LBS classes start in 4 weeks and the end of the wait(list) is near. I am really curious to hear more by tomorrow evening...good luck!

Any rumours or news of the definitive class size?
What happened to our fellow waitlister gnr464?

Hey cat - best of luck buddy, I have a sneaky feeling that I'm gonna get another - "you're still on waitlist" e-mail.

cheers,

Special consideration? That's not that bad, BSD! Since you want re-apply your chances are quite good. What are your other target schools?

However, I told LBS that I don't want to be reconsidered for next year. So I guess that my MBA application journey has come to an end. :shock:

All the best and good luck for your applications!

cheers,

:( I had my hopes up for you both too. I was hoping to have another GMATclubber on campus!

With luck, I'll perhaps see some of you in next year's class. :)

In a way I'm glad. I've just started a new role and had they admitted me now, the move would have been too much to handle in just 20 days.

They said that they'll give me a decision for next year by September 10th. I'd just have to submit an updated resume. I was going to reapply to LBS anyway, but I don't have to create a full application now.

Also, If I get an admit by September 10th, then that gives me peace of mind for a whole year. Heck I'll have time study for the CFA. If I decide to apply to other schools, they would be better than LBS (and not many of those around)...

Cat - which school will you attend now ?

Fortunately, I am privileged to decide between Cranfield SOM and HEC Paris until end of this week due to installment dead lines. Although I want to work in UK, I think it will be HEC...What do you think?

I really hope that you make it into LBS next year's class!

Hi,
I visited HEC Paris last year. They provide exchange programs with many top MBAs from other countries. And you could apply to spend the last term (I believe 4 months) at LBS. An HEC student who was going to to so told me that 10 of them applied to the LBS exchange and 4 were accepted.

Do you have an EU passport? If you don't, you may prefer an UK MBA if you want to work there: you will get work permit if you graduate from certain MBAs (HEC is not part of that list, but Cranfield is).

HEC is a great school and I would probably favor it over Cranfield as it would sure give you better recognition both in France and internationally. It all depends what you want to do and where you want to work afterwards.

FYI, automatic HSMP provision for MBA is abolished since April 08. Thus, you do NOT have a work permit after school but however, you will apply under the "post-study work" provision of tier 1 application. If you apply within 12 months of graduation from a recognized UK institution/program, this should allow you to stay 2 years following graduation and give you enough points to apply for general tier 1 hsmp application thereafter.

Although the process is now more complicated, it is still better than trying to find a visa under US policies.

Sorry to hear about LBS but things sure happen for a reason. I wish you best of luck in your future endeavors.

Guys, thank you very much!

I asked LBS for a final decision, because I cannot wait another year. So the DING after 7 months waitlist is OK. It seems like the class is complete. I just hope for the other waitlisters that LBS will not ding them in September, since usually LBS offers a deferred admit for next year?!

As European I will get easily a work permit in UK and HEC is well-known in UK. Moreover, I plan to apply for exchange with LBS or get a dual degree with LSE...

However, I read somewhere in the GmatClub that usually it is the school rather than the applicant who finds the match! :lol:

Good Karma and Kudos for your future!

Hey cat - the very best of luck for the future. NYU and HEC have very strong connections if you ever want to investigate that path. I agree with Paul that HEC has a stronger overall rep. With regards to LBS giving a decision in September, what exactly are they waiting for ? Its not like they are going to receive any new applications. Why not hand a deferred admit now ?

Hi BSD,

I think that LBS re-scheduled its final decision for next year's intake for those applicants who can wait for another year (age & WE). By doing that applicants do not have to hand in a new application & interview, moreover applicants will not be in the new LBS pool next autumn. I assume that some waitlisters will be admitted and the others will be dinged in September.

Since you do not compete against this year's class anymore, your chances to be admitted may have risen (another assumption). I am sure that you will make it into next year's class!

Gosh, I really should apply for a position at LBS Adcom...

Good luck & cheers,

Haha cat, it does sound great when you put it that way. Although they've just asked me to send and updated resume, should I send in some new essays ?

BSD,

If you can re-write and furthermore improve your essays, then I would do it. Do anything that strengthens your application, outlines your career plans and shows your commitment to LBS. Tell Adcom how passionate you are about LBS and studying in UK. Maybe you should even mention your re-take of GMAT and your plan to attend CFA.

I came across an LBS essay tipp by chance, maybe this helps:

Thanks greenoak,

I think it may be a case of "last man standing" from all the waitlisters of 2008, good candidates like catgmat just moved on to other offers and I was left to compete with just me :). Anyway it'll be a LONG 12 months now. Maybe a long holiday / world trip is in the making - who knows. The news is still just sinking in for now.
