Profile Evaluation - LBS

  • Posted by - iamblue91 - on 13 April 2015 - 5:10am

    Hello everyone!

    I am currently looking at Imperial College (Applied) and Warwick with Strathclyde, Manchester, or Cranfield as a third application. I looked at LSE, but given I need to write the GRE or GMAT for it.

    I am currently on the fence about applying for LBS, but am unsure about my competitiveness or fit with programme.

    GPA: 3.7/4.33 from UBC (Honours - Non Thesis - Political Science)

    Extracurricular Activities: Model United Nations (I have been the main organizer, Chief of Staff, and Chair at local and international conferences including a conference attended by over 3000 people); Student Clubs (esp. event organizing); student government; Baseball Umpire (was nationally certified).

    Languages: English (Fluent) French (currently B1)

    Grew up in a household with a parent who was a Senior Executive in an international natural resource company.

    I currently work in the President's office at a regional university.

    Any insight would be fantastic! Thanks!

      Hi there,

      it is difficult to say right now. My intution is that you have your chances for LBS, but you should first do the GMAT - idally a GMAT of 650 or more.

      Also, I recommend you to read my MIM eBook. It will teach you the fundamental knowledge about Masters in Management (MIM) and also provides you with a methodology how to identify quality programs, compare programs, and finally identify programs that fit your profile.

      Best wishes
