Did anybody finish their interviews? It would be great if you can share your experience. :)

Yes, I just got done with my interview.

Almost all the questions were similar to the ones asked in the application:

Why MBA
Why Oxford
Career progress so far
What motivated you to pursue your intended goal
Have you started preparing for your career transition
Behavioural questions - an example where you had to convince someone of an idea, a setback
Questions for me

Just interviewed via Skype with AdCom.

Questions were:
Introduce Yourself
Why MBA
Career Goals- I had two different companies listed so I had to explain how they were similar.
Why Oxford + Why one-year international vs a two-year US
Setbacks in career?
Failure?
What would you find challenging at Oxford?
How will you succeed in the quantitive curriculum?
What will you contribute to your classmates?
What other schools did you apply to and what was the result?
+ ALOT of questions about my essays and my motivations behind those so be sure to review those.

Overall, challenging. Yet, still a good conversation.

Last year Oxford released decisions only on the decision day. Not sure whether they will follow the tradition this year.

Aren't the 1st round decisions supposed to be released today? Or did I get the dates wrong?

Great to see that people are posting their interviews debriefs. Just a small request to all those who are sharing their interview experiences in this thread: Do forget's to add your debrief in "Interview Debriefs" section as well where it is easy to trace than a debrief posted in discussion thread. Thank you!
