Hello,

How did you attempt this question in the application:

" Do you feel that your academic performance so far gives an accurate indication of your potential for success at London Business School? If so, why? If not, why not? "

While my academics is not bad per say, I definitely have a few courses where I have scored low. What is the best approach for this answer. There is a "why" for either answer, which is making me think..

I was OK actually, I didn't have any issues during the entire process. If you're still having issues, I would call them up tomorrow to find out what is going on.

I have just sent them an email. Will call them tomorrow. Thank you.

This one is targeted at those that would have otherwise answered this question in the optional essay. It is perfectly ok to say "yes" if you gpa was over or around 3.5 mentioning why you scored low in some papers.

I was going to send him an email reminder, but I noticed this on the LBS site: Quote: All application deadlines are 17.00 UK time. Stage One references may be submitted up to one week after the 07 October application deadline: by 17.00 on 14 October 2009. I just wanted to dead sure that this means my recommender has till October 14th? I obviously won't tell him about this, and I'll expect him to submit it tomorrow, but I won't unnecessarily bug him for it. Thanks!

Thanks Wg Posted from my mobile device Not necessary, as some students access jobs through networks or other non-LBS avenues -- but if you're going to mention a specific company, just make sure that the rest of your essay will logically support your strategy for recruiting with that company (i.e. if the company is known for only recruiting at HBS, then you'd have to put a bit more effort into "convincing" the adcom that your goal is achievable).

Wanted some last minute advice, and sorry if its a stupid one

If I were to bring up the Milk Round in my essays, can I assume the adcom will know what this is, or would I have to define it?

Thanks!

She confirmed that referees have an additional week to get their recos in. Phew! My boss's wife is about to go into labor anytime soon and I would hate to be sitting on this head at this time.

See it at : http://mbablog.london.edu/ @ankit - with regards to the academic performance question - it is really aimed at your undergraduate gpa. So for instance if your gpa was good then say yes. If not so good you can say that you have a CFA/CPA/CA which proves that your gpa is not an accurate indicator. In terms of jobs - my aim is to move to sales and trading preferably in london (but not too fussy about location). Salaries are comparable but sometimes marginally better or worse (depending on the exchange rate) @stopper - yes everyone at school knows what milkrounds are. humblewinner - they occur in January - they are the period in which all the recruiters come and interview from campus. best of luck to those who have submitted.

Thanks bsd.

I submitted my app last night. Still waiting on one recommender to submit a reco. His wife gave birth this morning. I'm so thankful LBS has a 7-day grace period for the recommenders!!

Good luck to others who applied.

Recommender #2 submitted his reco! Phew... I guess now I can say I'm in for R1! Has anyone gotten any sort of confirmation email saying the application is "Complete"? The status of my application and two references read "Submitted". Just making sure.
