Cambridge LLM 2015-16

To be honest I don´t think there´s much point looking at the statistics. Cambridge is a brilliant programme and obviously selective as they require a First to get in. Cambridge has always been a dream of mine, and if so happens that I will be accepted to Oxford as well, I will still choose Cambridge. For me, the decision is about so much more than just the statistics or the ranking of the programme :))

Just updating, my CAMSIS status just changed from "awaiting decision by BoG" to "conditional offer made"!!!!!!

My conditions:
- Completed Bachelor's Transcript
- Scanned Passport
- Visa Status
- Acceptance of Offer
- College Membership
- Financial Undertaking

I didn't get an academic condition, though I am still finishing my LLB. I'm an Australian student.

Good luck to you all! :) :)

Congratulations to you!!! I am happy for you.

Please when did your status change to "Awaiting decision by BoGS"?
Approximately how long did it take for your status to change to "Conditional Offer made"?

That's awesome, congratulations! I wonder how much longer the rest of the BoGSed applicants will have to wait before hearing from Cambrigde.

Congratulations! I really want mine to change now as well :) If I remember correctly, the Australian applicants were the first ones to get BOGSed so maybe they are going in the same order for the offers.

I´m wondering why they put college membership as a condition since, if I understand correctly, once you get an offer, you are guaranteed a membership at some college.

My status also changed to BOGS. However I do not know when the change occurred as I hadn't checked CAMSIS in a while. Like last year, im sure my conditions will be a scanned copy of passport, EAP Language requirement, certified copy of transcript and college membership.

Ah, so did you apply again for this year? If so, well done (again!)

Yes I did reapply. I couldn't take up the offer last year because of personal circumstances beyond my control.

Sorry to hear that - really well done on getting another offer again this year though, huge congratulations going your way!

Thanks a lot. Let's hope the offer comes through as well.

Well done Optimisticgirl! Can I ask, was it not possible to defer the offer? I was hoping that would be a possibility in case I don´t manage to sort the finances out, but apparently they won´t let you defer?

I was told clearly by Ms Suzanne Wade that Cambridge does not offer deferrals except in extremely unique circumstances and finances was an example she gave as not being one of those reasons. I was not differing because of finances though.

Additionally, deferrals are only possible if your course has two start dates in the same academic year. And since the LLM does not have such, then Suzanne Wade advised that it is extremely difficult to get one.

still no update for me :( If rejection, they should inform the applicants ASAP so they can concentrate on other places

Are they going by country? Which other countries no one has got an offer so far?
