Cambridge Application 2021-2022


HSouza

I just received from Gates scholarship an email 1f643saying that I was rejected for the scholarship , but my llm decision is still under review. I don’t assume nothing from it, especially as I have been rejected last year 


Same here. I didn’t think I have much of a shot with the Gates scholarship anyway, but I don’t recall any e-mails of rejection the last time I applied.

Seems like they're a bit late with the rejections, then, since they shortlisted the semi-finalists and emailed them about the shortlisting some 1-2 weeks ago.

Yup, just received a Gates Cambridge rejection email too. My application still says "under review" on the portal. So presuming the two aren't related in any way? (aka the Gates Cambridge rejection has says nothing about the likelihood of success/ rejection of my LLM application?)

They're not related. Gates only shortlists 100 or so people across the uni (which they did a while ago), and there's no guarantee someone from the law fac makes it there every year. But they're related in the sense that if you did receive the semifinalist email some weeks ago, the faculty would have ranked you on top for Gates funding, making it highly unlikely that you wouldn't get an offer from them as well.

It is a bit weird for me too, I had previously applied to the Gates Cambridge and I don’t remember having received a rejection email... older threads confirm that people did receive these emails in the past. Maybe it depends on if an application has been ranked as ‘eligible’ by the Department but didn’t make it to shortlisting?

From older threads, there were people that already were offer holders but still didn’t make it to the next round, it is really hard to set a pattern.

I have seen a few LLM applicants either getting offers or being processed to GAO on here, gradcafe and student room, so it definitely looks like they are releasing the first batch of offers. We shouldn't assume people are trolls just because the reality makes us anxious. 

I know no news is not always bad news, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up (especially because I personally know my application wasn't very strong this year). I'll probably start preparing for next year's application now haha.


Hope it goes your way this year! Would you mind sharing the links for the gradcafe and student room threads? Thanks :)

I doubt it's supposed to be a pattern. Most offer holders would not make it to the next round of Gates. Gates shortlists in early Feb and informs the selected nominees. By then, people might have made it to GAO or through GAO to an offer, or they may still be under review. That would depend on how fast the department/GAO is with the applications.

Exactly one week ago.


I smell... a troll 


You are indeed... a troll hunter.

Just because you and many others in the last two years received relatively late results does not necessarily indicate I mislead people here. If you care to check 2018/2019 cycle, there are even earlier results. 

When I shared the news about the status change from under review to awaiting approval by GAO, some others were also skeptical, and I can understand that, but noone expressed that in a way like you do. Still, just to put an end to all the doubts I shared the screenshot of my application tracker then. 

You have every right to be skeptical, however you should not classify people as "trolls" without explaining your reasons and expressing yourself in a respectful manner. Otherwise, how can you differantiate yourself from the so called "trolls"?

If you promise to apologize here afterwards, I can clear all your doubts by sharing whatever documents you want to see (and of course I will conceal the parts which contain personal information). I just want to help fellow applicants by sharing updates to ease the pain of waiting since I still have that pain maybe not for Cambridge but for other programs like LSE.

In addition, I noticed this is your first post after a while. There were many questions under many topics in the website where you can help other people as a previous applicant and offer holder but no, you have not posted to help anyone. There are people here who try to help others with the experience and knowledge they have and I am personally grateful for their help. Thus, your approach makes me wonder your reasons to post now. I believe it is not for helping others by identifying a "troll".

Enough of ad hominem, best of luck guys! I hope you receive good news soon.


Point is just that it seems unlikely that one person would move through GAO and email offer before any significant reports here of others moving to GAO.  

No need for the other attacks thanks.

Clearly nobody seems to be listening to the guy who is applying for the third time. Or simply people just cannot be bothered to look through this thread the threads of previous years.

You will see (if you bother to look at previous threads) that there have always been a few users who receive their offer before others.

The reason for this (as I have previously stated in this thread).

Stronger applicants receive their offers earlier they are the 'cream of the crop' , Cambridge University then filter through the applications to form their ideal cohort. 

