Can anyone with conditional offers kindly let me know what the condition was based up on?


Financial undertaking, college membership, and a minimum final grade for the degree I'm currently studying for!

Is this for an undergraduate degree the minimum grade or postgrad?

What do you mean by 'college membership' as a condition? According to the Cambridge graduate admissions website, 'In every case, if you have been made a formal offer of admission by the University, you will be accepted by a College.'

The minimum grade is for undergraduate studies, and college membership is a condition that does not require any work on my part. It just means that I won't be officially accepted until a college has accepted me, which is, as you rightly point out, always going to be the case! So no worries about that! :)

I have e-mailed Ms Wade yesterday at 3.28 and i still have not received any reply. However, honestly i think that every minute is worth the wait. There are high stakes in the wait only in respect of winning- being accepted. Even if I get rejected, there is nothing to lose - except the fee i paid for the application, for which, honestly i do not care as much.

For me, to withdraw application just because i have not received any outcome yet, is far from any common sense and understanding. But still, we are all different and maybe someone actually thought it is a good idea to do so.

Whatever is the case, we will get the outcome at some point, we should have hope, and if we get in, the feeling will be much better than all of the stress we felt through the process.
But if do not- it is not end of the world, most people will have planB or back-up options, even if they do not, there is absolutely nothing to lose.

I, however, agree that delaying the process is not highly professional, but as i said, it is worth the wait since Cambridge is one of the best universities in the world, and it is not their loss if you withdraw the application, since it will barely affect them. People will still always apply to Cambridge, and compete with others to get it

I know this is nerve-wrecking but i think we made a huge fuss about this, since we should just try to focus on our work at current studies/jobs, and let the time make it right.

Chillax and wait

Email them yourself and stop trying to get us to do your bidding.


He is just stopping by on the LLM thread to offer support to you guys, he did the LLM at Cambridge hence why he knows who to email and is awaiting a PhD decision. It doesn't cost anything to give people the benefit of the doubt.



It's pointless. Top tier universities can play by their own rules. Whining to them about the process won't achieve anything.


Aren't you such a lovely person? I suggested it because I know Cambridge values feedback especially the people whose contacts I provided. I have been there, you have not! So you cannot exactly have an opinion on what they do and do not.

Just to be clear, I did my LLM already so I have nothing to gain or lose and have no bidding to make.

To the rest, please see the email addresses above and use them to vent. It is your right to vent about how disorganized the process has been.

[quote][quote][quote][quote]Dear All,

I think it is important that Cambridge hears about how badly they have handled their application process this year. I believe that as much as I loved this university, we must accept that the process this year has been very disappointing, largely confusing and clearly messy.

To that end, feel free to drop an email to the following people with feedback.

1. Professor Harris, the LLM Course Director. He is a very lovely gentleman who will try to make things work.

No way? Did you go to Cambridge??!

You're so modest that you mentioned that for the first time now.

Ah, okay. Seems a bit odd then that they consider that a 'condition' on the offer when it's a guaranteed outcome. Thanks for the clarification!

I emailed Ms. Wade cc'ing all the dignitaries above to provide a general feedback (based on LegalLife's advice) on the overall LLM application processing process to which Miss Wade replied as follows:
"As you might be aware, formal offer notifications are sent to successful applicants by the Graduate Admissions Office, rather than by the Faculty of Law, because it is the GAO who sets offers for the LLM, following recommendation by the Faculty. The Faculty and the GAO are working to process all decisions as quickly as possible, following our consideration of all LLM applications by 15 March. However, we appreciate that this can take time given the two stage process, and that applicants are understandably keen to know the outcome of their applications as soon as possible. We will therefore consult the Graduate Admissions Office to see whether it would be possible for the Faculty to send informal offer notifications to successful applicants prior to the formal offer from the GAO."
I hope we will hear from them soon.

While I can't speak for everyone, thanks for doing what I was considering doing but wasn't ready to handle the heat. The wait is getting to me, my parents think I am didn't get the admission, my mentor looks at me as if waiting for an answer but is too polite to enquire until I tell him. Am getting too antsy, non productive and too much turmoil.
