Have to admit, the wait is driving me crazy. Not a good time to be 5.5 hours ahead of GMT. Good luck everyone!

Does any1 knows if Oxford sends an email to everyone regardless of their selection for i/v or only to candidates selected for i/v ?

All the best for your Oxford applications. I just wanted to know what you saw as the main differences between Oxford and Cambridge. I am not trying to influence your thinking because I am sure you have considered the various pros and cons, and ultimately, it is a very personal decision, but I wanted to get a better idea of how people distinguish between the two.

Kind regards

Oxford R2 applicant here....got dinged by Cambridge earlier.

Perception wise I'm not sure there are too many material differences between the two. Both have strong distinguished history of educating world leaders and stellar reputation all around the world.

I think (I might be wrong) JBS is perceived as a very selective program. We have tons of people who got dinged by JBS (without any interviews) who would have ordinarily thought they had an excellent shot at getting in. There appears to be some hidden quality the guys at JBS look out for in applicants. The Oxford admissions process appears to be more straightforward and predictable.

There's also the perception that the ethos of team work among course mates is more common at JBS than at SBS . Finally, I think SBS leans a little towards finance while JBS is more technology and entrepreneurship oriented.

Once again, I might be wrong....Just my two cents

To my fellow round 2ers.....just a couple more hours!

The status in the online application did not change for me. It was only the email from 'Darren Beattie' with the invite.

Guess my post didn't go through on my blackberry last night! I got the invite too! Very excited.

As to the SBS vs. JBS: For me it came down to my future career goals, which are working in social finance. The alum and current students I talked to at JBS were much more focused on traditional banking and consulting roles post-mba and weren't really aware of any social enterprise initiatives or specializations on campus, whereas the alum and current students at SBS I know/talked to during the process are all in the space or plan to move towards it in the near future. I'm sure there are students at JBS that are interested in social finance, but for me, it makes a lot more sense to go to a school where it is the focus of the entire school and a significant piece of the reputation and not just an area that people can study. That being said, I was incredibly impressed by the JBS admissions staff, they were attentive, willing to answer questions and very encouraging from the start. I have no doubts it would have been a good experience as well.

Best of luck to everyone at the interviews! Looking forward to mine in Mumbai.

Hi Zeph! I am in the UK. Am planning to go down to Oxford for the interview!

Let me know if you are planning the same and if our dates match (planning for 18 Feb), we can catchup at Oxford!
