Cambridge LL.M. Applicants 2024-2025

Hi guys, longtime lurker here!! My status just got updated to 'Decision Pending' at around 15:00 GMT today! Not sure what this means, or whether its conclusive, but I'm guessing things are moving!!




Hi, could you tell us the date on which you submitted the application?


I applied a day before the deadline (December 4th) and my surname begins with an M! Hopefully that helps! 


Thanks for sharing! Anyone suspecting they consider applications in alphabetical order?

 (tbh i start to believe there is no system at all… just hoping that statuses will continue to change next week). Best of luck everyone!

Applications are not considered in alphabeical order according to last years threads. There was similar discussion but in the end no direct interrelation was proven

Hi guys, the status of my MCL application has changed to 'Decision Pending'. My LLM application is still under review.

For your information, I have a surname starting with the letter “W”.

Worst case scenario, is there any chance of receiving an offer without our status changing? Has anyone received an offer before despite being under review all the time?

Seems unlikely to me. But seeing this thread, there have only been 4 or 5 DPs, compared to around 15 last year by this time. This is very slow by Cambridge.

Well I cannot tell for sure, but as far as I have read previous years' threads I am unaware of such instances

Also if I counted correctly, there were only 4 DPs reported so far (for LLM, I did not count MCL)

Somebody here wrote that last year's submission deadline was around December 1. If it is correct, then it may be the reason

My MCL changed to decision pending the day before yesterday, and the LLM is still under review.

I applied in mid-October, and my surname begins with G.

From my count, 4-5 decisions are pending for the LLM but 7-8 for the MCL.

Hi everyone, my status changed to "Decision Pending - your application is currently under review". Is this the same as what others got? If I am not mistaken, it seems that other applicants only have "Decision Pending" on the portal.

My status changed a couple hours ago today. For the past week or two I have been frantically checking the application portal for updates and it wasn't the healthiest thing. Your update will come when it comes, and it is not good to compare with others. I know this is easier said than done, but I wish I had done that.

do we know if there is anyone who has already received a rejection? Or do they all go out at the same time? Slowly going insane here

Same here, past forums indicate theres usually a cut off date where statuses are changed to PAO (usually last day of Feb) then rejections are updated all at once

No one knows 100% but we assume it’s the new PAO ~ very good sign
