Cambridge application 2018/2019

I've previously phone called Ms. Wade. She's told me that the email indicating acceptance is conclusive. No need to worry! :)


Thank you! :) I'm actually more concerned about college placements, like I think the later you get your formal offer, the later colleges are able to consider you, the smaller your chances of getting into an appropriate college, but that may just be overthinking on my part!

Yeah. Legalife (a person who has previously attended Cambridge to do the LLM) has assured us that the GAO only serves the administrative function of coordinating the admissions. I don't think Sarah Worthington would have been so definitive in her email unless what Legalife is saying is true (there might be some kind of legitimate expectation argument to be made her, subject to the "public body" JR requirement, but I digress).

I have no idea about the college thing, but good point lol.

Indeed. GAO is administrative in nature and unless you forged anything in your application, just start booking October flights to Cambridge. LOL

My opinion of colleges was that I would have been fine being placed in any college. After attending Cambridge, I honestly failed to understand what the college hullabaloo was about except getting bragging rights that you went to so and so college. Colleges added nothing to you academically as a graduate (they do play a very significant role for undergraduates though) and my only benefit of colleges was accomodation, food and networking. I actually realised I spent more time at friends' colleges than at mine, because of discussion groups or just exploring. At the end of the day, it is only 9 months and it didnt matter for me where I would have ended up. I attended formals in the colleges that I wanted to ( your classmates can get you formal tickets) and attended MayBalls of other colleges (your friends can get you tickets too). You can pretty much eat in any college (you have to be accompanied by a member of that college).

The best thing is that at the end of the day, you will get a college. Do not worry much about it.

Hello Guys,

I got my offer mail on the 5th of February and still waiting for a formal offer. :(

Are there Nigerians here that have received offers?


I think many of us are in that position. Don't worry! Cambridge's just a bit slow with these administrative things.


Thank you

Thanks. Some colleges have funding opportunities. Does a delay in being assigned to a college limit our chances of getting such funds? This was a major consideration for me in choosing a college.

Well, colleges have not yet started making funding decisions so you are still well within time.
