Is there any additional fee for that? Or is it covered as part of application fee

Hi everyone,

I am applying in R2.

Here are all the prompts for everyone else's reference:

Describe below your immediate plan after graduating from the MBA.
How does your preferred sector in your preferred location recruit MBA talent and what do they look for in a candidate? Describe the research you have done so far.
Reflecting on your answer above, how do you meet these requirements?
What do you plan to do between now and starting your MBA to prepare and maximize your chances of success?
Should you not be successful in securing your first choice of role, what is your alternative?
Personal Statement (please provide a personal statement that outlines anything additional that you would like the Admissions Committee to consider)* Maximum 250 words.


My questions:
Is there a suggested word limit for the first couple of questions?
Within the work experience section, in which we need to explain the job role - do the details have to be concrete as in the resume or intangible learnings can also be added? Is there a suggested word limit to follow?

Hi Everyone! I am planning on applying to Oxford in the round 2x

2*

Have a few questions.

1. can someone share the motivational questions that are asked in the Kira assessment this time around. I have read that these are the same for all applicants.

also, is there any thread where we can find the behavioural and written questions?

Looking forward to connecting with people who have already applied in Round 1 and also are planning to apply in the future.

Re: Calling all Oxford Said MBA Applicants: 2023 Intake Class of 2024 [#permalink]
Well, the Fuqua EA rejection has me panicking a bit, and I'm now considering expanding my horizons beyond US T-15 & LBS to other schools in UK/EU. My post-MBA goal is to pivot to management consulting, with tech (PM role preferably) as 2nd choice. As an Indian citizen, how easy/hard are these outcomes with a 1Y MBA from schools like Judge/Said/INSEAD, and how sustainable are they in the long run? (beyond the 2 year post-study work permit in the UK for example)

Profile overview
333 GRE, 3.3 GPA. WE: 6 years in product marketing, last 2 years at a soonicorn Fintech startup backed by Sequoia. EC: Not too strong- community volunteering during and after undergrad in education sector (Teach for India and other local NGOs), competed in football/track till undergrad at district and state level.

1. Why MBA, since when have you planned to pursue?
2. Why Oxford over other B-schools?
3. How do you manage work-related stress?
4. Written response was very light-hearted - Cats vs Dogs - who do you prefer and why?
