Cambridge application 2018/2019


LLM2238
My second preferred college turned to unsuccessful this morning on the self-service account. I wonder where I'll end up now...


My self-service also says my send pref rejected me (Trinity lol not surprised), but it said nothing about my first pref. Does that mean my first pref has rejected me also, or is there hope? I'm now sure whether they only give your application to your second pref after your first pref has rejected you, or whether they give your app to both prefs to consider at the same time.


Trinity was my first choice and they said no too. The self service then said something like "unsuccessful at Trinity College, seeking college membership", now it's changed to unsuccessful at my second choice college, but with no reference to Trinity.

So I'd assume your first choice was unsuccessful too. My understanding is your second choice will only consider you once your first choice has said no anyway.

I'm in the same boat, and all I can gather is that we'll definitely end up in one of the four mature colleges.

pm'ed you

I received an email today from Luisa for the Gates Cambridge scholarship but l haven't received any correspondence for my MCL application. My applicant portal still says under department review.

Is it likely that Gates Cambridge considers our applications after we receive program offers? I thought it was the other way round.

I am also in the same situation. I am getting worried because it still reads under review by the department.

Hi! Trinity College was my first choice, but I haven't been allocated to any college yet. Were these results announced by email? Did you receive both offers at the same time (membership and scholarship)?

Where did you gather that? I see that all of the mature ones have applications and acceptences in balance according to the cambridge website – and should therefore be frequently selected by the system – but isn't that true for several others? (I see no reason why the colleges for graduates should be excluded, for example)

I could be wrong - but I read that all pooled mature applicants (i.e. all of us) get pooled automatically to the mature colleges. Cannot find source link, sorry!

I read this too actually, that mature colleges like St. Edmund's take in a disproportionately large number of LLM students.
