Hi everyone,

Have you received the school email to access the intranet yet ?

I encounter some problems to access the network following their instructions. The authentication window keep appearing again and again and I cannot move forward to the next step.

Did anyone see the same problem ? It's quite weird actually.

What browser you used ? I used both Firefox and Chrome, even Safari. No help !

Or maybe it's my home network.

The school is so cruel, they do not allow us to pay tuition fee in installments ... haizzz ... big buck this round.

I wonder whether they allow to defer the place to next academic year so that I can save more ... haha

Hey All,

Good luck with your year in Oxford, I am sure it will be an intense and exciting period. I have chosen to go to Cambridge....and I hope it will be equally exciting too.

Hi Shamanth,

Gd luck then. Cam is very diff to get into interview actually. I missed the chance to apply to Cam this round. What a pity !.

Did you try to negotiate with them about the tuition fee. I got a friend got accepted too, but in R2. He managed to get 5k GBP from the school : ).

Should try to do it.

Gd luck then.

Hey guys...

Congrats again to all.

I ended up changing my mind :) I've decided to go to IESE. The reason is mainly because I'm interested in going to work and live in LatAm/Brazil (I'm not Latin American) and IESE's network would increase my chances of getting there.

Good luck to all. this gonna be intense! Let's enjoy it.

Cheers

@coolwolf15 thanks!
Did you try to get a loan from Prodigy Finance? (unless your goal is to limit the indebtedness)

Yes, I applied for the loan of 25k GBP at first. The interest is quite high comparing to other loan that I can get. But the good thing is no need guarantor/joint-applicant. (quite diff and uncomfortable to ask a friend for the guarantor of 15k - 20k GBP :D).

Of course, I try to limit the indebtedness. Actually, not quite sure about the economic landscape in the next 1 year. Quite scary !!!

Hey guys,

I am currently waiting to start my MBA at Cambridge Judge in September. I do hope coming to the Oxford page does not get me banned from Cambridge :-D

Anyways I just wanted to know if there is any one here from Bangalore, India with an admit to Oxford this year? The Oxbridge Bangalore community is hosting a get together this saturday ( 11th August 2012 ). If there is any person going to oxford this year from Bangalore, please contact me.

Cheers.

I wonder how you guys justify the cost of attendance at Oxford/Cambridge if you are not allowed to work in the UK post-MBA. Anyone?

Are you sure? My understanding is you are allowed to work in the UK afterwards following a UK degree.

Hi everyone, I basically just read the whole thread.

Is there anyone who got into the MFE program? Planning to apply during round 1 for fall 2013 - registered to take the GMAT on Sept 2. Would appreciate some insight on how the MFE interview differs from that of the MBA.
