Can someone who is in the U.K. call them and find out if at all they are planning to release decisions today? I don't think there will be any movement over the weekend anyway.

I could call them up but I think no good will come of it and that it's in any case pointless. Firstly, I do not want to appear desperate. Secondly, we've been given false information relating to the decisions before. There is therefore no reason to think that whatever they tell us will actually be right. Lastly, calling them (repeatedly) is a waste of their time. That time is better spent making and communicating the decisions, I think.

Hannah is an expert caller. Maybe she'll want to try regardless :-)

I tried calling them today but no response , and the LLM administrator seems to not be answering anyone's calls since 15th of March.

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.


Exactly , it's just horrible being kept waiting this long only to be find out you have been rejected. Guess we will just have to wait and see what happens.

Ya you were right, I called them up in any case and after giving them my applicant id and telling her the status being "under consideration", she told me that the committee is still making decisions. So it was a futile attempt.

I don't understand how they can still be making decisions when they have had 4 months...

I know.

I haven't been able to concentrate as normal upon my work over the last month because of my apprehension over this application.

But I thought it was all going to be done and dusted by March 15. How wrong I was.

Hopefully we get more news before 4.30pm, as that appears to be the time the admissions office quits for the day.

They should try doing their job competently, staying in late and making all the outstanding decisions.

I feel or fear perhaps we will have another long weekend, what a wait and again I reiterate how distressing it will be, to have waited and worried for a wave goodbye :(

Hi guys,

just crashing in to tell you that by now it's all over. All spots have been filled. Whoever has not gotten an offer by now will be rejected.

Have a nice weekend.

Hi :)

Just wondering if anyone could tell me what the percentage requirements are for Cambridge LLM?
I know it's a 1st but is it a specific percentage over 70% or how does it work?

thanks

I talked to Ms Wade during the open day event about that. She said it depends on your uni's criteria. So if you get a First according to their criteria, you are covered.

Edit: she also said it is highly unlikely to get an offer subject to a specific percentage point average from the marks (e. g. 70, 71). A vast majority of people are simply required to get a First overall.

Thanks so much for your reply username_is_used!!

So if a first is a 70%, would I have a chance with that grade? ( I haven't graduated yet so I'm just predicting :/)
Just to clarify from your last point, if I have a couple of 69/67 grades that would not make me automatically rejected if I get a first overall?

You can have any grades whatsoever (including 2.1s) as long as you get a first overall from your uni.

You're hanging on to a dream, guys. All offers for the 2017/2018 LLM have now been made. We're just slow in tidying up the pool of rejections.
