Hi Rishiroadster,

Congratz for the conditional offer. You can check www.e-gmat.com. This course is specifically designed for non-native speakers. It has helped me to improve my score from 650 to 720.

Any one received any Scholarship mails ?

As per the announcement in the intranet, all R1 applicants will be notified of scholarships by 23rd October through email. So I guess if we dont receive a scholarship mail, then I guess we didnt get any scholarship !

Hi, where did you see that in the Intranet. I checked the announcements and I see only old announcements there.

FROM Oxford Admissions Blog: Student life style today
Students who attend college classes and are involved in a full university life are today under enormous stress: exams, tests, researches and part time jobs or season jobs… living far away from family and friends is for most student at their first year of college a big responsibility.

Basically, a typical student life style involves hours of lessons, a lunch break and afternoon activities. Normally, also some sport are included in the program and each college is proud to feature its own teams for baseball, basketball and other national sports.

Free time and entertainment
For many students life at the college is pretty stressful. For this reasons, they end up to go searching for entertainments. Now, in the current world where movies are full of subliminal messages and where even the apparently most innocent entertainment show hides some sort of mental control power, it’s crucial to find a good activity to do in the free time.

Students should be aware of the dangers coming from the world and they should begin to accept the idea of being responsible.

Responsibility: on the way to become adult

Responsibility is a key word today for many entertainment forms, just like gambling. All casinos are called to promote the concept of “responsible gambling”, which is a mature attitude towards games and towards the perspective to gain some money.

Actually, many students at the college feel attracted by casino games because they think they can easily earn money. Well, unless you are a phenomenon, earning happens from time to time. So, basically gambling should be considered as a way for having some free and relaxing time.

Where to find excellent casinos
Today, it’s crucial to find a 100% reliable and honest casino where you can play games in all safety. Just know that there are excellent platforms out there that you can consider for casino games.

Casinos at http://www.awconnect.org offer a wide range of games and bonuses and students are welcomed with a nice and warm welcome bonus.

Correct me if I am wrong but I have not come across a specific "mission" of the school but rather general comments about vision and philosophy. I realize that these themes are often linked but I am half expecting to stumble across something explicitly stated.

For example the following from the website:
+++
Saïd Business School at Oxford University blends the best of new and old. We are a young, vibrant, and innovative business school deeply embedded in an 800 year old world-class university.

We educate people for successful business careers, and as a community seek to use our business acumen and global network to address long-horizon phenomena like demographic change, new technologies and natural resource scarcity.

We deliver cutting-edge education and ground-breaking research that transforms individuals, organisations, business practice, and society. We seek to be a world-class business school community, embedded in a world-class university, tackling world-scale problems.

Hear the Dean, Peter Tufano, explain his strategy and vision for the School

I found the mission in the Oxford Said web-page, it was not easy, but you can find it there. "The Said Business School's mission is to create a World Class Business School Community, embedded within a World Class University, tackling world scale challenges."
