction which in turn powers the day-to-day lives of many millions. Are these edifices our era’s pyramids? Or perhaps those were yesterday’s pyramids, and today’s pyramids are intangible, digital and financial monuments. Anyways, I digress.

Conrad described life in Gabon: snakes, eating pangolin (an anteater-thing which tastes awful, apparently) suffering from dengue fever, and receiving death threats. As you do. More importantly though, he told us about the ‘Agence Nationale des Grands Traveux’ – ANGT, a newly formed government department tasked with more efficiently and transparently managing the government’s infrastructure spend. Conrad’s tale became a lesson in public sector reform and encountering corruption. He attributed much of the ANGT’s success thus far to the crusading agenda being driven by the new president, a sign of the good that can come from strong leadership.

Our second speaker was a member of staff, Miriam O’Regan. Miriam’s share was part travel guide, part memoir and part call-to-arms, as she related her myriad experiences of volunteering in both Nepal and Thailand. She was passionate, funny and charming whilst she brought home the pathos with photos of the orphans, prisoners and elderly who she shared her time and support with. Her stories were another reminder that there is a world outside the ivory tower – the aspirations of some of the children she taught were to be teachers and nurses, because the children wanted to help others. It’s a truth that altruism is not a middle-class, western conceit.

Finally, the last share, I’ll keep short and sweet – mainly because I’m not sure any words can do justice to my feeling of amazement. Fergus Davidson, one of the Masters in Management, took us on his journey to the North Pole… to play rugby there. The purpose of his incredible trip was to raise money for the rugby children’s charity Wooden Spoon. Not only did he hazard the harsh conditions of the arctic, treat us to some hauntingly beautiful images of the remote tundra, he also casually raised £50,000 for the whole endeavour. I was left wondering whether to be more impressed by the feat or the fundraising!

Has anyone had their interview already? Any insight on the questions? Has it changed from previous years (talking about 5 min presentations)?

Got my interview match yesterday but not in the same industry or background (Finance). I'm a bit worried the presentation I get given ends up being something about Finance which I know next to nothing about :S

I was surprised to get details for just 1 interviewer. Wasn't there meant to be 2 interviews?

There should be just one interview and that's it, then you cannot do anything else to influence the school decision.

I would not worry about the presentation, it should be like the awa on the gmat, but in oral form. I'm preparing with the gmat og.

My interviewer is from a similar field (with a bit of stretch) and the meeting is scheduled for next Monday.
I'll keep you posted.

Does anyone know whether alumna/us details and subsequent interview information are conditional on completion of reference checks, i.e. do these things run in parallel or the latter depends on the former?
