Rejected - the most shocking rejection I’ve ever received!
My gpa was higher than the average
My GMAT was higher than average
Top consulting firm in the US
Went to a good school with a full scholarship
Amazing recommendations

... protecting their yield? I would have gone though. Too bad lol

Extremely humbled to receive an admit this morning! Was definitely a restless/sleepless week leading up to today.

Congrats to those that got accepted and best of luck to anyone else applying in future rounds (happy to help however I can).

For those of you admitted - starting a Whatsapp group to chat about colleges, scholarships etc. If anyone is interested just PM me.

Thank you! Happy to chat on any specifics on the application process but one key tip I had is to utilize Oxford's great admissions team as appropriate. I had a lot of interaction with them through MBA tours and just email dialogue which helped me identify holes in my application that I can improve early. They are also super friendly and very responsive.

An honest story, and an honest interview really helped me sail through. Don't stress about the individual parts (I **** up my Kira video essay thing, my application didn't feel as polished as it could be) and try and have a consistent story. [#permalink]

Congrats to all who got Oxford acceptance offers! I am very fortunate to be among those.

Question: is accepting the offer "binding"? E.g. If I pay the deposit, but in a few months decide to accept an offer from a different school, could I cancel my Oxford offer? (I know my deposit is non-refundable, though)

The Application fee link is not working for me. Anyone else running into the same problem?

Update: Working now. There seems to have been a problem with my internet. Apologies.

For anyone applying in round three, really take time to practice those Kira responses, it’s tricky to fit in everything you want to communicate into 90/60 seconds.

I put if off till the last day and absolutely bombed them.

I didn't find a lot about Kira video questions but I have found a compilation of all the video questions asked as part of the application/interview in the following link. I am aware you have already passed the deadline for submitting these questions but just putting the link here for anyone's future reference.

I just got a confirmation earlier today. Since the confirmation came in a couple days after the deadline I was a bit concerned I didn’t submit on time for R2, but it looks to be okay.
