Does anyone have the link using which LBS Alumni/current students can write in a recommendation for an applicant? I couldn't find it on the LBS website

PlastMan - Which form did your alumni use for submitting their recommendations?

Posted from my mobile device


The person sent an email to the waitlisted address and got a link from them to submit the recommendation.

Hi Guys, Any tips on how you go about approaching an alumni for a recommendation for someone who doesn't know any alumni personally? I've been in touch with a few student ambassador and cold email a few current students but not really sure how to approach one to write a letter of support...

If they they don't know you at a personal or professional level they won't be able to add much to the recommendation. Note that they have to indicate for how long they've known you and under what circumstances. Approaching an alumni that barely knows you will be shooting yourself in the foot.

Hey guys, do you know if we are going to receive an email any time soon updating us in the WL? For example American BS send you every round an "updated" decision that can be - Dinged, Remain in WL or Admitted. Does LBS do something similar?

Is anyone still running for a seat or rather you have accepted another school?

Can the answer be: Denied? or we can only expect Accepted or Remain in WL?

It can be but I think they tend to wait to June and/or July for rejections (to hedge?). Given that a R2 got off the WL last week, I'm expecting most of us to continue being on the WL.

I have heard that many people get it up until a week before class begins. Many have cleared thru in the final round. Don't lose hope !!!

Oh someone got off the WL in this review? Do you know his/her profile or what additional steps he/she took?

- Abhinay (INSEAD MBA Class of 2017 Dec)

I was in your shoes a couple of years ago when I needed MBA Admissions Consulting services and guidance from current students and alumni but always faced the problem of either the admissions consultants being too expensive to afford or not knowing the right student/alumnus from my target school who can guide me. I graduated recently in Dec 2017 from INSEAD and realized that this needs to change and democratizing the consulting process makes much more sense. This is why I have started Easy MBA Admit - An Admissions Consulting service for the people, by the people. Why should you be interested? Here's why:

1. The most affordable admissions consulting service with services starting at $100 (mostly to cover operational expenses) - because we believe more in paying it forward and helping future MBA aspirants rather than making huge profits.

2. All services offered by recent alumni/current students from top B Schools like INSEAD, LBS, CBS, Kellogg, Stern, IESE, Wharton, etc. motivated by goodwill and who were in your shoes not too long ago and hence know how best to position your application.

3. Proud to say that so far we have had a 100% success record at placing aspirants in their target schools. Examples include INSEAD, LBS, IESE, HEC Paris, CBS, Wharton, Kellogg, Stern, NUS, NTU and more

4. Get your Free Intro Call (https://www.easymbaadmit.com/services-1/free-intro-call) with no obligations attached. If you do book any of our services we have a money back guarantee in case you don't like the service.

That would be sgk376. No idea what he/she has done. But he/she got off the list a week before the deadline at least.

Hey, I got off the Waitlist in the last week of April. I was in UK for work, and I met with the Waitlist manager and members of Ad com, discussed how LBS was the right fit for me in great detail with reference to my work and the future in this industry . I told them that I met with Alumni and mba classmates and attended events to feel the fit and energy. I also explained how I would be an asset to class discussions. Be honest with your interactions and speak from the heart. Good Luck everyone !!!

Could you please tell me how many days after your visit did you get your acceptance? And how did you manage to talk to the Adcom representatives?
I visited London in April too but talked only to the waitlist manager who had questions abut my post MBA plans. Yesterday I got the update and I'm still on the waitlist :(

Did you actually meet members of the admission committee? That's pretty odd. I just met the WL managers. How was the meeting with adcom? Did they prompt it?

Yes . They initiated the meeting. This happened after I attended the MBA on campus info session and did some networking.

Waitlisted (R3).

Although trying to stay positive, I can't seem to find any stats on how many people are accepted off the waitlist..

The wait continues.

Congratulations to those who did make it from the list!

Using US peers' yields (Booth, MIT, Kellogg, Columbia, Wharton), I'm estimating 15-30% of WL get an offer. I think 2 already got in out of 23 in WL in the forum, so there are left another 2-5 offers for the rest of us.

Thank you- that's probably a prudent estimate to pin our hopes on!
The next decision will be made on 15th June as per my email - I am assuming this is after the 1 month period for the first instalment for R3 admits.

Good luck all!
