I just wanted to offer some advice on the main essay topic as I know some people are racking their brain over this.

Consider this from the standpoint of values. If it is shocking to you then it's probably tripping upon some deeply felt principal.

Consider what that might be and speak from that place. Consider that they are trying to get to know you at the deepest level by understanding your values, what motivates you, and want to see if those values are a match for the Oxford Community.

To generate some ideas you might actually consider looking at successful essays for Stanford's main essay question which also speaks to values.

For the part about how you would change this, I think they are looking to assess your innovative and strategic thinking abilities. Be imaginative.

Hello Aspirants,

Back to this forum after a very long time ( GMAT club reminded me that I have not logged in for a time). All the best for the Said MBA, it is one of the best, having personally been there 5 years back. Reach out to me if you need any help.

Very unlikely in Europe. Generally most of the MBA go back to US and apply it directly there. I have not seen any US companies for recruitment. However, the local office of US companies recruits but only for the local office. For example Amazon in UK.

Hi All! Applied in 2017 R5 but was waitlisted and given and offer to enrol in 2018 instead. Didn't manage to make it off the waitlist, so I'll be starting next year!
