Pats,
I'm pretty sure that you have to submit your application prior to scheduling an interview, but you might check the website / with the admissions office to be sure. Are you visiting on an "open day?"

and round 2 of Cambridge.
I have registered for a visit to Oxford on 7th Dec 07.
Would be great if I can meet anyone of you.
Also can anyone please advise if I should schedule an interview prior to submission of the application at Oxford ?

Rocky I would be glad if you are around this time and I can meet you.

thanks
Pats

I'll be around as well. Drop me a PM if you wanted to meet up.

Hey Rocky....so who are you in real life? I only thought it was PS_Dahiya and myself @ Oxford.

Good catch. Guess shouldn't strech it more. I am Abhijit. If you guys are in library or in Bschool we could have a little break from study and meet for a while to say hi :)

I'm in the library - lower level. I'm hoping to leave in about an hour, so I'll be here for a bit.

Hello Rocky, swgotz
I am very sorry for not being able to contact you !
Somehow I did not get a mail notification for reply to this post and forgot later on.

I did visit Oxford and it was really very interesting visit.
I do have a few questions and will call you tomorrow / Sunday probably.

swgotz can you please PM me your mail address / phone no ?


Thanks

Hello Rocky, swgotz
I just got a call for interview from Oxford for Fall'08 MBA.

I already have visited the school for an open day in december and then applied.

What is your suggestion, should I go for an in person interview or telephonic interview.

I know it is a vague question, but if you can give me some pointer it would be of great help.

I am currently in Zurich and if needed can come down

Thanks
Pats

I don't know if anyone's responded to the interview questions yet, but I'd say you'll be fine doing either a telephone or an in-person interview. As far as I can tell from the make-up of the current class the school does not favor one type over another. If you feel you personally have an advantage in a specific type of interview then I'd go with whatever that is.

As far as what to expect, in my experience the Oxford interview was a little tougher than most of the interviews I did for US schools. The interviewer asked the standard questions but also pushed me to make sure I could fully explain and/or back-up my responses, whereas most of the other interviews I had were more "get-to-know-you" type deals with only a handful of questions that required significant thought. However, I know that a good number of my classmates had different interviewers and "friendlier" questions. I'd just be sure you understand the intricacies of your job and how it relates to your company's business and also have answers to the standard MBA-interview questions.

I'm at Oxford now. To prepare for interviews I'd google "MBA admissions interviews" or something similar. I did that last year and found quite a few sites with lists of typical interview questions. I'd take a look at a few of those sites and make sure you have answers to those questions. In my experience they do come up. That's probably your best bet.

Anyone else out there hear back for R3?

I gather that quite a few of the fellow GMAT clubbers are at SBS!
How do all of you view the current recruitment/placement scenario? Do you think the situation will improve/worsen at the end of September 2008?
