Social reps from stream A, made a video promoting themselves. Its actually funnier if you know the folks personally.

Some scenes were shot in the LBS quad. Enjoy

Yep, we had class elections this week -- quite a bit of buzz about that one! Basically, the social reps for each class stream organize all of the unofficial social events like pub crawls, club nights, overseas trips, dinners, etc. For example, one of the social reps from another class stream managed to score entry for a group of us to one of London's private celebrity-spotting clubs this week...

We also have academic reps (they deliver feedback to professors and the administration about the classes and programme) and career reps (they interact with recruiters, etc.).

Hey guys, when submitting your transcripts to LBS, did you just send them online (i.e. via the mba.com website), or did you actually send them by mail ? The website doesn't seem to specify if there is a preferred way to send it to them.

For the transcripts expected after your application (i.e. not the uploaded version in the application form itself), they would be a hardcopy version sent via mail (they want an official copy).

Crap, I meant GMAT score , not transcripts

Hello Prashok,

That is only if selected for admissions, is that right. For application and interview, a scanned copy uploaded during application should suffice ?

chiank, typically all MBA programs require full-time work experience, therefore your work experience as an intern may not count. I´d recommend trying to find a full-time job and work for a couple years before you apply to any MBA. However, you could already start studying for the GMAT .

@ bsd_lover, how´s it going? From your posts seems like you´re enjoying your first month at LBS. It´s such a great time getting to know everyone. Speaking of GMAT, I read in a previous post of yours that the class of 2011´s average GMAT is 697, that´s 3 points more than the class of 2010, and the highest ever. Sure the class of 2012 will crack the 700 mark next year! As to why LBS has a lower GMAT average compared to US schools, that is probably due to the student mix. US b-schools have around 70% American students, whose native language is English. Therefore, N. Americans on average score higher than say South Americans or Europeans because N. Americans are used to such standardized tests (e.g. SAT) and they have an advantage at the verbal part of the GMAT. LBS only has around 30% Americans (and Brits) I believe. But I agree with you that LBS is not as much focused on the GMAT than some other US counterparts!

When do 1st term grades come out? Do a lot of students report these grades on their resume during the recruiting season?

Not that it matters in first term as all papers are pass/fail in first term. The real action begins in second / third terms. But in all honesty the vast majority of the class is not out to get superb grades. Also, there are some scary smart people in the class. I dont think I'll make dean's list even if I wanted to. They say you can do 2 out of grades / career / social. Anecdotally, grades is usually 3rd on people's list.

Tell me if I have to decide between IE & LBS, what should I do? Suppose I get into INSEAD also, it gets even more confusing. Although INSEAD might be an easier decision as it starts in Jan.

Any "you can do it" words are appreciated, and so are "No way " advice. good luck to all I'd been planning to apply in R1 since the beginning of this year. However, I'm starting a new job and I'd like to include my new position in the application and essays, so I've decided to apply R2. I know about the advantages of applying early but I've been telling myself that there's no point in handing in a mediocre application now if I can hand in something much better later. I'll keep working on my essays and I'll retake the GMAT (my quant score was "meh" and an LBS rep said, in an Accepted.com chat, that a high GMAT does help) so hopefully the delay will be worth it. Honestly though, if you're happy with your application and know you won't have any regrets after hitting the Submit button, you should go for it. _________________ Life with the GMAT: Jerome: Ben, c'est 20 secondes de plus qu'hier sur le meme parcours!

wiseguy every year LBS hands out some early admits to few candidates who had been waitlisted in the prior year and had stuck through the waitlist for the entire year. This has nothing to do with the new application cycle.

tmino the honeymoon is well and truly over. We had the first week of the "real" core and assignments. The workload has hit me like a ton of bricks. The professors are amazing and are trying to slow things down for folks like me who haven't had any finance or accounting experiences. But its still pretty overwhelming. I was slacking off and partying with my stream last night. In the process, I ignored the readings for today. Bad idea - first waking up and reaching class by 8.15 was nearly impossible. Then i had to do an extra 2 hours of reading after 6 hours of lectures to catch up. Although I love my stream and would probably end up doing the party bit all over again.

Contrary to many myths, getting in is definitely not the easiest part. I have heard that it will get better next term (when recruiting comes around full swing). So there is light at the end of the tunnel.

I need some advice on Essay 1. Currently, I start with an anecdote and don't get into my short-term goal till the end of the second paragraph. I'm not sure if this is the right approach.

Should I spell out exactly what I want to do in the first sentence and then hit the anecdote? Does the order even matter?

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

I don't think that there is only one 'right approach'. As long as you're answering the question (that is KEY), whichever way you do it is fine. I would start off with the anecdote, and then get into the details from there on out, but make sure you are not using an anecdote just for the sake of it, because with 600 words, you dont have a lot of room.

Good Luck !!

Hm, you'll definitely be cutting it close. Have you written essays for other schools yet ? If so, you should have a half-decent idea of what you want to say, and how you want to say it. If not, then I would consider waiting until the next round, and put your best foot forward.
