Does anyone know of any group of admitted students ?


There is one on Facebook.


The one I saw on FB(Oxford Saïd Business School - Class of 2012) has only 17 members. That is a very small number after second round results.


Thats the one I know.

Hey people

I'm a candidate for Judge R3. Just applied.

Do I understand correctly that the Oxbridge thread for 2011 did not split up and both schools are in here?

Thanks

Hi Guys,

I was thinking of applying to Oxford and Cambridge in the final rounds and have some queries:

1) How are the chances in R3/R5 ? Is it like US schools where very few seats are left ?
2) The new Visa rule doesn't allow people to stay in UK after graduation. This might be very important as very few people get a job while graduating. I heard that colleges are lobbying against this rule and a possible outcome will come by April. Anyone has some other info on this ?

@ligett and @goyal1109

Thanks for your interest in Cambridge. You still have a chance to get into MBA2011 if you apply in the last round. We don't operate a system whereby there are only very few places in the last round largely because of our very international pool, there are some groups that tend to apply only in the last round.

In terms of the proposed visa changes, the consultation period ended on 31st January and we are waiting for the results of that consultation process. I wrote a piece on this at
http://www.thecambridgembaadmissions.co ... -unknowns/

You can also get more information through
http://www.thecambridgembaadmissions.com

Good luck.

Hi Conrad, thanks for communicating through this forum!

A question please - I could not find the interview decision deadline for R4 on the Judge web-site. Could you tell what it is please?

Hi,

I've been waitlisted after interview at the Judge Business School. I'll have to wait till end of May to hear back from the School.

Can someone revert with some useful information about the waitlist converts at JBS from previous years? Does the school follow a ranking order for its waitlisters?

I'd be grateful to receive relevant information.

I was waitlisted in R2 (thanks a lot, Conrad.... :? ). I was told I'd hear by the end of March, but then they ended up inviting me together with R3 for interview in February (thanks, Conrad! :-D ). According to BW, last year JBS had 12 people on the waitlist, from which they accepted 4, so 30%. http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/ra ... ridge.html

Hi CambridgeMBA,

I have applied for 14th March deadline but not received any communication if the application is complete and would be considered for round. By when should I expect this mail?

Thanks

Some of you are interested in the Post Study Work visa.
The UK Home Secretary will make an announcement about student visas at 3:30 pm UK time today (22nd March). As part of that announcement, there should be some news about the Post Study Work Visa.

You can read a bit more on my blog at
http://www.thecambridgembaadmissions.co ... work-visa/

and I will try to keep everyone posted.

My first thoughts on the announcement made this afternoon are here
http://www.thecambridgembaadmissions.co ... udy-visas/

Someone also pointed me to this post which sheds some light on how MBA graduates can switch to Tier 2. It seems like it has become easier to do so because non-EU students using this route will not be subjected to the labour market, ie employers will not have to demonstrate that there was no better qualified EU candidate.

http://www.rec.uk.com/press/news/1492

I would encourage everyone to read the detailed documents when they are published (I can't find them on the UK Border Agency website) because the devil is always in the details. I will update whenever I can --- I will be off on holiday for a week but will keep up with the latest news.

More details of the student visa changes have emerged.

http://www.thecambridgembaadmissions.co ... ent-visas/

The details are actually very promising. They mean that the best way to work in the UK for a non-EU citizen will be to do an MBA in the UK because you can switch to Tier 2 without counting towards the annual quota, and your employer does not have to use the resident labour market test. If you are not studying for an MBA, the only possibility for you to work in the UK, if you are applying from outside the country, will be to find an employer who will sponsor you and count you against the Tier 2 annual quota of 20,700.

As always, I have to make the caveat that I am not an immigration lawyer and these are my quick thoughts from reading the documents.
