Guys, help me please!
I thought about Oxford mfe program for a long time. But is it possible for anybody without pure economics and mathematic background to go through selection process?
My background is management, for example, I had no problem with mathematic, but I am really concerned with my perspectives if I decide to apply on this program.
And second question is quiet stupid, but ... is it true about so technical interview? Because, for example, MIT ms in finance has a pretty easy, "soft" interview, as I heard.

COngrats first off all!

So out of curiosity, how does one request an early decision? Is there a formal process or did you just call/email them saying that you had been admitted to McCombs and would like to get their decision asap so that you can take an informed decision or do you have any special contacts at Said? ;)

There is no formal process. I emailed the admissions department and they were kind enough to oblige.

Hey everyone, I wanted to know if anyone had any information on the acceptance rate/successful admit information when applying during the Oxford open field timeline? I am going to be able to apply only by end of May so I wanted to see what my chances would be.

Your chances probably depend on the yield rate. I am not sure anyone knows what the yield rate is, you will have to apply to find out. One thing in your fabour is that the number of applicants has reduced due to the new visa laws, so give it your best shot.

Hello All,

Feel free to laugh me out of this thread. But I have lately been inquiring about GPA score needed to get into a top school like Oxford. My GPA at the moment is 3.15 and I am enrolled at a Canadian University. The required GPA is 3.5 for oxford, how bad are my chances on a scale of 0 - 100? I don't want to apply for the sake of applying. What about extra-curricular activities, other designations like the CFA? Do these further my cause? I have lots more question but I will ask as I see fit. Thank you in advance for taking your time to read.

P.S. I want to apply for MSc in Financial Economics.

Hi Kwal, I'm an admit to the Said MBA program with an undergrad GPA of 3.0 from a non-target university. However, I believe my work experience made my application more competitive. I've heard that they look for great academics for the MFE program (more than the MBA), but I still think you should give it a shot. In the end, its not just about numbers but about the whole 'package' and whether they feel you are the right student they are looking for!
