Can anyone give some perspective on Round 3 application for LBS, which is due in last week of Feb? Since LBS has 4 rounds of intakes, how does Round 3 compare with other rounds with respect to competitiveness of intakes. For US schools, Round 3 is generally discouraged, which would be at par with LBS Round 4. Is this also true of Round 3 application at LBS?
I am kind of confused if I should apply in Round 3.. any perspective would really help.


My impression is that R3 applications are considered pretty much the same as R1 and R2. Scholarships are still open for R3 admits as well. It's only R4 (the US R3 equivalent) that is more selective and leaves not much time between the decision date and start of program. So if you'd like to apply in R3, go for it. Good luck! :)

FROM LBS Admissions Blog: Which leadership programme should you choose?
The Recruitment and Admissions team is often approached by prospective students wondering how to decide which leadership programme is best suited for them and at which stage of their career. Our three leadership programmes, the Executive MBA, EMBA-Global and Sloan MSc, vary in many different ways: in their formats, location, the experience of cohort, the […]

Absolutely! Why would you change it?! My tip is that you review your app and try to articulate it orally.
It is a winning app, but you have to show same quality in person.

Only reason to change your answers is if something changed in your life, like started a new business, changed job position, learned a new ability...
When informing the change explain how it fits in your plans.

And take a look on the past messages in this thread for more tips!

FROM LBS Admissions Blog: How much does it cost to live and study in London?
Whether you are doing your research or you have been offered a place on one of our degree programmes, you need to take into consideration how you will finance your living costs while studying in London. As the School’s Financial Aid officer I hope to be able to provide you with some useful insights.

Checklist for new students:
  • London Business School Acceptance Letter
  • Student Visa (If You Need One)
  • Secure Financing for Your Fees
  • Purchase Plane Ticket to London (and Get Some Air Miles, too!)


Are you ready for London?

Well I can guarantee you’ve never lived in a city like London. That’s because there is something about London’s vibrancy that permeates the soul. It’s at the forefront of global business and trade. You can become part of a cutting edge, fintech start up at Old Street; make your mark within the luxury retail industry on Kings Road, or build your career as a trader at the London Stock Exchange located near iconic St. Paul’s. And, when you’re done studying and working for the day the options to let your hair down are truly limitless. London is where hipsters in Hoxton and the Royal Opera are only a few tube stops away. There are concerts at KOKO in Camden, championship tennis at Wimbledon and a staggering 270 museums in the Greater London area alone. You can grab a burger and a pint at the Windsor (our local pub) or discover a fine dining jewel, at one of our many Michelin starred restaurants. Are you looking for more? Then check out the TimeOut London blog – http://www.timeout.com/london/blog – it’s a great resource.

London Business School is a significant investment in your future. But, what does it cost to live in here? The answer is simple; it varies based on the individual. It all depends on you, especially the choices you make when you’re here. But, we can provide you with a rough guide to understanding the cost. We’ve surveyed our student population to find out what their monthly expenses are including renting their flat, utility bills, transportation, and socialising. You can find that here. (Please note that the cost of living has risen slightly with 2% Consumer Price Index ( CPI).

Hi, Himanshu1387!

Are you only considering LBS?
In this case, I would recommend sending your CV to: mba@london.edu (They provided this option on a webinar last year)

Another option is posting on this are of GMAT Club: ask-admission-consultants-124/?fl=menu (many consultants are there).

Round 3 deadline is next week (Feb 25), so in your place I would start preparing the app anyway and decide next week depending on the quality you reach.

Hope that's useful!

Regards,

Hi niddy,

Thanks for your reply. I have already given interview for ISB and shortlisted for interview with ESADE business school. Still i am very much into LBS. I have already started my application and hope to submit the same by deadline R3. I want to do job in europe after MBA and heard LBS is better placed for such scenario. Also, LBS is quite apt as per my career goalsin operations.
Any word of advise?

Thanks in advance :)

I'm currently under consideration for an MBA at London Business School and am thinking about my options for funding and scholarships. I've taken the decision only to apply to London Business School this year as it is so far ahead of any other school in my list of preferences that were I not to get offered a place I would prefer to work on my career and build a stronger application before re-applying after a couple of years than take an MBA at another school. I am however concerned that this means effectively London Business School is my only option. Would this affect the likelihood of me being offered a merit based scholarship or are these factors not considered when scholarships are offered?

I would definitely suggest going to the interview - I'd say the more exposure and personalisation of your application the better, but you're right that you'd need to go with good questions. If you prepared them for the interview I imagine you can re-use a lot of them, provided they aren't aimed at alumni. Sounds like a great opportunity!

Hi everyone. I was invited to the interview in R2.

Just received a request for English level test. Anyone who has done it in R1 can share some experience?

Actually it's a bit of a surprise because I got 112 in TOEFL, which is supposed to be in the safe zone....

I don't think the merit based scholarships take into account that LBS is your only choice, it's not a very relevant measure of "merit". They're based on how your application compares with other admitted applicants. If you do work on your career for a stronger application, obviously the chances of you then getting a merit scholarship should increase :)
