From last year's thread, it seems emails were sent around 11 a.m. UK time...

EDIT: Correction, around noon I think.

I'm assuming that information will be given to you with the official Oxford letters that are sent.

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 just got my acceptance today too!

I will definitely be attending next year! Any future SBS students interested in putting together a network to get to know each other before next October?

We should probably set a Facebook page.

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!

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.
