Cambridge application 2018/2019


LegalLife

The Faculty learnt its lessons from the mess of last year's admission process. It is exercising caution this year so that people can hear back around the same time rather than "tranched" movements.

I bet progress will start to be seen at the end of the month or shortly after the February Degree Committee meeting. The University still has to deal with undergrad and PHD admissions, all of which require interviews.


Based upon what are you saying this? Do you work at the admissions office or is it just a rumour? Because from what I've gathered offers only go out at the earliest somewhere in March.


Hello, when I studied on the LLM not long ago, I got my admission at the beginning of February. So let's say experience as one of the sources.

Also, note that I said PROGRESS and not OFFERS. Remember Faculty goes through the applications which are then sent to Degree Committee and then GAO/BOGS.

Haha that’s your source?

That’s ballsy then saying that the faculty has learnt it’s lesson.

You’re so full of crap.

What is the source of all your anger? I choose not to identify myself and the source of my information. This forum was meant to share and I shared. Also, I am sure if you bothered to read, my statement is supported by another current student who has spoken to admissions as well.

It does not call for insults and the amount of anger you are displaying. I hope you find some peace in your life.

Hey everyone,

I applied to Cambridge on a whim (have a first class honours LLB from a top 250 university and one years experience as a lecturers assistant).

I know this may be a case of cart before the horse, but how does everyone plan to fund their degree if successful? I am holding out hope for some sort of scholarship or else I may not be able to attend.

Eoin.


Hi Eoin. If scolarships are unattainable, there is always the option of loaning the necessary money. There are plenty of foundations and institutions worldwide that offer interest free loans.

Sure, it's a less desirable option than just getting the money for free, but if you are like me and you are not exceptionally smart with unbelievable scores (though a top student nonetheless) nor exceptionally needy (like coming from an African country for exampe) then getting scolarships is not that easy, as they are mostly targeted towards those two groups I find.

Don't forget that, depending on the taxation laws in your home country, self-education expenses are very often tax deductible against your income. Depending on your income in the taxation year in which you ask Cambridge to invoice you (2017-18 vs 2018-19), this could save you a lot. :)

Perhaps forget about this forum and focus your energy on getting rejected from the cantab phd again!

Hey thanks a million for the thoughtful responses lads. Yeah an interest free loan definitely sounds good to me - which foundations/institutions are you thinking of?

Hi Eoin. I'm applying for a foundation that is only active in my country (Belgium). I don't know what the deal is exactly in your country. Truth be told I think you might be running a bit late if you still want to apply for a loan for next year.

Hi Ribben,
Is the foundation available to Belgians only or to any student who's pursuing a degree in Belgium? I'm currently studying in Flanders, but I'm not a Belgian though..

Hi Ribben,

You should watch your language. Persons from African countries ARE NOT exceptionally needy. There are exceptionally needy people everywhere in the world, including your home country. You have no right to assume that "exceptional need" is the exclusive preserve of Africans. SMH

Thank you.

Would anyone of you be kind enough to explain me the review process of Cambridge? As of today, my application is under review by the department (according to the application status). What is the next logical flow? How lengthy is this entire process?

No need to get on your horse. What I mean by "exceptionally needy" is that for the average person coming from African countries it is impossible to pay the tuition fee without some kind of help. Don't get me wrong, the tuition fees are really high, even for us Europeans, but at least our wages are high enough that anyone who works for a couple of years, saves well and is able to loan some money on the side should be able to pay the costs. The average wage in 90% of Africa though is so low that you would have to save an overly long period of time, I'm talking years and years, before even coming close to it.

I went on an exchange two years ago to South Africa for my PhD research, and my PhD grant was larger than how much the law professors there were making.

So yeah I stand by my assessment that _generally speaking_ Africans would need a form of government or institutional aid to be able to cover the costs, while for us Europeans in high income countries, it is still hard, but not impossible.

Have a nice day!

Hi Shagorika, from what I've gathered the exact order and timing of the process is quite unclear and apparantly changes year to year. Basically it doesn't help checking the application status every day because regardless you'll get an email if you get offered or not. Don't worry too much about it, just sit back and enjoy the wait ;-)

Believe me, I have gone through 6 years worth of forum posts to conclude that:

1) Some people get offers as early in February, most in March but some also in April. Basically the timing of the offers is somewhere from February to April, but probably in early March.
2) Sometimes the application status changes multiple times before an offer is made and sometimes it just stays at the same status all the time and you suddenly get an offer.
3) The only way you will really know whether or not you are accepted is when the mail informing you on your offer status is sent :-)

So in the mean time, I propose we all use this forum from time to time to relieve stress, but honestly, I wouldn't worry too much about timing/ application status/ etc.

Have a nice day everyone

PS: I have never been rejected from Cambridge and will never be.

[quote][quote][quote][quote][quote][quote]The Faculty learnt its lessons from the mess of last year's admission process. It is exercising caution this year so that people can hear back around the same time rather than "tranched" movements.

I bet progress will start to be seen at the end of the month or shortly after the February Degree Committee meeting. The University still has to deal with undergrad and PHD admissions, all of which require interviews.[/quote]

Based upon what are you saying this? Do you work at the admissions office or is it just a rumour? Because from what I've gathered offers only go out at the earliest somewhere in March. [/quote]

Hello, when I studied on the LLM not long ago, I got my admission at the beginning of February. So let's say experience as one of the sources.

Also, note that I said PROGRESS and not OFFERS. Remember Faculty goes through the applications which are then sent to Degree Committee and then GAO/BOGS.[/quote]

Haha that’s your source?

That’s ballsy then saying that the faculty has learnt it’s lesson.

You’re so full of crap.[/quote]

What is the source of all your anger? I choose not to identify myself and the source of my information. This forum was meant to share and I shared. Also, I am sure if you bothered to read, my statement is supported by another current student who has spoken to admissions as well.

It does not call for insults and the amount of anger you are displaying. I hope you find some peace in your life. [/quote]

Hahaha I’m delighted to see that your second post extrapolates just as wildly as your original post!

Perhaps forget about this forum and focus your energy on getting rejected from the cantab phd again!
