Slightly off topic but I figured we all need a distraction :

Nice find! I've bookmarked it for future reference... ;)

This article also explains the sometimes odd looks I got at my hotel in Knightsbridge after my last campus trip. I guess ripped jeans and a hoodie are not the usual wardrobe for the "old money" set... :lol:

I haven't heard anything either. Isn't the verification process mainly done by the US schools?

Aaaah yes :) if only FT gets rid of CEIBS from #8 their rankings would be so much more believable :)

Hi all,

I consider applying to LBS Master in Management Programme. Don't know where to ask for help. Guess you will be able to help me, guys.
My profile: GMAT - 600 (Q38, V34), GPA 4.17 out of 4.33 from Kazakhstani university (major: finance), w/e FT - around a year at mom, decent e/c.
How would you evaluate my chances for LBS MiM? Do you know some guys applying to that programme? What do you think about possible GMAT requirements? (It says more than 600 on their site)
Essays are very much alike with the ones for MBA (just the sime to be honest). Can someone help me with my application package? Wanna send all the docs this weekend. If anyone can read and comment about my essays, I will really appreciate that + u'll be automatically invited to my party if accepted :)

Mine still says "Submitted" on interact.london.edu, so probably should be OK. Did you get the Application Confirmation email?

That's the only indication I received, though I know the Admissions Office is also quite prompt in contacting students if anything is missing. You should have also received emails after each recommendation was submitted.

Hey bscracker, as prashok already explained, the status seems to remain the same. They just contact you via emails post submission and alert you of your decision directly within the e-mail.

Hi Caleoptera - the MiM is a brand new program and not many people, including even the current students will be able to tell you much about it. However, I'd be a bit hesitant applying to this program with a 600 GMAT. I don't mean to discourage you at all, but, the MiM page specifically says that they expect the GMAT average to be around 700 ("We will only consider applications with GMAT scores over 600, and the expected average score for this class will be around 700." on http://www.london.edu/mastersinmanageme ... apply.html )

I anticipate LBS to be conservative with their admission choices in the very first year of the program and target the safer options (as in higher GMAT, strong undergrad academics etc., preference for better known undergrad schools). Having said that, By all means apply - LBS should consider all factors (including your distinct background), but be wary of what the ad-coms might consider red-flags.

Good luck.

Hi Caleoptera,
Just two days back i also saw the course details and I am considering applying for it. I have submitted my app for full time mba in R2, but i have a lower score, so i am considering other courses. I think the course is very good and has a lot of value as i hear from one of the alumni, the only thing thats stopping me from applying is how do i manage my references again! I am struggling to ask for the first three apps that i have already applied and asking for more is not an option.
I guess, this reference submission should be stopped beforehand, if they like the candidate they could always make a personal phone call and have a chat about the candidate with referees, but tormenting them to submit such detailed references at such initial point does not sound fine to me. I am really fed up with this process :-(

Anyways, if you can manage the ref, then there's no harm in applying for it, as you must already have the essays written and will have to tweak them a little to fit the course details and how they suit you. The R2 round for MM is coming up at 5th feb i guess, so make it fast.

Cheers.

The target audience for the course is people with no work exoperience. I f you have plan for MBA then why do you want to go for class full of freshers..


Who is this programme for?
Our 11-month full-time programme is designed for people without work experience who want to lay the foundations for a successful career in business and beyond.

I got a similar reply yesterday when i mailed and enquired the admissions team for Masters in Management. I think waiting for the results of R2 and targeting next time for MBA is the best choice then.
