I really can't tell whether still being UCDC makes us more or less likely to be BOGS'ed. Any theories?

Neither. Our chances decrease with every move to BoGS and correspondingly increase with every rejection :-)

Question...

Those of you who are also in DC land...are you (like me) hoping to get a "conditional offer"?

Nope, I graduated last year, so hoping for an unconditional offer!

Do you know if it's the same deadline for handing out decisions for the LLM and the MCL (15 March) or if it's 15 April for the MCL? - I've been rejected for the LLM but still DC for the MCL.

I sure hope they will get it over with this week. The BCL results will also be released and it would be great if we could put all of this behind us.

Ah... Takes me back...
I was in the same position as most of you are now a while ago - I got BOGS'd on 15th March Last year and called up Ms. Wade, who confirmed it was just a formality and is a firm offer.

Admittedly, there were people being accepted way after the 15th March deadline though.

It also took more than a month to finally get a status change to official offer and get allocated to a college though. The nervous waiting was one of the most antagonising things i've had to sit through so can seriously sympathise!

- For all of you who have heard back and its not so positive, commiserations
- For all of you who have heard back and its positive news, congratulations
- For all of you who are unsure, sit tight! :D
Cambridge is an amazing place for the masters but there are also many other good schools out there!

All the best :)

My status just changed to "Application unsuccessful". I was too hopeful and didn't even bother applying to other Uni. :( Dreams crashed. Is it too late to apply to LSE? I believe it is on a rolling basis. How long do they usually take to reply?

LSE already closed its application for LLM as far as I know. They sent an email which read as follows:
"Thank you for starting an online application with LSE.

Unfortunately we must inform you that one of the programme choices you have selected (M3U1 LLM ) is now closed to new applicants. This means that you cannot now be considered for this programme. LSE has a rolling admissions system which means that programmes close when all places are filled.

Please check our available programmes page (http://www.lse.ac.uk/study/graduate/availableProgrammes.aspx) to see which programmes are still accepting applications.

You should then amend the “Programmes” tab of your online application accordingly.

Please do not submit an application for a closed programme, as that programme choice will not be considered."

However, I advise you to confirm the same from the admissions committee at the LSE.

All Cambridge offers are actually conditional. You have to be allocated a college as well as upload a financial undertaking form so your offer will be conditional.

Thanks a ton for your prompt reply. Apparently, LLM program is closed there as well. But will confirm with the admissions committee. Such a sad day for over-confident-stupid-me.

Very sorry to hear this Spider!

My advice would be to focus upon your career and work experience, if pursuing a different LLM is not possible.
