Any news regarding scholarships? The email did not mention any financial aid.

I'm also admitted and the e-mail didn't mention the scholarship decission as well.
At the same time it is written in the intranet that "All MBA Said Scholarships for stage one have now been awarded. All successful candidates have been notified via email." So I have a bad feeling. Have not lost all hope though. :)

I saw the same thing. I have emailed my admission coordinator to find out if we can anticipate seeing scholarship offers in the official offer pack, or if the emails have indeed gone out already (meaning, if you did not receive one by now, you did not get a Said MBA scholarship -- there might be other scholarships from the university). Stay tuned!

Congrats everyone. We may all be classmates next year!

Ok just got an answer

"If you have been awarded a Said Scholarship, you would have received an email at the same time as your offer email came through."

So looks like if you did not receive a scholarship email yet, then you did not receive a Said MBA scholarship.

But despair not, there are other scholarships at Oxford available! Also, compare to other programs, the price tag is still a steal (and factoring in the low cost of housing in Oxford -- i believe the Website states that living at a college is 3000 pounds a year -- am i wrong?).

There is one more thing which I somehow don't understand. Why is all the information in the intranet about MFE (Master in Financial Economics) and not MBA? :) Somebody else having the same problem?

Or maybe it's just my imagination that I applied for an MBA? :)

Congrats everyone! I was thinking of FRIDAY all the time, so this morning when I saw that email from the school, I waited 30 seconds, wondering if it were bad news. :? Anyway, feel so relieved now although I haven't received any email regarding scholarships. :( I look forward to meeting all of you guys next year!

I'm currently based out of Toronto, Canada. Anyone in Toronto and would like to meet before school starts?

I think in the past they sometimes create these threads for admitted students of a certain year in the Business School Life forum. :)

Congratulations to all the admits to SBS - "Oxford" - 1 brand that the World knows!!

Is anybody going for the Prodigy finance loans since scholarships have been difficult to get so far? Is there anyone at all who has received a scholarship as I have seen admits with some 700+ gmats not receiving scholarships?

I wonder if they will announce the Clarendon award later on. Not even sure how that works because it looks like a lot of colleges award their own scholarships based on whether you have gotten the Clarendon.

Though initial research looks like mostly M Phil students get Clarendon, not many MBAs (if at all).

Anyone impressed by the outreach so far? I met up with an alum in my area last night to chat about the program. I have also received a really nice email from a current student offering to answer my questions by email or skype. I was really pleasantly surprised to be contacted by both.

Hi enkie,

Yes. I too received call from ambassador and soon going to meet him on lunch to discuss about the program.
Also got mail from current student, though she is pretty busy with exams this week, but will soon reply to all my questions/concerns next week.
I am definitely impressed by this approach. It gives us chance to know more and get access to current students/ alumni.
Have you made any decision yet?

I haven't made a decision yet. Am considering my WL situation with 2 other schools. WIll probably talk it over with a few friends and figure out next steps. I think Oxford is an excellent school and has tremendous resources for entrepreneurs so at this pt, it might be my stubbornness holding me back to see what happens with other schools.
