Seems like Said has added another round of application ?
Are people apprehensive about applying for this year session ?

antartican Oxford has had 5 rounds in the past but I'm sure the current climate has played a part in their decision. I know other students accepted into other programmes that are slightly nervous about having to conduct a part of their MBA online.

Or perhaps the admissions team declined a significant amount of people for the 4th round and want to maintain their quota.

How long did your interview last and who was it with?

It was quite a relaxed interview.

I cant remember exactly how she worded the questions but this is what they wanted to know.
1. Why do you want to do your MBA at Oxford?
2. Why do you want to do an MBA?
3. What skills do you think you will gain from the MBA?
4. What skills make you unique and will help you in what you want to do as a future career?
5. How would you deal with a difficult situation (re: work wise)?
6. What do negative attributes do you think your references put in their letter/ areas they recommended for improvement?

Overall it went smoothly and she was very friendly.

Did everybody get a request to mail transcripts after the interview? I did not get such a mail. Does that mean a rejection?

I think you will get it today.
My interview is scheduled in coming days but i got the transcript email today.
So I can safely say that transcript email is not related to selection or rejection.

Just received the transcript email as well. I had sent a copy but they want an official one perhaps directly from the school.

Their email says, "You might have uploaded a clear scan of your official mark sheet at the application stage already, but if you have not done this yet, please provide your transcripts"

So based on this statement, you're probably good! But if you wanted to be on the safe side, could resubmit.

Oxford requires you to send physical copies of your transcript, regardless of interview decision. So, while all applicants need to upload their transcripts during the application stage, you will still need to send in physical copies. There are guidelines on how to proceed if you don't want to send them your original transcript (eg: get a notarized copy and mail that instead).

Pre-COVID, you would have to send the transcript before the final decision date for your application round. Not sure if that's changed now, so you might want to check with the AdCom on this.

No, Covid has changed many things.
They dont want a physical copy and have instructed against sending it.
They want scanned or electronic transfer from university.

Anybody applying in round 5?

Does anyone have access to official correspondence from the school about changes it has made in light of the coronavirus?

Has it waived GMAT on any condition?

Has it waived application fee?
