Hi all, congrats to all those who got in.

I got my acceptance email @ 3:45 am Pacific... typed up a message but i didn't send it for some reason. I passed out right after.

For those who received a ding, I was there earlier this year, don't worry and just remember that to get this far you were an excellent candidate but sometimes its about the right person at the right time and a combination of freak luck. Whether you chose to reapply to Oxford or another school, keep it in mind that SBS is selective about who they interview and you must have been a great applicant to have been considered. Good luck!


Congrats dude!

Congrats to all those who got in! I'd be happy to chat with admits about the college selection process as I had to do it myself. That seems to be the most daunting process for most people.

Thanks, enkie,

In fact, just for the benefit of all R2 admits and R3 hopefuls, why don't you start talking about the process here.

Hello everyone,

i received an admit for said two days back. can anyone provide insight on the current immigration situation? from my research, i understand that it is getting increasingly difficult for non uk citizens to get jobs owing to visa regulations (tier 2 vs tier 1).

also, it would be great if a current student/alumnus shares his/her thoughts on the employability of said graduates in management consulting with the top tier firms? Specifically, how does the oxford brand translate to getting a job? I know that Said is spectacular for social entrepreneurship. does the same hold true for management consulting when competing with graduates of other European schools given the current situation?

thanks

So, in the email is said to wait for long in details and then package to arrive in the mail.... From those admitted, any idea what's included? Should we be preparing anything now?

1st round accepted student joining Oxford MBA class of 2012-13. I'm not allowed to post URLs here yet since I haven't posted 5 times but google for 'top mba uk visa reforms little impact' and the first link from topmba highlights the little to no affect that changes in UK visa policy have on non-EU MBA students. Having gone through H1b visa process myself in the US (currently living and working in Silicon Valley) - I don't see the visa process/situation any better or worse than in the US.

Folks,

Any idea whether Said has release scholorship decision for R2?
Also when is the final date for making the payment and confirming the offer ? ( R1 admits can you throw some light on how long they allow).

For R1, scholarship was sent along with the acceptance email - at least that's the response one R1 student got when asking about scholarship. Final date for R1 was a ~month from the acceptance date; final date should be mentioned in the package you will be receiving soon. You could always get in touch with the admins.

I checked out the intranet and it seems the general scholarships were all awarded by email with the acceptance note. Kind of a bummer...I got money from Cambridge but not from Oxford so Judge is moving up in my ranks. There is no word when other Said scholarship decisions will be made.

I know, I've been wondering what has been happening on here. I think R3 is much smaller than the first two rounds.

For those admitted, has anyone heard back about their colleges? I'm still waiting and got my payment and selection in on the first day.

Well I am pretty disappointed that I don't seem to have any company on GMATClub for R3.

Anyway, my package is complete. I am pretty happy with the essays, recommendation letters and short essays. I am going to be submitting the package this week. Deadline is 27th. Any advice, anyone?

Humm well that could be a really good thing that you are the only one :)

Advice... i'd say send it in at least a couple days early to make sure there aren't any unforeseen issues. Aside from that, just make sure the essays are cohesive and tell a continuous story adding to eachother rather than repeating alot of the same content.

After my interview, i would also pay attention to real but unstated weaknesses in my essays. The interviewer definitely picked up on my weakness which was my vague post MBA plans, although i wrote a whole essay about it, she really nailed me during the interview. It was both good and bad, I was honest and said i'm not sure and described what i would like to do, but that could have gone equally bad.

Hope that helps, good luck man!

I should be making the payment early next week. I was waiting for the final IMD results and seems like I will be in IMD waitlist for some more time.

Say solo no more. Sent my application last week. Decided to do it early to accommodate any unforeseen misses.

Do we have a tracker here on the actual number of admits at this point?
