Admitted to Cambridge 2010/2011


Hey,

just thought id let you guys know, i checked my CAMSIS and it's been updated. It states that a conditional offer has been made, and now seeking college membership.

Im sure all the applications are slowly starting to trickle through BGS now and everyones will be updated.

I was hoping mine had too, but it still says "You have been recommended for an offer subject to Board of Graduate Studies approval." I really do hope that the BGS approval is just a formality.
Best of luck to those still waiting.

Hello,

Yay for finally receiving offer letters.

I was wondering:

1) if anyone has received a college offer?

2) if college fees are over and above the amount quoted in the offer letter for the yearly cost of the course?

I also noticed the Gates scholarships have been announced. Is anyone aware of when the balance of the Cambridge Trust Scholarships are decided?

Thanks!

Hey all, I have updates :)

After noting that TochB and 18120 had phoned the faculty, I decided I should pluck up the courage to do so too.
It turns out they actually made me an offer a while back, but the email got sent to another email address by mistake!!
So I encourage you all who haven't yet heard anything to just phone, you never know!

That being said, my camsis still hasn't been updated at all--it still says 'papers with degree committee'. Neither have i received an offer letter (perhaps hardly surprising anyway with all the ash cloud drama). But to those of you who are in my situation, apparently there's nothing to worry about, they're still updating the camsis accounts :)

I haven't received an offer from a college yet, although my camSIS account was only updated to reflect the conditional offer two days ago.

As for college fees, they are included in the yearly cost. If you go to the "Tracking Your Finances" link after you've received the conditoinal offer, it includes (or at least mine does) 2,250 pounds for college fees.

As I mentioned in my previous post, it looks like Cambridge Trust funding offers can be made as late as August and September. A former LLM student at Cambridge has also confirmed with me that funding can come pretty late in the game.

Thanks CanuckLLLM, sorry I missed your earlier post.
I checked and I have the same amount noted for College fees under Tracking Your Finances".

I got my acceptance e-mail a month ago, and CAMSIS still says my papers are with the degree comm. I emailed Ms Wade a few weeks ago with questions about funding* and haven't got a reply, so I'm guessing they're pretty busy.


*Home students - about £15k, right?

Congrats everhopeful!

Still no word here. How about you, TWT and Juliette?

I am finally beginning to think (unless I miraculously have an offer by email that went astray!) that hope is fading fast as the delay in me receiving a response is probably due to the lag between the law faculty stamping 'NO' on my application, sending it back to the BGS, who will in turn contact me. As the law faculty only emails successful applicants, you would expect them to hear before those who are rejected as the latter has a few extra steps in the process.

I'm going to call Ms Wade about 6pm today (my time) as it will be 9am in Cambridge. Time to end this nonsense and get on with life :-)

No words yet, and I sent an email some three days ago :/ I am not a keen user of emoticons faces to express my feelings but

:/ :( :/ :/ :/ :( :( and :(

(How do you make the angry one?) Melb, even if it comes from me, an advocate of resignation and preemptive despair, don't give up hope! As I commented on numerous occasions, some people still get offers as late as May, though that's insane and as my boyfriend tells me (he is the unfortunate bearer of my Cambridge hysteria) I should sue them for emotional distress :) Of course he is American and
a school teacher, when I try to explain to him why that would not be possible, after a while he just loses interest. I still love him dearly. In conclusion, THERE IS HOPE! Look at Everhopeful's situation!!!!! Until you're out, you're IN.

Please let us know how your phone call goes. Today I will work on getting brave enough to call myself...

I've heard nothing so far, and I think I'm done with waiting. It gets really tiring after a while...

I am going to accept an offer from another university today. It should save me a lot of time, as I hope I will stop frantically checking my CAMsis every hour. Perhaps, that will even give me a chance to get some work done...;)

Melb - good luck with your call. If I got my timing right, you will be calling SW about now.

melb-GOOD LUCK with that call!

and actually i'd really like to thank you, juliette and twt (and all the other contributors), because with us being all in the no-news-going-crazy-situation it really helped to talk here :) (made a change from driving, in my case, my mum crazy!)

keep me posted!!!

Flims, your other options are Oxford and LSE, so you've done well. Are you going for the Oxford option then? Best of luck!
As for the others, really hope you get your replies soon. I'd just call if I were you. Hoping Melb gets a yes!

Congrats to all who got in. I plan on reapplying in October for next year entry. Do you think I stand a chance or it will be a waste of time because I have been rejected before.

Tbh, I did not really expect to get an offer. I am presently in my final year at the University of Nottingham. I applied with my second year results and my average for the year was 65.4. Not that great for Cambridge I know. But this year, I am almost on a first from my first semester results and I don't have to do much to graduate with an overall first. I am going on to do the LPC course at College of Law, Birmingham in September. I just decided to apply this time as a trial.

Do you think that even if I graduate with a first this year, the fact that my second year average is not too high coupled with the fact that I was rejected before ruin my chances of getting in for 2011-2012? That's getting me quite worried


Opinions will be highly appreciated.

Folks,

I just got off the phone Ms Wade, who confirmed that I won't be receiving an offer.

Strange as it sounds, I'm not as disappointed as I thought I might be. Truth be told, I really feel that I have much more to learn working at my law firm right now and I was slightly uncomfortable at the prospect of leaving in October and returning to study before I'd really consolidated my JD degree. I'm not even 18 months out of law school, so it really was too soon anyway. Perhaps it was best that I only applied to Cambridge.

It's been said on this forum that US schools look a little more broadly at the applications, and take work experience and other non-academic achievements into account more that the UK schools do. I was just shy of first class honours anyway, so I would have counted myself very lucky to be admitted to Cambridge. Now's not the time to be making decisions, but I may just put my head down, backside up, and hone my legal skills for another year or so and then throw my hat in the ring at Harvard and Yale. Who knows, I might even try Oxford too. We'll see.

To Beicon, The Nagle, TimeWillTell, JulietteH and all the rest of you - it's been a pleasure. I'll also be forever grateful to my Mum, who helped me prepare my application and has ridden all the bumps along the way.

I congratulate those who have been offered a place and have my fingers crossed for those who haven't has a response yet.

Cheers,

Melbsolicitor

Ah, Melbsolicitor, so sorry to hear that. But I think you're right that you'll stand a good chance next year, especially at US schools. And you've got a great job in the meantime (if I hadn't got in this year, I would've been sooooo bored for another year).
All the best to you!

I think you'll stand a good chance with a first, but it seems to be a minimum requirement, so try to do some other things in the meantime that make you stand out. I know some brilliant people who haven't got into Cambridge, so it is in many ways a little unpredictable! Good luck
