How does Oxford view R3 Applicants? [#permalink] New post 12 Jan 2013, 12:21
Hi All, my apologies in advance if I've posted this in the wrong forum. I've been struggling to find any information about how Oxford Said treats their R3 applicants. Is it just as competitive as R3 of most U.S. schools that only offer 3 rounds, or do they usually leave a balanced number of seats for each round?

I've asked this question several times and have even contacted the school about it (still awaiting response). But does anybody know if the R3 disadvantage is just as stiff at Oxford as it is at most U.S. schools? I would really like to apply for this year but am very interested to know whether applying in R3 is a viable option for SBS.

R3 is ultra competitive everywhere. This is because the schools have filled most if there spots and are only willin to admit the most exceptional candidates or candidates that help fill voids in the study body. If you fit into any of these categories, jump all over it!

European Schools are easier to get in R3, compared to US Schools.
