I submitted a Round 2 application a few days ago. One of my recommenders sent his letter about two days after the deadline so I hope I'm considered part of Round 2. Have to wait and watch. Good luck to everyone.

Just popping in to say hello as a current MBA student (2010 graduation, 2008 app season). I followed this board a lot during my application last year and thought I'd stop by to see how it's doing.

Feel free to get in touch with me if you're visiting campus. The school has official student ambassadors, but as you can understand, they're coached to communicate everything with a marketing spin.

fairplay - how brutal has recruiting been for full-time and internships on campus this year?

Recruiting for summer interns has just begun this month so it's still too early to tell how things will play out.

I can report that students are worried though. I myself skipped all the first week's presentations, but someone who did attend said there was a lot of "FOMO" going around... Fear of Missing Out. Then again, I've also spoked to several people who extended their winter holidays by a week just like I did, instead of coming back for recruiting presentations. That to me indicates that it's not as brutal as you'd think.

Frankly, I think it's just our nature to over-worry. The school is well connected internationally and I'm confident that most of us will get great placements--maybe a lesser proportion this year in the UK itself, but there are jobs to be had in other corners of the world.

Yeah, just noticed that myself. BTW, for US students, we now have our own website for direct loan applications (private or Stafford).

Speaking of funding, has anyone seen the additional scholarship instructions released yet? I thought they were supposed to be included with our offers...

Apparently all scholarships for R1 and deferred admits have already been handed out (according to one of the LBS staff). Sad but true :(

How about the other ones that are due in June, though? The website mentions that instructions on how to apply for those will be sent with offer details...

bsd_lover , can you update my status to Submitted in R2 pls ?

Although i have a low gmat score, i have put my application fwd for R2, lets see how it goes. Many have told me , its not all about GMAT score, there are several factors and it depends on best fit. So with 8 yrs of work exp and hopefully good recommendations, i hope my application is taken seriously.

Btw , if you have a low score but a 6.0 in essays, does it make it any better ?

There's a saying in football (the fooball of UK) - "if you don't shoot, you're not going to score"

Having said that, almost the entire class is probably going to apply for those 5-10 scholarships - I dont like my odds (and am not going to bother).

True -- on the plus side, I think the rules are that you can only receive one scholarship, so everyone who got their scholarship offers just recently are already out of the competition at least... :-D

Finally got around to paying my Commitment Fee (I sent my acceptance earlier), so a change of avatar was due. :-D

Anyone else "officially" in?

I have to pay 6000 pounds reservation fee by the end of the week. I suppose you can call me "officially in" after making that kind of commitment :)

Yeah, that probably qualifies! I guess that also explains why it's the middle of the workday here and both of us are busy posting on GMATclub... :lol:
