I was surprised there was no similar language in the email, but will wait on the trainload of info they are sending via snailmail, etc.


apologies... i meant in the future email or snail mail... yes the notification received today lacks this info.
The 1 month period i mentioned above was based on a response from the adcom when someone raised this question on the Interview Day.

Who ever has not got email may be because the transcripts have not reached yet - mine have not reached the school yet but I got in touch with the University and was told about the decision - which would be formally emailed to me once my transcript reaches

I was wondering if that was the hold up but I sent my transcripts about a month ago and the last communication I received said they would be in touch with the final decision by today.

Thanks for your response. I guess I'll have to wait until Monday to figure it out.

I'm just going to throw this out there. Did any of you consider Cambridge? If so, if you have/had been accepted, which one will/would you choose and why?

From speaking with students, alumni and faculty in both schools, I have been impressed across the board. There are small differences in the program structure, class size and composition but I'm beginning to learn that the real differences may be in the "feel" of the two schools, which one can only sense after visiting both places (something I'm unable to do).

Anyway, feel free to chime in with your thoughts guys. Thanks!

Congratulations to all admits. We had created a FB group for our year and then invited current students to join. One of you can take the initiative and post the group link here. I will add current students to that group.

Go party!

I won't be able to answer your question directly since I did not apply to Cambridge, the reason being that I was an undergrad there and I wanted something new. Having said that, I did live in Oxford for three months working in a project so I can compare cities first hand if not the MBA programmes per se. Oxford is a much larger town which means that it is not as charming, but offers a more comfortable setting for older students like us. In particular, Cambridge is a lot prettier because colleges are "open" while in Oxford they act like independent fortresses. Don't me wrong, Oxford is still gorgeous. Also, Oxford being larger means that it might be easier for my fiancée to find a job. All in all, I think the main difference is that Cambridge feels like a small town, and Oxford like a slightly less small town.

In terms of impressions, I feel that the Oxford programme has one huge advantage which is that after the internship you get to return to school for a month. I think this is a great opportunity to reflect on what you learned during the summer and learn from others as well. Another big difference is that Cambridge has A LOT of mandatory activities outside the core courses (venture project, consulting project, capstone project, leadership seminars, etc.). This might work for some and not for others. I felt it wouldn't that much for me.

Thanks for that, Ducksworth. I did hear about the difference in the cities and frankly for one year - that's really not a dealbreaker for me. I've lived in big cities all my life so a year in a small/smallish town might be a welcome break.

Good point about the returning to school bit - I didn't think of that. If one did an internship in the summer at Judge, you would be effectively saying goodbye to the school and classmates in June, rather than September. Another oddity at Judge is that the finals week is AFTER the vacation, which means your mind is never completely at rest... but I suspect that is the case in a 1yr MBA regardless . :)

The compulsory activities actually suit me because I don't have a business background so the rigid structure gives me direction. Also, I'm looking to get into Consulting and those projects will be of use. On the other hand, I'm still not convinced I will benefit as much from the compulsory Entrepreneurship project at Said since that is not a major area of interest for me.

I appreciate your input nonetheless and maybe we'll be classmates next year!

Congratulations to all those who made it through!!

I got in as well !!

Just wondering if the exact scholarships decisions have already been emailed along with the admit letters to some of us? The letter I received says

"if you have been awarded a Said Scholarship you will be contacted by email within the next few days."

Anyone received anything more than this generic statement ?

Thanks!..Hope to see u all at Oxford!!

Congratulations to all those who were accepted, and good luck for those whose priorities have now shifted to other schools! I'm applying in Round 2, so hopefully I'll have some good news in a few months!
