The Cambridge LLM/MCL does not have waitlists unfortunately. You are either in or you are out.

I checked my self-service this morning and it said 'unsuccessful for Trinity College (first choice), seeking college membership'. My second choice was King's - so I'm guessing (based on people that have written here) that the King's offers have already been sent out, and I won't get in? Or should I not yet give up hope?

For the LLM? I also received the initial email on 5 Feb, but only received my official offer last week Wednesday (7 March). Up until that point, my status was also "awaiting approval by GAO". Most unfortunate, as I hope the huge delay doesn't set us back college wise!

But don't stress about it - I reached out to Ms Wade and she confirmed that one shouldn't stress about the delay, it is just due to the huge volumes of applications before the GAO.

Thank you so much.. does this delay also affect the Gates application? will I receive from them if I am not shortlisted or only shortlisted candidates are emailed?

Apparently they have started inviting applicants for interviews. Word on street says we should know by end of this week.

Hey, I put Trinity as my first choice and my self-service says unsuccessful too, so you're not alone. It's a popular college and I don't think they take that many post-graduates, so I'm guessing they have no places left. My second choice is Downing, and I'm still waiting for a response from them..

Yeah, Trinity was definitely a bit ambitious, but alas. Just got word that Kings don't want me either - which one will they throw me into?!

Probably Wolfson, Hughes or St-Edmunds, as I hear they take in a lot of LLM students, both are fine options anyways.

They all do look good, but I'd much prefer a mixed undergrad/postgrad college. Do you think it would be worth contacting anybody to get this across or would it be futile at this point?

Thanks for your help

I don't think you would get anywhere if you did. In the guidance booklet, which accompanies my offer, I recall it saying we can't change our college allocation unless there are 'exceptional circumstances', e.g. we get funding from another college.

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?


Hey, I am Nigerian and I received an offer on the 5th of February too :)

I don't think they take that into account, seeing that they already gave you two choices.

Those of you getting college offers -- have you fulfilled all the conditions of your offer, or do the colleges go through applications even before they become unconditional?
