Getting ready for the Interview with London Business School

I had to postpone my interview for the London Business School (LBS) Executive MBA by 30 days. Sometimes I wonder what the outcome would have been if I had gone for the interview last month because by now I would have known my fate. Well, I will know the outcome in a few weeks from now. All I need to do now is continue to prepare.

After a few weeks in the US with virtually little time to prepare – to be honest I probably did 85% of my preparation in the air through Abuja-Mallorca-London-New York-Seattle-New York-London-Abuja – I actually thought I had wasted a lot of time. A few days ago when I put pen to paper to draft my strategy for the presentation, that was when it dawned on me that I had actually prepared mentally and I already had a good strategy in place. It was right there in my subconscious; while my conscious mind was not aware, my subconscious mind had actually taken over the show.

My interview is next week in Dubai, so I am getting ready for another few hours in the air this weekend.

I need all the luck in the world right now. It has been a really tough battle up to this point.

And, by the way, INSEAD called a few people off the wait list. But somehow, they probably forgot to call me. I will forgive them if all goes well at LBS… Yeah, with benefit of hindsight, now I know that I was even lucky to have received an interview invite to INSEAD in the first place. So there’s nothing to forgive really. I am grateful they even glanced my way…

  1. You will do great! Have confidence in what you bring to the table, and how you will change the world (with LBS’s help)! I’ll be looking forward to your post!

      I’ve spent the last hour poring through your posts and find them quite interesting albeit somewhat depressing as I’m also a medical doctor strongly considering going for a MBA in a top US business school.
      It was finally good to read of your admission to LBS.
      Please can I have your email so I can personally contact you? I could benefit from your experience. Will really appreciate it.

        Hi O’Wole,

        There is nothing to be worried about. It is a process that will give you a lift. You will really end up with what you want and look for a way to achieve it. I think there is a way you can get my email address, once you sign up on WordPress.
