Hey MtichA,

I'm going for it. What about you?


I'm still waiting for the INSEAD (Interviewed today and will know about their decision on March 30th) and scholarships decisions.

Received my electronic offer pack, but no news of scholarships just yet.

There's actually a Telegram group going that is over 100 members strong! If you join the accepted students Facebook Group (link in the post offer intranet site), it has the links to join the Telegraph group chat too.

Hi Everyone,

I'm new around here, and I'm quite an amateur about all the MBA stuff.

A month ago, I've decided to study for an MBA. In two weeks I studied hard for GMAT exam and got a score of 680. Now I'm working on IELTS exam, which I'm going to take in 25th of March.

Here comes the question; do you think a low GPA (2.44 / 4.00), 680 GMAT score and 8 years of work experience are enough to apply Oxford Said MBA Program?

Good luck to every applicants...

It's hard to say just by looking at the numbers. I believe it's mostly down to the kind of work and life exp (rather than number of years of work exp) that you've had so far and how that would contribute to the class.

You should definitely give it a shot.

Hi everyone,

Oxford colleges are a bit of a mystery to most of us. Are there any that you can recommend for future MBA students that has a good mix of students (ie. not just MBAs), accommodation not far off from Said and ideally from the center of town? I am trying to do some research although it becomes quickly overwhelming. I found a good blog post by an alumni at Said though which was helpful and I am adding the link below for anyone else in the situation:

Here's my 2 cents. I would recommend retaking the GMAT at least once again to see if you can cross the 700 mark so that they don't have doubts as to your ability to handle the curriculum. If you got a 680 first time around, I am sure you can cross the mark of 700 with a couple of weeks of work on it.

Decided in late February to apply R4. I got a 680 on the GMAT and had originally planned to retake the GMAT this summer and apply to Oxford R1 for fall 2018, but after meeting with a recruiter and telling them my situation I decided to give it a shot. Here goes nothing...

(...and by nothing, I mean £150 haha.)

The recruiter also mentioned that 600 people applied R3, which was about double the number of applicants the same round last year. Great that the program has a larger talent pool, but scary that there's more competition!

Hi everyone!
I had an interview this week with Jonathan Reynolds and I was wondering whether anyone had the same interviewer and can share her/his experience with me? I was asked very unexpected questions, none of the usual why MBA, why Oxford, why now. Waiting for the results now...

Hi Angela, thanks for the heads up! Do you mind sharing when you submitted your application? I'm intrigued as to the timing of your interview. Thanks!

I see, sort to hear that. Best of luck with the outcome! My girlfriend studied a biology undergrad at Oxford and commented that even at that time her acceptance interview included some interesting out the box questions to test your way of thinking. Maybe that's what you experienced too.
