I was also wondering if anyone had decided on the colleges that they'll be including in their applications.


I have been thinking about this as well! Was thinking of Darwin and Wolfson..what about you?

I was thinking Darwin as well. I'd really like trinity as well but I hear it's really hard to get into.

Anybody have any tips for "A(12) Summary details of research proposal or reason for applying for this course"? I take it we don't have to put our research degree proposal, but generally why we want to study the course particularly at Cambridge?

Thanks

Hey all,

No test date for IELTS is available in my country before November 13, 2014, by which time, the deadline for application would have already passed.

I had appeared for IELTS in 2009, but that score would be invalid now. I have had my whole education with English as first language and have three years of experience in a law firm.

Is there a way I could successfully submit my LLM application by November 1 without the English language certificate requirement, as there is no way I can take the test in my country before that time.
Please someone suggest something.

I got a waiver for the English requirement because i speak English and have had all my education in English. You will upload the certificate on your self service account stating so and they will take it and scrutinise it. Should you be admitted, you will be required to be assessed by the English Language Center just like i did.

Manchie, I got into Cambridge this year and I am from India too. I had submitted my application without the english test and it was successful. I was required to submit an IELTS score by July 2014. So don't worry and go ahead with your application

Hello CambridgeLLM and others,

I am from India too, and I am late in taking the IELTS. I am taking the test on 8th of November and I am supposed to furnish the supporting documents including the language test within 2 weeks from 1st of November. By the time the scores are out, the deadline will be over.

I mailed the graduate studies regarding this and made a humble plea, and this is what they replied.

"Due to the large volume of students that apply to the LLM course we have a strict deadline. Your Language test is required within that time".

I am already panicking and just wondering how do I convince them?
Please, somebody help me here!

Don't email again unless it's to politely mention that you will reapply next year. You will prejudice any future applications if you make a pest of yourself by insisting. You have received an answer: the deadline is strict. You missed it. Better luck next year.

The Graduate Studies Office asked me to get in touch with the Dept of Law and explain the situation. I have e-mailed the DOL, and awaiting their reply.

However, my question is, how did CambridgeLLM got to fulfill the requirement only in July, when I too have similar English language proficiency? As in, I speak English, did my schooling in English and also my entire Law course (5 years) was taught in English.

How am I different than a fellow Indian candidate?

Hi Samira,

I don't know if the rules for language test have changed this year. Last year, the rule was that our application would be considered without the english test itself and if we were admitted (as was the case with me and at least 5 fellow Indian applicants I know of), w would be given a conditional admission and one of the conditions to fulfil was a language condition i.e. a 7 overall in IELTS. You could still cross check with the GAO whether such rule exists or not.

Thank you for the prompt response. I am still waiting for their reply, hoping that they'd be convinced with my proposition.

BTW, did you succeed in getting any scholarship? Also, do you believe that it's worthy enough to 'invest' so much on these Ivy Leagues? I understand the 'learning curve' part, but to be practical, it's no less than a wager!

econ_lawyer, do you have any idea where can I find the recorded version of this webinar?

Also, could anyone please clarify whether 1st November, 2014 is the deadline for sending the Application Form from or do ALL the supporting documents also need to be submitted by 1st November (making the application deadline somewhere around 15th October effectively)? PLEASE clarify at the earliest?

Thanks!

I received this email form cambridge.


Please accept this as advice that UNLESS YOUR APPLICATION IS SUBMITTED WITHIN THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS, we will assume that you no longer wish to proceed and that we can delete your application. Updating the application now will not allow an extension to this 7 days.

How can I submit in 7 days, before the deadline?

Well, the same email was sent to me and i ignored it only to wake up one day when Cambridge had deleted all the information in my application. Thankfully, i had already printed a copy of the information so i just re-typed it!

Hi, could someone please tell me if we are required to fill in A(12) in the application form? It basically talks about research proposal but also asks for reasons for study? So an LLM candidate also needs to fill it right stating their purpose of study?

Thats what I am also thinking manchie,

Also just out of curiousness, by when are you planning on dispatching your application? I was wondering if there would be any repercussions if I submit it like till 27-28th October?

They don't accept applications on rolling basis right?

Any idea anyone else?
