I know we should hear back by around the end of next week, but I feel like the waiting is killing me. It's the last school I have left to hear from so would just like to know either way so I can figure out what I'm going to do next year.

With you dude. The wait is killing me! The last three days have felt like weeks. Not sure whether we'll hear at the end of the week though, I've got this nasty feeling they're going to log the department decisions on the 19th and only start sending out letters by post on the 22nd. Where I'm based that adds another two to three weeks.

Whatever happens, I'm sooo going to have a big night when i get that letter. Good luck guys.

On the bright side, the posts from last year said that at least some people got emails telling them that they had been accepted. I couldn't figure out (because the threads trailed off) if the people who were rejected also eventually got emails or if they were only told by post. Alternatively, it may have been that people who mailed in paper applications received their responses by post rather than by email, but, again, it wasn't clear. Regardless, hopefully we'll get some emails at the end of next week...

Jeez dude. End of next week might be a bit optemistic. I really hope they just e-mail everyone and get it over with. What is the appropriate time to wait before contacting oxford directly to get your result? One week after the 19th, Two?

I applied last year and didn't get a place - everyone received their rejections by letter through the post...no rejection emails were sent unless you emailed Geraldine Malloy directly. This was the same for offers - all offers were made by letter through the post, and the only offers given by email were in response to requests sent by email. I hope that makes sense. Good luck!

Oh, that did not make my day... I am in the United States and have had *horrible* luck with international mail the past six months. For instance, I sent application materials to Toronto by priority mail and they took well over a week to get there. When one of my referees mailed his letter to KCL, it took almost a month for them to receive it. I have absolutely no idea why international post is being so slow (esp. since I am in New York City, not exactly a backwater), but the thought of waiting for weeks for a letter that is "in the post" is just unbearable. I think I'd rather just assume I wasn't accepted.

I'm sure in that case you could email or call Geraldine Malloy after the 19th regarding the status of your application - it's completely understandable if it will take several days or weeks for the letter to arrive...

Hey all. Looks like I'm not going to Oxford - received a rejection this morning via email. But I'm okay with that, as it makes the whole decision process easier. Oh well.

Same email here. Not very hopeful for Cambridge... I guess I am heading to the Graduate Inst in Geneva with full scholarship.

Does anyone know when Cambridge will make its final decisions? I know they have made lots of them from december on, but I suppose there must be another round...