This cohort is based not only on strength of applications but diversity quotas, backgrounds and what benefits students bring to the rest of the cohort.

If your MCL application has gone to GOA, it is likely that your LLM application will go to GOA too.

In the past there have been students still under review who don't go to GOA but receive their offers via email later in the month. 

If your application goes to GOA then it is highly likely that you have been granted admission into Cambridge University.

^ To the person who commented in this thread stating something like 'I did see a case where one student went to GOA and got rejected but couldn't remember where I saw it'.

I didn't see that... and since the person couldn't bother to take the time to remember or look through previous threads before making such a comment I would dismiss it.


But yes to put this comment to bed. It isn't unheard of for some students to hear the outcome of their applications before others, in fact based on previous threads it is quite common.

Hi everyone,

It’s my first time applying - my application is currently under review by the department. Exiting times ahead - best of luck to you all. I was wondering, do those with first class degrees almost always get in?

A first class is their minimum requirement. Around 30 % of the applicants receive an offer every year, but there's probably a decent bunch of people applying without meeting the minimum. Might be as much as a 40-45 % chance or so if you do?

Naz Khan, first of all, there are 841 threads regarding the Cambridge LLM & MCL and i've given a good look to all of them in the last few months for the satisfaction of my own curiosity. As I said, I did see a case where this happened over the past few months but I wasn't as obsessed in order to provide "proof". I have a life and other things to do as well rather than looking through 841 threads to find the *one*. This place is just a forum where we all get to share our experience and journey regarding a similar matter, and it's very sad to see someone discrediting someone just because something, that may very well be true and happen, might make them nervous. Don't go around discrediting people without knowing them. I'm not a troll, I'm an aspiring LLM student (for the first time as well), just like yourself and the fact that you've applied 3 times doesn't make you a guru. So don't act like one and discredit anyone who says something that makes you uncomftarble. 

 I wish you the best of luck

Or simply people just cannot be bothered to look through this thread the threads of previous years.<br><br>You will see (if you bother to look at previous threads) that there have always been a few users who receive their offer before others.<br><br>The reason for this (as I have previously stated in this thread).<br><br>Stronger applicants receive their offers earlier they are the 'cream of the crop' , Cambridge University then filter through the applications to form their ideal cohort.&nbsp;<br><br>This cohort is based not only on strength of applications but diversity quotas, backgrounds and what benefits students bring to the rest of the cohort.<br><br>If your MCL application has gone to GOA, it is likely that your LLM application will go to GOA too.<br><br>In the past there have been students still under review who don't go to GOA but receive their offers via email later in the month.&nbsp;<br><br>If your application goes to GOA then it is highly likely that you have been granted admission into Cambridge University.<br><br>^ To the person who commented in this thread stating something like 'I did see a case where one student went to GOA and got rejected but couldn't remember where I saw it'.<br><br>I didn't see that... and since the person couldn't bother to take the time to remember or look through previous threads before making such a comment I would dismiss it.<br><br><br>But yes to put this comment to bed. It isn't unheard of for some students to hear the outcome of their applications before others, in fact based on previous threads it is quite common.&nbsp;<br><br>Naz Khan, first of all, there are 841 threads regarding the Cambridge LLM &amp; MCL and i've given a good look to all of them in the last few months for the satisfaction of my own curiosity. As I said, I did see a case where this happened over the past few months but I wasn't as obsessed in order to provide "proof". I have a life and other things to do as well rather than looking through 841 threads to find the *one*. This place is just a forum where we all get to share our experience and journey regarding a similar matter, and it's very sad to see someone discrediting someone just because something, that may very well be true and happen, might make them nervous. Don't go around discrediting people without knowing them. I'm not a troll, I'm an aspiring LLM student (for the first time as well), just like yourself and the fact that you've applied 3 times doesn't make you a guru. So don't act like one and discredit anyone who says something that makes you uncomftarble.&nbsp;<br><br>&nbsp;I wish you the best of luck[/quote]
