BCL application 2014 - 2015


Mark W


Best of luck with the outcome and that of Cambridge if you are still waiting, though would I be right in presuming that the BCL is your first choice?


Yes, BCL would be my first choice. And yes, I'm still waiting to hear back from Cambridge. In the event of neither making an offer, I'll be off to UCL where I have a 'back-up' offer

How about you? Is the BCL your first choice? (I saw that you already have a Cambridge offer, well done),

Thanks. Though due to my circumstances the Camb offer was nothing to celebrate, but it is good to have the offer.

Oxford is very much my first choice - I really want to do the BCL. But I really have no idea how my application will be treated by the faculty; I don't think my application is hopeless but I don't think it's very strong either. The wait is making me very nervous.

I'm done speculating :)

I've been wrong every time so far, just going to take things as they come now. Could be this week, or next week, or any time. I'm sure we'll hear before Michaelmas Term 2014 :)

I think to stop speculating is the right choice to make ;) But it's so hard though! I really want to stop checking this forum because it's only making me nervous, but I can't help it.

Right? As Zen as I try to be I can't quite help checking every 5 minutes. Have you noticed that the Cambridge thread has over 107,000 views. I'm pretty sure that's just 1000 people chained to their computers hitting refresh continuously. It is not the best for our collective mental health :) :)

I just saw 5 responses to this thread (which was otherwise dormant since my post last week) and panicked!

Notwithstanding that our speculations are usually wrong, I will have one final shot:

Last year, the results were out this week. The deadline was a week later this year, so I think the results will be out next week.

But that didn't hold true for the MLF with results out earlier than last year...

I think this is likely right. This page (http://www.law.ox.ac.uk/postgraduate/admitfaqs.php) says applicants can expect to hear on or shortly after 16 March. 16 March is this Sunday, so my feeling is we will hear next week.

That said, I would be very happy to be entirely wrong and find out today (tonight in Aus) or tomorrow!

Well it says it black on white so I'm guessing you're right about the 16th of March ;)

The FAQs page hasn't been updated since two years ago, so I think that's the date for entry in 2012 lol.

The 16th was a Friday that year which is usual too, as they like to say results will be out by a Friday or on a Friday (even though it is often earlier).
