We understand that prospective LBS Sloan Fellows have many demands on their time. In order to ease the application process you can submit with just the completed online application form, essays, CV, academic documents (certificate or transcripts if available), one recommendation and the application fee. This means you can submit your application pre-GMAT/EA test. The admissions team will then let you know if additional information is required.
The preliminary decision takes around 2 weeks, and the time from interviewing to final decision will take 2-4 weeks. The process should take 6-8 weeks in all.
