  • 1 year MBA from Oxford. Dont understand the strange choices people make. How hard was it for a top star from LUMS to score good in GMAT and get into a real business school in US? I guess we would never know. By any stretch of imagination, MBA from Oxford following LUMS’, is a downgrade. Oxford is merely a relic of glorified British past and elitie+snobs. Nothing special or even worth a mention in modern world. Locals will understand it better, once I call it Aitchison College of UK.
    My GMAT score was in the 99th percentile. British universities were practically begging me to join their program – with guaranteed placement (lol). I had to set a filter to delete their emails upon arrival.
