application unsuccessful as well. am just relieved that the looong wait is finally over. best of luck to those still waiting! :)


Sorry to hear that. R u going to LSE or UCL as well?


nope. am going to KCL instead and i'm happy about it because they have more modules on trade and investment law which is what i want to specialize in. UCL is also an option but am pretty much 99% sure about king's. however, as someone in this forum once said, cam IS cam :) so good luck to you guys!



Good luck to you and just my personal opinion, I will choose LSE or UCL over King's anytime because I think they have stronger international reputation. I always see the world as my employer so targeting a university with the best international reputation is the aim :). But I think you will enjoy your time in King's since it is also one of the top in the UK and the world.

lakaria: aha! i just knew you were going to say that :) am well aware of the ranking and the reputation of UCL and LSE, the latter being more well known in my country. but i guess to each his own :) am rooting for the rest of you in this forum who are still waiting to hear from cambridge! hope you hear great news soon!

boscm: no email as well. just checked camsis when i saw that some people in this forum had a change in their status. so, i suggest that you check camsis regularly :) good luck!

edit:
boscm: i have just received an email from cambridge letting me know that i was rejected (not quite the email i was waiting for. haha!) -
"Thank you for sending your application for admission. The University has given it careful consideration and, I am sorry to tell you that they have decided that they are not able to offer you a place.The University receives thousands of applications, all from very able prospective graduate students, and the competition for the limited number of places is intense. This means that we are not able to offer admission to many good candidates."

Haha, it is a good guess I must say. I need to qualify my statement earlier. When I said UCL and LSE are more reputation, it is only by a very slight margin and most often than not, that margin is unnoticeable by many. So you are in good hands in King's. I am curious where you are from since you said LSE is more known in your country. I check camsis on an hourly basis but no luck so far. I am not hopeful to be honest and just want an answer that's all.

I think it is interesting to note that relatively few UK students are accepted. The figures are available on: www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/planning/sso/studentnu

In 2010/2011 - Roughly 19 % of LL.M students were classified as Home/ Islands students in terms of their fee eligibility.

91 - Overseas/ 69 EU/ 37 Home - Total 197

The 2011/2012 figures were:

81 Overseas/ 44 EU/ 34 Home - Total - 159.

So roughly - 21%

The figures for 2012/13 were:

88 Overseas/ 49 EU / 17 Home - Total - 154 students.

So roughly 11 %.

As far as I understand, you are given a window period to retract your acceptance, if you fail to do so, then your acceptance is deemed final.

I found no information regarding this matter on the Cambridge Webpage. Do you know how long this period would be?

Is there anyone who bring your family to Cambridge?

Accoding to the information provided by International Student Team, "From 04 July 2011, the UKBA only permits a student applying for an initial grant of leave under Tier 4 to apply to bring their dependent family members where the course is at least 12 months long and the course is at post-graduate level study at NQF level 7 or above or if you are a new government sponsored student whose course is longer than 6 months."

The duration of LLM/MCL in Cambridge is 9 month. It means that if you're not govenment-sponsored student, you cannot bring your family to Cambridge.

Is there anyone facing the same problem?
If I can't bring my family (my wife and son), I'll give up Cambridge...

I've never heard of such a thing, frankly. If you accept the offer and just don't show up at the start of term there is absolutely nothing they can do to you, as with most other LLM programmes in the UK. I would just accept it first and feel free to withdraw later if it doesn't suit your plans or you've decided to go elsewhere.
