Admit: Oxford Saïd
Sam helped me prepare for the Oxford MBA interview: I reached out to him after receiving the interview invitation. I had three mock interviews with him and the last one with Jon Cheng, who works with Sam. His mocks are superbly tailored to my specific profile and school of choice, making them very similar to the actual interview. Sam gave me thorough feedback after each session, which allowed me to significantly improve my skills in a very short time (just two weeks). Being a foreign applicant with an unusual background for an MBA candidate, preparing with Sam proved invaluable as it made me better understand dynamics I was up until then completely clueless about. The exact first question the interviewer asked me was one that Sam had asked me during our mocks. At that moment I realized that the interview would be very similar to what I had trained for, and thus I felt relaxed and everything went smoothly. I strongly recommend him: Sam definitely knows his business, gives great and detailed feedback, and makes the candidate feel the confidence that is required to do well on interview – which is just a consequence of being really well prepared.
