Help requested by any current / prospective student of Oxford Said (its a little bit urgent):

I want to include some courses in my goals essay and I am trying to collect information about an elective course which appears on the Oxford Said website, named "Political Risk". Can somebody tell me who the professor is? What the scope of the course is?

One final question is: is Oxford Said in any way related with the other research branches of Oxford University (I am particularly interest in Energy).

Help!!

Hi, R3 deadline is tomorrow. Is there a time deadline specified. I remember, for Cambridge, the time deadline was 5pm UK time for all rounds. But I dont see a time deadline on the Oxford website.

Would really appreciate an urgent reply!

No worries! Got it, thanks!

Hey, when do you expect to get the call for interview? It says on the website that the interview deadline is 11 May. I am guessing that means that all interviews must be concluded by that date?

I believe that's the date you get to know if you got invited to an interview and I think the actual interview dates are 21/22, May.

Goodluck to all R3 applicants!!!

Question -- will our application status be reflected in the online application? I mean after the "application submitted", are we to expect "application under review" and so on going forward?

CountOlaf, Sanjuro9, I say we join hands to prep for the interviews. How are you guys starting out. Have the veterans (R1, R2 admits) given any advice yet?

Hello CountOlaf,

The application status will just read as submitted (It still reads submitted for me after being admitted!) You will receive an email from the admissions office stating that your application is complete. The interview invite as well as the admissions decision will also be communicated via email and both of them are bang on time!

All the best!!

Cheers

Employment report of last year's batch is out. The career opportunities seems to be really good with 90% employed within 3 months after graduation.

nothing much to say, was just imagining countolaf pacing around in his castle and buda punching a big sandbag. as for me, i am just taking turns between sitting on my hands and fidgeting my fingers.

as for lastroundapplicant, he is just taking yet another last round of his home/apartment.

painful waiting for friday, misery if you are dinged, anxiety if you get invited to interview... some more wait and as gctarun said, a wait into perpetuity if you are waitlisted...
