I believe in R3 we were given around 5-6 weeks to accept/reject the offer.

Which round were you waitlisted in? From the decision tracker, I see there is only one waitlisted applicant.

Oh you'll be surprised. Do note, only the additional things essay and Current job essay have limitations. The others are unspecified.

There are also a few video essays (one of which is why Oxford and why MBA), and the others are randomised. There is one separate written essay as well, together with the video essays.

I've listed down the essay questions below. I was called for interview, and I'm awaiting the results (due today). Didn't ace the interview because I was having a rough week, but won't be that disappointed if I don't get in.

Current job (5,000 characters)
