The London Business School MBA application is a long one, with six questions plus an optional essay. If you are applying to multiple MBA programs, it’s a good idea to tackle the London Business School application first; this extensive application will require you to create a repository of stories that will be valuable later, when you need to select the optimal stories for other MBA applications.
Here’s my analysis of the fourth question in the London Business School MBA application, which may seem straightforward but has a hidden component.
Question 4 (300 words)
Student involvement is an extremely important part of the London Business School MBA experience and this is reflected in the character of students on campus. Please describe how you will contribute to student clubs and the community and why?
The invisible component in this question is your past involvement in the community and other academic settings. If you have such experience, it’s a great idea to weave it into the essay, as it will provide evidence that your interest in ex-curricular activities is real, not just wishful thinking.
