Cambridge Application 2021-2022


Applicantf...

Does everyone get the Rowan Williams scholarship mail?


Yes, I understand everyone does, in case you're eligible.


Hi, new to the discussion. Could you clarify what do you mean by in case one's eligible. Does it mean if one is not eligible, one does not receive the scholarship email? 


Hi! I apologize, I meant that everyone receives the email to check whether they are eligible or not.

Hi everyone! 

I have just noticed that the status of my LLM application at the Application Portal is updated. Now it says "Awaiting approval by GAO - Awaiting approval by the Central Graduate Admissions Office." I hope this is good news.

Just wanted to let you guys know since it is a painful wait since the 3rd of December.

Congrats! From last year's thread, I think that is very good news. I read that all applicants whose status changed to 'Awaiting Approval by GAO' ultimately received offers. 

Thanks for the update! Mine is still 'under review by department'. Trying to stay positive!!!

Fantastic news, indeed! From last years threads, it basically means you're in. Congrats!
Still under review here. Fingers crossed!

Hi gary666, it seems a good sign! Congratulations!

Anyone who applied MCL has status change yet?
I have applied both MCL and LLM. Both are under review.

I've also applied to the MCL as well but it is still under review. 

For the LLM program, my last name starts with A, and my application status changed to "under review" in early January, before anyone else in here. So, my guess is that they review the applications alphabetically even though I submitted my application just hours before the deadline.

@gary666 just wondering if you can share any additional info with us regarding your status change! it feels very early compared with all past years (applications are generally submitted to the GOA around the 20th/25th of February).... just asking since there are always many trolls on this chat and I don’t wanna get anxious for no reason lol

Hi everyone from Chile! I received an offer from LSE last week (I applied to LSE on December 2nd) and I'm still waiting for a decision from Cambridge and Oxford. My application status is "under review by the department" and my last name starts with G.

Fingers crossed!

Of course. If you are only considering the previous year and the year before that, you are absolutely right. However, that was not the case for the years before that. For instance, for 2018/2019 cycle, they released the offers (yes, not GOA, the actual offer e-mails) as early as February 5. You can check it here: https://llm-guide.com/board/uk-ireland/cambridge-application-2018-2019-209420/7 (also please notice that some members were skeptical about first post from an offer receiver )
I was not expecting to see any change but I was, and still is, very anxious about my Chevening shortlist notification since the timeline for the scholarship explicitly states that the notifications of interviews will be sent "early to mid February". Therefore, I constantly check my e-mail and Chevening application portal. All of a sudden, I felt an urge to check Cambridge application portal today and saw the status change. I do not know when exactly it happened but I noticed it today. In order to remove any doubts, I am also sharing a screenshot of the relevant part at my application portal: https://imgshare.io/image/prg3df
My status also changed from "submitted" to "under review by department" before January 10, but I cannot recall the exact date. However, it was before anyone else posted about it under this thread.
I hope this helps, best of luck to all!

Congradulations!

If you wouldn't mind, could you briefly outline your education background and work experience? I assume they are very strong since your application was progressed so promptly.

Just curious, but are there really any indications suggesting that they put people in GAO alphabetically? From 'submitted' to 'under review', perhaps, but that's a significantly larger batch. I assumed it would be a somewhat more "randomised" process of whenever new applications gradually pass through the filter as they go through them.
