Thank you. Need this badly :)

I think so. However, if you have a valid reason as why you could not have recommenders to submit recommendation on time, you can try writing to adcom requesting for extension. You might get lucky.

This thread is too quiet! Did anyone complete Oxford interviews earlier this week in NY/Oxford and care to share impressions/experience?

I had my interview at SBS last week and it was quite fine and relaxed. I prepared for the interview by collecting the typical questions you can find all over the internet.

Why MBA?
Why Oxford?
What was your biggest failure?
What are the most important values for you?
When did you work in a team?
What can you contribute to the class?
How will your classmates describe your personality after one year working together?
What do you want me to ask you?
Any questions?

The interview took place in a very welcoming, nice and friendly atmosphere.

Good Luck to all of you.

Hello Folks on this forum or the Cambridge MBA team,
I just submitted my JBS application. Can someone please shed some light on interview notification timeframes - is there a hard date on which all invites go out or do the invites trickle through as and when the application is reviewed?
Kind Regards

Hello YM,

My brief profile details - An Indian with 9 yrs exp(spread between India, U.S and very briefly U.K) with an MNC in the I.T. Consulting space .. focus area has business intelligence/business information management catering to companies in the financial services domain....

I have applied to Cambridge , Oxford and HEC (interview invitees from all) and considering applying to IMD and INSEAD.. really looking forward to my Cambridge interview though because of the university's larger than life brand recognition across the world and the strength of the program in strategy consulting...

Not sure about the Cambridge marketing forum... I was pretty clear about the university's recognition across the world and especially in India even before considering an MBA ..... And then , I researched about the program on the school's website and found the program to meet my career needs..

How about yourself?

Regards

ddu,

My profile is similar. Indian/male/9 years in IT of which 5 years in USA.

My question about marketing form: while filling the Cambridge application form, the last but one form has questions about where else you are applying. Did you select the "Oxford" and "HEC" there? or you left them blank?

Frankly I don't remember.. But I would like to believe that I had correctly ticked the check boxes..If not, I would like to correct that during my interview or later in the process .

Does that worry you though ? :-D .. I think admission committee members from all schools pretty much know that applicants apply to multiple schools ..so communicating that shouldnt be an issue

From what I gather from previous threads, many good profiles got rejected by Cambridge without interview. The kind of people who ended up in LBS/INSEAD!!! So, I am just wondering as why I got rejected. Either my profile is too good (which I want believe :P, but my conscience does not allow me) or I just got lucky with Oxford interview invite. Either way, I will come to know more tomorrow. LBS interview invite decisions are coming out tomorrow.

One quick question: Do you think Cambridge is more known in India than Oxford? I have grown seeing Oxford dictionary, not other way around. Just curious.

BTW, when is your interview? All the very best for your interview.

I think both the Cambridge and the Oxford brands have no parallels... Its just like Harvard in U.S.. Its about its tradition, its history.. Personally, they are more than mere universities..I prefer to call them the "mecca" of education...

I agree with your point about Oxford Dictionary and Webster's dictionary.. On the other hand you have leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru, Rajiv Gandhi et all - all studied under the Cambridge banner ... So yeah... no doubt the "Cambridge" brand recognition is phenomenal in India ....

I was interested in a program which had a strong core curriculum, focus on strategies in context of emerging markets , special tie-ups and focus on India , would teach me more about social responsibility in context of private sector's focus in emerging markets - the Cambridge program exceeded my expectations on all fronts

Hi Guys!

This is my first post here. I applied to both Cambridge and Oxford. I was denied at Cambridge without interview. About Oxford I applied during this last stage whose deadline is now the 10th of June and I did not receive any answer yet. There is few information about this exceptional deadline so I have some doubts. If we get rejected, do they say something? Is anybody in the same situation?

When did you apply to Oxford? I got my response in 2 weeks time. You can give or take few days to it. Even I applied for extended 10th June dead line. But, I applied 2 weeks ago.
