Admitted to Oxford


gregory

Hi,

Thank you Zelda and Joseph1 for your answers.

I am from the EU and would be an MJur student at Oxford. I think you are right, Joseph, it comes down to the courses and to the college (apart from funding). I would take up international dispute settlement and banking as well, probably, corporate finance, and external relations of the EU.

However, you have prof. Crawford for the dispute settlement course at Cambridge, who is a well respected expert of the topic.

I have no college answer from Cambridge as yet. Have you heard anything?

Hi,
I have been admitted to Cambridge and still haven't heard from a college - but see the thread "Offers from Cambridge" where some people said that they had heard. I was wondering whether anyone knew whether at Oxford and/or Cambridge, it is automatic that you get into the courses that you want, or whether there is a possibility that the course is too full and that you might not get it? (I know that at NYU, it is a possible that you might not get the courses you want).

Hi everybody! I got my admission to Oxford on 19th March (great day...). Up to now I haven't received an offer from a college (I applied for Jesus college) but I guess that will take some more days.
I guess that I'll also take the Comparative Financial Law course because I already did some work in banking law. So there are still three choices to make...

@ Gregory:
Are u sure Corporate Finance is offered in Ox? I think it was only available at Cam.
As to International Dispute Settlement, for sure Crawford is mighty well known, but Lowe is as well (although some students find he is a bit too academic)

@ NickdiAngelo:
Congrats and welcome to our small Oxford-admits online community! :)))))
I also did some finance-related work, and, moreover, Prof. Wood, who seems to be teaching both at Cam and Ox, is a leading expert and his classes are said to be brilliant.

Does anyone know if Transnational Commercial Law is going to be offered in 2005/2006?

As to class availability, there's no students number limit, for what I've heard, but it might be difficult to arrange for a tutor in certain subjects.

I have heard that sometimes Constitutional Theory has a limit. Haven't heard of anyone having any trouble with any other subjects.

I am yet to hear from a college at Ox or Cam. But my acceptance letter from Oxford (dated March 15) said I would be hearing from a college in about 6 weeks (around now) so I'm not too worried.

Oh and Zelda, Corporate Finance is taught at Oxford but was not available last year. They haven't released the 05-06 list yet so it's not clear whether it will be available this year or not.

Gregory, Kazaf, Nick, Iops, etc.

Have you heard from colleges yet?

I can't figure out whether to be concerned or not. Priya, Shiv and Zelda heard ages ago but I've heard nothing yet.

I think Kazaf mentioned somewhere he has heard from his first-choice college - Christ's Church.

As some colleges (incl. mine) notify those accepted by ordinary mail rather than e-mail, it may take some time.

It was indeed surprising in my case that i got the confirmation from the college first and thereafter got a letter from the Faculty of Laws, a couple of days later.....

I haven't heard anything from my college up to now. But as the admission letter from the Graduate Admissions Office stated that the offer from the college would be posted approximately six weeks after the first offer I am not too worried (although tomorrow six weeks have elapsed). Maybe it takes some more time if the college of your first choice has rejected your application and the latter is forwarded to other colleges? I guess we'll have to be patient for some more days...

I finally got my offer. It's gonna be Keble College for me. I am not too enthusiastic about it because I would have preferred to be in a really old college.

@ Joseph1: Have you received an offer, too?

Hi Nick,
congrats on your acceptance.

I feel the college makes no difference at all.
we are going to have common classes and will be running around the whole of Oxford for our lectures.
Kebble is also a great college.
frankly the antiquity of a college should not weigh in your mind at all.
cheers

@ Joseph1: I guess that you will be notified during the next days. You have chosen Balliol, haven't you? My first choice was Jesus College. But after I have checked out the Keble webpage I think this college will also be o.k. for me ;-)

Is it right that I only have to accept the college offer or do I have to write a letter to the Graduate Admissions Office?

The letter from the Law Faculty was kind of ambiguous on that point, so I e-mailed both the Law Faculty and the college (it turned out, however, that I needn't have since the head of the Law Faculty is of Balliol college, so he already knew I had accepted the offer).

BTW, where are you from, NickDiAngelo? :-)

Hi Zelda,
thank you for the information. I guess that I'll also notify the Law faculty (it's better to be on the safe side...).
I am from Hamburg, Germany.
