LBS admit. Have decline admission offer. Best of luck everyone!

  • Why is that?. 13 Apr '14.


I have joined IT firm in Dec 2010. So is it right time to go for GMAT this year or next year as I am targetting LBS as my fav choice of college. I have good Acad Records.

Hello ...LBS_Admit ....I know you must be congratulated from all around many times by many......which you truly deserve...but here is one more applaud to add to your achievement .......
Well iam a young aspiring CA student ...I have just cleared my CA-IPCC (inter) and now doing articleship from a small midsize firm(which is not that big) and also doing B.com graduation side by side.........
...I always wanted to go for LBS after being a CA ....
So my question to you is that whether doing articleship from small firm matters if we show high credential with our CA-Final marks and then after being a CA working for 2-3 years in a good company....and then going for GMAT Exam ???
Do they count Articleship training also ...I mean do they value it much ...or post experience after being a CA is what matters ??
What are their criteria with CA students???

is there any chance of getting into LBS directly after BTech ?
or any good buisness schools in further..
if we can.. can anybody help me with their names please

Hey hi!
Firstly, congratulations on ur achievement!

I know this may sound really stupid but wud I stand a chance with lbs if i apply next yr....2010?.....considering my WE?...

Degree: 1st class from University of Manchester
GMAT : 750
Extra curricular: Loads!...lots of part time experience as well during uni
WE: almost 1 yr now (2 months to go) (Engineering: Automation/Control)

Would i get any points for being a female applicant?...as very few women apply for MBA?

Hello All,

I see very few LBS admits compared to other UK business schools such as Judge, Said, Cranfield, Manchester etc. on this forum.

I guess LBS has increased its level in terms of admisson criteria. All your comments/views are welcome as this will help the further round applicants to put in even strong applications.

Thanks and looking forward to your views


Hi lbs_admit,

I am planning to apply in lbs ...But I will b able to apply in the third round for fall 2009..

My GMAT score is 690--q-50,v-32....GPA--7.27/10...
WE 3 years in automobile co..then started my own construction firm for 5 years...

average extra curricular but good community service...involved in NGO and clubs for 5 years...

What do u think of my chances of getting selected in lbs


Its strange! No activity in the forum for the entire week! Have ppl not applied to LBS this year?

I am not an applicant to LBS but for Us schools and I have a feeling its true for almost all the TOP schools.. like LBS, HBS, wharton and stanford. I dont see any action especially on the US top 5 schools .. So i guess there has to be some reason.. either cost factor, people dont wanna leave jobs...


That's strange but actually quiet possible. In US the number of applicants increase during recession but in India its the opposite! Will it mean less competition for Indian students this year or it means lesser representation from India to these schools

Hey folks,

I am an R2 application to LBS too, but I'm starting to have second thoughts, especially because of the finances and the probable difficulty of getting the summer internships that pay well.

BTW, how many here have an R1 admit into LBS?

My profile: Gmat 760/5 years work ex/software research
