Thanks everyone that called, and thanks for the info, Pjoedi! I hope this wait will be over soon...


Do you reckon we could still hear back from them today? It is getting a bit late (4:15 pm now in the UK)?


I really don't know, I'm sorry. I'm checking Camsis every minute haha :)

Same here hahahaha

Although myself not overly optimistic, we have seen far fewer 'successful' posts than in previous years, and far more rejections. So I'm sure we haven't heard the last of the Board of Grad Studies just yet...

I just don't understand why they would not just tell us now. Surely alot of the spaces have been filled up by now

Just talked with someone from the law departament, don't expect any news today. The lady going through the applications has left at 4:30 UK time.

Pardon my French, but it really sucks. Just because there are a great many applicants to your school doesnt exempt you from the basic courtesy of at least timely informing them who, after all, aspire to join your hallowed institution, and are understandably anxious because their future careers are at stake. We are talking about life decisions here which are invariably urgent given the deadlines. Similar to Yale, they don't bother telling you by email or whatnot if you're rejected: suffer the agony waiting for it via mail. I hope the schools can empathize more. Just a thought.

Not to mention the application fees we paid as our part in the transaction, where we can have a reasonable expectation that our applications will,in turn, be processed efficiently and on time as promised.

Let's just hope that they don't see "rejects" as just another statistic that can inflate their rejection (read: competitiveness) rates. These are people, flesh and blood, with dreams.

If you will ask me, the best LLM application process "award" goes to Chicago. You can see that Associate Dean Badger really takes the effort to keep you posted and walk you through the application experience. That is definitely commendable. Jump to my bottom two, the worst goes to Yale, and next is, guess what, Cambridge (which happen to be the two most selective, in the US and the UK respectively).

Again, just to clarify, I do not mean to smear any school's reputation, but am only motivated to make LLM processes more humane and responsible towards applicants, regardless of their chances of admissibility.

If I do get in and I do matriculate to Cambridge, at least I now know that when Cambridge sets a deadline for an assignment, it means I have at least 48 hours beyond that deadline to complete it.

Do not try it. Hehehe. They will not mark your essay if it is one minute late. Thankfully, the LLM essays are optional.

Cambridge does date to the medieval period. Have we considered that when they said March 15, they might still use the Julian calendar?

The amount of energy we have all spent has been incredible; posting on threads, checking gradcafe, checking camsis, and just staring at the walls aimlessly! I seriously hope they'd be kind enough to send out rejections earlier and not keep people they have no intention of admitting hanging onto the hope of Cambridge when they could be planning the next step in their lives. Whether I get in or not, I intend to complain and/or offer constructive advice about their admissions process.
