hi everyone!!

i've been following this thread for a while and it's good to know other people are going through the same craziness i am :))

to those of you who sent an email to the faculty and were told your application was unsuccesful: did u email suzanne wade directly (on her shw27 email) or did u email her through the llmadmissions email? it's just i've emailed her and got no reply so far....!

to anyone who got an offer: where u given a time period within which to enrol or to accept/reject the offer?

to lil81: just being nosy, but if i understood correctly, between 1 and 2 april you got an offer? (congrats btw :))

oh and congrats to everyone who got an offer so far!! :)

Hi, I wasn't given an acceptance deadline and I don't think anyone else was, since the email just says congrats, you're in, but wait for your official offer letter from the Board of Graduate Studies. By the looks of it, no one has received this infamous letter yet. Just checked my Camsis and it still hasn't been updated!
I don't think that Cambridge waits for people to turn down their offers before making new offers. I think it reviews the applications in several rounds and until you've received an email saying you've been rejected, there's no reason to think your application has not been successful.
Good luck

Hi,
I've received my official letter yesterday. I've read it quite carefully but I didn't notice any acceptance deadline. My Camsis has been updated. I received my conditional offer e-mail on 6 January.
Good luck to everyone

Do the letters stipulate the college you have been allocated to?

That's my thinking too. I suspect they just make a set number of offers but more than predicted places in the knowledge that not all will be taken up. If they get a greater take-up of offers than expected then presumably the classes will be a little more numerous or larger.

If this is true, then perhaps they are still reviewing some applications in the undecided pile (or a wave of rejection letters is imminent). I don't know how the email rejections work, but I've asked for an email when the decision is made, but have yet to hear anything...

I haven't had guts to email them... purely because many who have received bad tidings in response, and in my delirium about this damn application I have become quite superstitious. I suspect many rejections have already gone out. Besides Beicon and a few other regular contributors, very few people have posted saying their application was unsuccessful. I doubt I would. I'd just reach for the scotch.

The alternative is, as TWT suggests, 15 April (or one day sooner) will bring a tonne of rejection emails.

Melbsolicitor, that is exactly how I feel - you nailed it. If I wasn't in China I'd say post 15th we should all meet up and drown our disappointment in Bourbon. I am increasingly thinking that only people who contact the office get their rejection express, the rest will just receive an automated email after the deadline.

Just for you to know - I haven't heard anything from Cambridge either. I suspect we'll hear shortly after (or on) April 15. I do hope there will be an email, not a letter. it takes quite long for an ordinary post to arrive from the UK to where I live... Anyway, good luck to those who are waiting!

I have been reading through last year's posts (how sad, I know) and apparently offers were made up until early May, though even then the deadline was 15th of April. Earlier on someone wrote that the office said that all applicants were to receive a definite answer by last Thursday. Nevertheless, the number of people still waiting makes me think that I have not just being forgotten. It may very well be that Cambridge is still assessing our applications as opposed to be waiting until the very last minute to send rejections in bulk.

All in all, I dare to hope that the termination of our suffering may be pushed even further than 15th of April - like last year. It may be useful to learn whether unsuccessful candidates who have just been notified received an email WITHOUT prompting the office. If that's the case, then the rest of us guys hanging on in limbo (I do not refer to the West Indian dance but the antechamber to Dante's inferno) should stick to soda for a while more, just in case good news actually comes through. Why not. As we say back home, speranza è l'ultima a morire.

I am also waiting for a reply from Cambridge. I emailed Ms Wade twice. She did not reply to any of the emails.
I do not think unsuccessful candidates are emailed. The website says so. I think you need to contact them first.
I hope for an offer but at this stage, I have serious doubts. My consolation is that the wait will soon be over.

Hi.

Im one of the (happy) unsuccessful applicants that has already been put out of their misery! About your question, I didnt email Ms Wade, but I did ring the Faculty and talk to a girl (who Im not sure whether or not it was Ms Wade) about a week before being sent the following email:

'Dear Mr Bond (James Bond)

I have now received your application file back from the LLM Admissions Committee and I regret to inform you that your application has not been successful. I am very sorry to have to send you this disappointing news.

Yours sincerely

Suzanne Wade'

Hi Melbsolicitor.

Ive been following your drama with your Cambridge application mate! Waiting sucks. I wish you nothing but luck, but should you end up with a rejection email on your screen, dont drink it off mate.

I think youve been offered a place on UCL LLM programme, right? Come and join us in London. Itll be a pleasure meeting you and many others whove been hanging around this website for a long time, sharing experiences, anxieties, offers and rejections.

Regards,

You've a been a great contributor to this thread.

Although just after I put my Cambridge application in, I did have a panic attack and begin looking at other LLM programs (UCL being my pick), I never put the application in. There were a few factors, but it's in a past now. I will probably kick myself a bit if and when I receive a rejection email from Cambridge. I'm sure we would have had ball at UCL.

Hey 'idiot',

Did you contact the admission office before receiving the email or did it come out of the blue?

Has anyone else received their official offer letter and if so, when did you receive the offer by email? I have applied to a number of scholarships and have had to send a print-out of the email, which looks pretty bad because the email, dated beginning of February, states that it is not an official offer.

I received my formal offer letter this weekend (mailed to the USA), which was about a 1 1/2 weeks after my CAMSIS account was updated and 3 months after I received Ms. Wade's email (early January).

Good luck with your scholarship applications.
