Cambridge application 2018/2019

Hello everyone. I also had the same query regarding submission of IELTS score and had sent an email to the admission office. This is the response that I have received from the faculty:

Please send your language test results document to the Faculty of Law as an email attachment and we will upload it for you as you cannot upload documents after you have submitted your application. Please send your document to us using the following address:

llm@law.cam.ac.uk

Thanks


Did you send your email to them before 15 November or after?


I sent the mail to the Faculty of Law on November 29th.


Then, it is indeed possible to submit the scores after the application deadline.

Hi,
I also received the same response. Also, they told me indirectly that it would affect the assessment of the application if they are receiving the IELTS late. I have the date for IELTS on January only. Will it affect my application if i submit by then?
I will quote what they told me here -

The Cambridge Law Faculty imposes more demanding English language requirements than other Faculties in the University. These specific requirements supersede any less demanding general University requirements. This is to ensure that applicants have the necessary facility to deal at a sophisticated level with complex legal materials.

Hey, so I’m doing the LLM at Cam this year and can tell you that many of my friends hadn’t met the language requirements by the application deadline. Some only met the requirements after getting an offer, actually. I can’t say whether it hurts your application in some way or not, but I’m positive it won’t preclude you from receiving an offer.

Hey,

My app is still under the 'Submitted' status. When did you submit yours? Was it just or long before the deadline?

Hey guys and good luck to everyone. Does anyone know if we get access to the applicant portal? Because I have not received any email with my personal password as I know was happening the previous years. How do I manage to observe the progress of my application?

You don't need one. Just go on the portal and log in with the details you have inserted when creating the LLM app.

Is anyone else's application still 'under review by department'? Do you think I should be concerned that mine is still at that step?

I recall reading in previous threads that applicants have reported that their applications inexplicably stalled at that step for an eternity, then moved to 'under review by degree committee' and on to BOGS relatively swiftly. I am clinging to that, but would take more comfort if others could chime in if they're in the same boat!

I was offered a place in 2017-18 but was unable to accept at the time, so had been reasonably hopeful of readmission until becoming concerned at realising that I'm still stuck on 'under review by department'...

Upon checking today, mine is still under review by department as well. Oooh let's not try to read anything negative from it, hehe. :)

Looks like only the guy with just one post was worthy enough to reach the next step a few weeks ahead of everyone else, or... :p

I don't think anyone has to worry so far:)

Yes, I agree that it is coincidental. Conversely, I have heard that some applicants that a faculty wishes to put forward for competitive university-wide scholarships, such as the Gates, receive expedited admissions reviews.

It's too early to tell, so everyone should stay calm!

Current Cambridge undergrad applying for the LLM here. I wouldn't worry too much about progress of this year's applications compared to last year's, from speaking to someone involved in admissions last year it sounds like there were a couple of people on the admissions team that were really organised over xmas so the applications they were involved in were moved on much quicker than others. I believe that due to the lateness of the final decisions last year there have been some changes in the decision making process (although I don't know exactly what) so the timing between years isn't really comparable. I can't explain the person who seems to have moved on, but they are certainly the only person I've heard of who has done so.
