Hi..

I have a query. I have a software engineer friend who has almost 8 years of experience in the banking domain. He has written GMAT a number of times. His scores in chronological order are 700, 720, 680, 740, 570 and 660. He got 740 in late 2011. He took GMAT again in Nov 2013 because he believed the score of 740 was too old to apply to any college (3 years old). Unfortunately he did not score well and got only 570. He tried again in Jan this year and got 620. I personally believe that the last two scores do not reflect his capability truly. He is very good at English and in fact has received more that 25 kudos within a month of joining GMAT club and has been appreciated by verbal forum moderators including instructors.
My questions are:
1. Should he apply to LBS with 740? In that case, GMAC would send 740 and latest two scores to LBS.
2. What is the probability that he would get an interview call?
3. How difficult is it for foreign students to get through in round 4 of LBS admissions?

Thanks in advance!

Final week of waiting in patience for R2 applicants. I certainly hope we don't have to wait until the very end on thursday evening, I recognize that this might very well be the case!

Good luck to all of you guys!

Good luck to all the R2 guys waiting to hear from LBS.

I too would certainly hope for early results but the R1 admits got to know only on the last day especially after 17 GMT i believe.

So... basically, do the previous posts mean that they will not release all the acceptance/ding notice all together on the 27th?
I had reached a sort of peaceful state of mind as I was sure about that!!!
