Does anyone know what the "interview waitlist" is at Cambridge?

Well, Conrad is the right person to confirm this year's numbers (which he probably won't do!) but BW or something of the likes gave a number of 12 people on the list last year, and 4 admitted. I was one of those.

Those who are coming in for interviews on Monday, welcome to Cambridge. The current class is toiling away under the weight of impossible deadlines. 3 weeks to go and I am off to Thailand for a month to work on the GCP. 8-)


Thread isn't too lively so I thought some admissions speculation would be fun....

Had anyone seen any BW/pagalguy/gmc examples of someone who was interviewed at JBS and not admitted? There really aren't many JBS candidates to work with so sample size is small.

Official motion to separate the Cambridge / Oxford threads. "Oxbridge" is cute, but they are SEPARATE SCHOOLS!

Guys I just had my Oxford interview in San Francisco. The interviewer was really polite and made me feel really comfortable since the beginning. The questions asked were standard inquiries:
-Describe your actual ocupation and how you got there.
-Why an MBA.
-Why Oxford.
-Describe an experience you had motivating people in your team.
-Describe an occasion when you found opposition from your superios to an idea you wanted to implement.
-Short term & long term objectives.
-General questions about the school.

The interview lasted 45 minutes and took place in a very relaxed environment in a office building penthouse at downtown San Francisco. Gorgeous view.

Good luck to you all! Just one week to know the final decision.

I second that. Both schools are great and deserve separate threads plus it will cause less confusion.

I agree too! Those of us who get in and are around during the next admission year should ensure that there are separate threads for the two schools!!!!

Thanks "ingoditrust"!

Not holding up very well. Today has been write-off productivity-wise. Was just browsing through the R1 results to get a sense of the direction Adcom was going in. Fingers crossed. Lets see how it goes. All the best to everyone.
