Does anyone know if LBS usually starts making acceptance calls 2-3 days before the deadline? The closer it gets to the deadline the more nervous I feel....



At the end of the deadlines info there is part of a paragraph that is cut off, at least for my browsers. Based on how it starts and on similar info for the rest of the LBS programs, should say this:
"All decisions are communicated via email. We are not able to discuss a candidate's decision over the phone, or with anyone other than the applicant. We will contact you directly should any document or information be missing."


Any of you awaiting other results along with LBS for R1?

I was emailed a couple days before the interview deadline to arrange my interview, I wouldn't be surprised if invites started coming out a day or two early.

Last year it seems that all of the decisions came on the deadline via email at the same time. I believe this covered both admits and dings. Also it appears acceptance for everyone was contingent on writing a little essay about commitment to LBS and who you discussed your MBA plans with. That second part seems to have been included as a question in the current app so that essay might not be required this year. But honestly if it turns out I actually get accepted I won't really mind writing a tiny essay for them.

Yes, the second part was one of the little answer questions within the application. As for a short essay on the admit's commitment to LBS, I think that's fair. Raising the bar for the admits is a good thing. And if accepted, and definitely going to attend, I am sure most people will be happy to write it.

No particular insight except every time you answer the question "will you attend" the number went up :) someone reported at some point there were 150ish people going, but in reality a few of these was just me pressing buttons and being curious about the number..
It seems like a meet and greet event, with a surprise trip to the center of London in the evening if I recall well. Honestly, if I am admitted I will worry about it then.. Haven't booked tickets or anything to go that weekend.

The ‘N’ word  [#permalink]

FROM LBS Current Students Blog: The ‘N’ word
Networking.

It’s a polarising concept, for sure. But it’s one that, for success in life generally, let alone B-School life, is extremely valuable.

It’s something that I’ve personally found deeply frightening, but lately, I’m growing to appreciate the importance of networking more and more.

For this post, I wanted to share a few networking lessons which I’m trying to work through.

1) Having a relevant connection. When I was in Singapore, one of my classmates kindly connected me to a business that I found really exciting – (an impact investing hub). The meeting was supposed to be with the CFO, who appeared to have forgotten that we were meeting, and came almost 10 minutes late to the room where I patiently waited. After introducing myself and my background and my interests, he made about 30 seconds of polite small chat before suggesting that he include one of his direct reports in the conversation. On returning, he promptly excused himself as something urgent had come up. I was obviously a little embarrassed, but nevertheless, the CFOs delegate and I actually ended up having a very robust conversation, thanks to her having an MBA connection to Oxford, and her interest in a report I had written in a previous life. I realised afterwards that, the connection with the CFO just hadn’t been right, and he was totally correct in linking me with someone more appropriate. I also should caveat that I don’t at all chalk that as a loss or second-best, but simply a correcting of the system. Through my new connection, I am actually still linked in to the CFO, who was apparently impressed with the report she gave to him afterwards. The moral – good networking is a patience game, not going straight for the jugular.

2) Keeping the Options open. A crucial lesson I learned there was how important being open to new pieces of information is. Sometimes it takes several networking ‘leaps’ to get to the right destination. For example, a chance conversation with my former partner at Deloitte led to her connecting me with a director in the firm, with whom I hit it off. Catching up over a drink last week led to a meeting with a researcher in a think tank that I never dreamed I’d be able to meet with. Riding those degrees of separation is super-powerful, though again, is only worthwhile if you’re not just trying to bypass connections to grab an audience with some distant connection.

3) Having a great place. This one won’t help in all situations. Sometimes networking happens at events that you’re attending. Sometimes you have to network on the phone, or passing through the Plowden building columns. But for those times where you have the chance to meet up, one-for-one over coffee, having a good place to do this is key. I’m extremely fortunate to enjoy access to a really spectacular meeting place in central London, but it doesn’t have to be anything grand. The comfort from arranging to meet at a familiar place can give you a confidence boost to really enable those richer and more fruitful discussions. I’ve met people far more senior than I have a right to be inviting, and because I was comfortable with where we were meeting, I think that I was that much more comfortable in how I was presenting myself.

4) Take the plunge. Sometimes, you can’t just lean on your network. Especially at the innumerable events, speaker series and conferences that b-school life affords us, simply strolling up to someone you found interesting and sticking your hand out is the only way to do it. (I mean handshake, not facepalm, by the way). I managed to get a fantastic meeting with a very impressive speaker at a debate I witnessed, by doing just that at the end of the event. A crucial corollary is to think about why they would be interested in speaking to you. I think of this as being different to why you would be interested in speaking to them. That’s kind of a given, since you’re the one doing the approaching. I simply told the speaker that I admired her arguments in the debate, and listening to them made me wonder if she would be interested in the topic of the conference that I am organising. She said she was and gave me her card and we went from there.

I hope some of these examples help to illustrate some aspects of networking beyond obvious. Maybe you’ll work your own rules of thumb out for yourself, I’d love to hear about them! Good luck!

What everybody is looking for in profile evaluation basically: leadership, personal impact, teamwork.

For the profile evaluation, look on this forum, Niddy posted it a few days ago. You'll find it a couple of pages back.

In their webinar, they recommended sending your CV to: mba@london.edu

The next online event will be on: Wednesday 02 Dec 2015 13:00 (UK Time)
I think you should participate, gauravkaushik8591!
It will be about all the degrees, so will be useful to find out if the MBA is the adequate program for you.
