yes but so many rejections are already released so what is the hold up for the rest of us?? thats why i was enquiring as to whether we can only get positive results now. if we were to get rejected, shouldnt we already have last week??


Do we have any insight into the number of rejections that may have been sent out. I remember some of the users reporting here, but that was barely 10 or so. 

I do hope you are right in saying that we can be optimistic to still be "under review" if the rejections have mostly been rolled out.

Guys, quite frankly, we should not expect much from Cambridge in the coming days. In the best case scenario, those who will be admitted will eventually be notified before April begins, so I assume that most of the movements will be done during the last two weeks of March, as this week looks completely idle. 

Unfortunately we have applied in the most unusual year. It has been a complete caos in all of their programs, including the PhD, the MCL and of course the LLM.  1f641

However, it strikes me ass odd because some PAO has already been sent out... It breaks the pattern of most other years. It seems reasonable that the applications are sent in batches from the Degree Committee and not one by one, then stop for several days.1f914

I know that waiting is frustrating, but isn’t it a bit much to bash them this much for not much else (I’m not sure what other chaos is referred to with the PhD and MCL) than being somewhat later in updating to PAO status than previous years? The uni has had periods of industrial action and this is also the first year since covid with fairly decent prospects of normal in-person teaching and other activities for the whole academic year, making it reasonable to assume a higher application base than normal. They might therefore also have seen the need to readjust how many offers they can give out without the risk of getting completely oversubscribed. I’m sure more applicants than usual would also be harder to properly evaluate now that more applicants would have more or less their entire undergrad affected by covid. I don’t find it particularly unreasonable if they decided that they needed more time for their final decisions, as they’re not exactly bound by any ‘precedents’ from past decisions. PAO status is in any case manually changed and could be affected by something as simple as someone being sick at the moment. Several applicants might well be at PAO already without an update on their portal yet. Surely what matters is rather the offer in the end?

Also consider that some applicants might be stuck in “review” for a fairly long time because of the hidden waiting list. I can agree that they could get much better with informing about the existence of this list when that time comes, though… I’m sure it would be helpful to many applicants if they hired one more person in the administration to met the realities of the increased workload over there.

I have to say I am beginning to lose hope. I also checked and I'm "under review".

I think Cambridge have been inundated with applications by loads of people waiting for covid restrictions to abate, so we have to compete with 2 or 3 years of stellar students who had been holding back their applications. Plus, their strike didn't help.

By the time they get to my application, they've probably read 500 excellent applications and have given out their offers. I think it becomes a numbers game. 2639

You have certainly made very valid points however the website clearly states that all decisions have been made by 1st March 2022. If there was a delay, they would have updated the website, like they did for MCL. At this point, decisions on all applications have been made, the hold up is just in updating our portals.

I'm afraid I agree with those who think that the whole process is lagging behind this year and that not all decisions have already been made. Just my two cents tho

I've looked at the last couple of years threads. When I use days here I'm going off the Monday where rejections started to roll out, in previous years that 2-3 weeks earlier than here. This does not include the handful of offers that were made before this week.

So I think the following conclusions can be drawn from this

a) last Tuesday was 1 March and nobody has been given a rejection (at least of this forum) since last Wednesday

b) The amount of rejections reported here is lower than in previous years (11 vs 16/17)

There is a part of me that hopes that the law school have complied with their internal deadline of 1 March and there is just a massive backlog in updating people's status in going to PAO.

In previous years, there a few early movements towards PAO before the "main week" where the bulk of the rejections then PAO updates came through, this didn't happen this year. I'm kind of hoping that the 4 movements to PAO were the few early offers that happened in previous years (that were just updated on a delay compared to usual) and nobody has been updated to PAO yet from the "main week".

This would be consistent with the updates on the Student Room which seem to suggest that the PAO have been very slow this year with most other postgrad disciplines too. Though the fact that the number of rejections are a little lower than usual makes me doubt this a bit (though maybe it's just the relatively small sample size of the forum). When I started looking at this towards the end of last week, I was expecting there to be one final batch of rejections either on Friday, or certainly by Monday but that didn't happen, and we're all still in limbo.

thank u for this. this may sound too stupid but according to you when do you think more rejections or paos will come through?? Or do u think that mass rejection week is over???

I've looked at the last couple of years threads. When I use days here I'm going off the Monday where rejections started to roll out, in previous years that 2-3 weeks earlier than here. This does not include the handful of offers that were made before this week.

So I think the following conclusions can be drawn from this

a) last Tuesday was 1 March and nobody has been given a rejection (at least of this forum) since last Wednesday

b) The amount of rejections reported here is lower than in previous years (11 vs 16/17)

There is a part of me that hopes that the law school have complied with their internal deadline of 1 March and there is just a massive backlog in updating people's status in going to PAO.

In previous years, there a few early movements towards PAO before the "main week" where the bulk of the rejections then PAO updates came through, this didn't happen this year. I'm kind of hoping that the 4 movements to PAO were the few early offers that happened in previous years (that were just updated on a delay compared to usual) and nobody has been updated to PAO yet from the "main week".

This would be consistent with the updates on the Student Room which seem to suggest that the PAO have been very slow this year with most other postgrad disciplines too. Though the fact that the number of rejections are a little lower than usual makes me doubt this a bit (though maybe it's just the relatively small sample size of the forum).

This is unprecedented really. I'm in Australia and keep waking up expecting to see something here but there's been nothing

Same here. At this point I'm not criticising the circumstances but only hoping that all of us get a response soon. I'm concerned about the affect on our chances of accepting admission at other schools if this gets more delayed.
