2013-2014 Cambridge applicants?


I have received the offer from LSE. I seems that there is not a deadline for LSE.

I've been accepted at Magdalene College. Anyone else going there?


Magdalene college too! :)


Hi, me too! Just got confirmation of college membership this morning.

However now I am just worrying that my application is still 'awaiting consideration by department' because I haven't submitted all the required documents, because on Camsis the explaination of my status is 'A decision on your application might be pending OR we might be waiting for your supporting documents.' And it says that 'The Department may not consider your application until all mandatory documents have been uploaded.'

So has anyone received some sort of email saying that your application is complete and going to be considered? Good luck for all who are still waiting!


It also says to click on "Documents you need to send us" to see what else you have to send. But, when I uploaded all the documents I thought were required, that link disappeared. I have no link that says "Documents you need to send us," so, I'm assuming all of my documents have been fully uploaded.

Congratulations to those who got an offer.

I just called Ms.Wade today and I was informed that there is no certain deadline. They will close for the Easter break from Thursday.



This is a piece of disturbing news as the university only resumes on 15 April 2013.


I am quite certain that what Suzanne Wade meant was the Easter holidays (Thursday to Monday the 1st), not the break until Easter term (23 April, not the 15th..). The entire faculty building is closing till the 1st.

Good for you that you have a backup plan with no deadline.

Well, yeah, I`m speculating, but it seems that we do are on a wait-list. All offer holders according to the LLM-website should accept their offer till 15-th of May. Thereof, it is likely that we will hear something only if someone declines the offer. Or if nobody does that, then we might hear something bad instead...

Good luck to anyone else waiting! Seems like we were pretty close.

Cambridge was the only place I applied. I thought about Oxford, but didn't like that I could specialize in something. To be honest, I wasn't completely sold on an LLM but was interested in an overseas program, and figured I'd give it a try.

Ok. Where r u from? Actually Oxford is better than Cambridge just for law but I heard BCL or MJur is even harder to get in. U should apply to Oxford next year as I am sure you can specialise as well.

Sorry, what I meant to say was I didn't like that I COULDN'T specialize in a specific field - at least I didn't see anywhere on their website that said you could.

I'm from the U.S. - I currently attend Rutgers-Camden Law. I have my B.S. in Political Science and M.A. in Economics. I've become very interested in foreign relations and national security law while in law school, so thought the International specialization would be interesting. I may reapply next year - and possibly some domestic programs, like University of Virginia.

Then u should apply for the BCL as it is for students from common law countries. I have friends who studied BCL before and I understand from them that you can specialise. I suggest you to email the school next year to check.

Domestic US law school - I thought the US LLM programs are usually for foreign students unlike the UK?

Anyway, good luck for next year. I don't think there is much hope for anyone of us even if we are on the waiting list. It is likely only one or two slots are left.

Some domestic LLM programs are only for foreign students (particularly a general LLM or SOME in international law), but many aren't (tax, corporate law, etc.).

Thanks! Good luck to you too.

I hadn't even considered overseas programs until a professor of mine talked to me about it. Unfortunately, that was not long before deadlines... so, I had to quickly turn in applications and didn't get apps in to all the universities I wanted.
