How likely do you think it is for COVID to have an impact on MBA FT Fall 21 starts? Asking this because I’m looking to apply to LBS/INSEAD and really don’t wanna miss the global traveling side of the programs.

Qantas has cancelled flights through at least July. Even if you’re allowed on campus, it certainly won’t be normal or involve that much travel.

Oh gotcha. Thanks for the heads-up!

Well I can't speak for LBS/INSEAD but I wouldn't worry too much about that because by that point it would be close to a little over 1.5 years which is enough time for a vaccine to come out. Besides business schools would rather want a full on-campus experience so I highly doubt fall 2021 would even be hybrid let alone online.

Lol 1.5 years is very optimistic

In the very least, I wouldn't not apply - still send in the app and see what happens :)

I think it’s likely for their to be in person classes but I think schools will still be cautious about large group events eg parties,
In person Networking events etc

Hey Fishes. I wanted to understand one thing.

When you apply for any opportunity, how well versed should you be with all the things mentioned in a JD, like certification, experience, some tools and technology, coding language. Do you see a 100% fit before you apply or go for the opportunity if you see the responsibilities meeting your expectation and know only like 60% of the expected or desired skills.

Have you been selected if in case you applied knowing you meet less criterias?

Any tips for staying injury free in middle age? My body seems to be falling apart. Before Covid, I injured my shoulder in a bad fall while skiing that would have kept me off the slopes for a year if the pandemic hadn’t. Last week, I pulled my lower back, also skiing. This is all after a 6 month recovery from Achilles tendinitis that the PT said was a result of running and hiking. I’m pretty active and in decent shape, but clearly I’m doing something very wrong.
