College students aspiring to Oxbridge got the chance to meet OC, AJ Gilbert, who in 2012 went to study Philosophy and Mathematics at Oxford University. Now in his fourth year, he is completing his M.Phil. AJ came to College on Wednesday 16 September to inspire others to follow in his footsteps to Oxford or Cambridge. We got a chance to ask AJ questions about the rigorous application process, the infamous interview, how important it is to make the right college choice and, of course, what life is like at Oxford . AJ concluded by saying that for successful applications, no matter what, “you have to prove that you are passionate about what you wish to study” . This was a great opportunity to meet a current Oxford student and OC, and we thank AJ for the great inspiration and insight he has given us all.
