Dear consultants / students / applicants,

please forgive my ignorance and advise in case you have faced similar situation or probably aware about it.

The situation is: I filed a package of docs for EMBA programme at LBS at the beginning of October, then had an interview with AdCom soon. Within next couple of days (after the interview) I received a response from the AdCom that their decision re. my candidacy was pending due to the fact that they wanted to calibrate / benchmark me vs. similar applicants, and I would be provided with updates in 2 weeks. In 2 weeks again I received a response that "still pending, will be able to give some more info in 2 weeks" so on. Finally, I received a response just yesterday again saying that they would be able to provide a final decision at the beginning of January (just FYI - the programme starts in Jan'15).

My background is - Iam 33, 7 years in big 4, 3 years at a managerial position in top-10 US companies (eastern Europe sub).

For me still there is a high level of uncertainty, please advise what do you think. I am really committed to study there, however, now started to be a bit concerned about this situation because I would really like to have more information (not only because I am going to invest my own money to a right place with potential high level of return), but generally to organize my life. How do you think, guys, is it a normal situation that you are pending for so long time and are provided with a very generic reason / explanation for it?

I called to AdCom twice, received again the same response (word-to-word the same as it had been written in the e-mail), nothing more.

Thank you in advance.

Ola.
