I started out writing a long post to argue what I think the move to DC means. But there's really no point. Let's just wait and see :-)


Yes, we can just wait, hoping for the best :)

I'm sure the Cambridge faculty are dedicated, but not meeting at 2 a.m. dedicated :P

I would really like to, but I think there is hardly going to be any change today. It is more likely that there will be changes after the next meeting, namely January 26.

I want to be wrong though :)

Its a bit early to expect changes to status.

According to previous years and tradition, you will start to see BOGS and offers in February.

Hang in there. It will soon be over.

Same.

Based on the forums last year it might be mid-March before that changes for some of us. They were also a little bit late last year so it may well be that our offers/rejections will not get in time (before March 15).

The healthy thing would be to forget about the application for two months. Any recipes on how to do that are welcomed :-)

I met someone today who's LLM application went to BOGS stage this week. Probably a good time to check your camsis.

Oh wow really? Mine is still under consideration by Degree Committee unfortunately ...

Good luck everyone! Hopefully the wait will be over very soon (and that we all end up with excellent news) :)

Might they be an MCL applicant? In previous years, the Master of Corporate Law students received offers before LLMs.

I could bet that is false. I asked someone I know at Faculty and she told them they are still going through applications and it is not possible that an LLM student is at BOGS. Beware of people who tell you things to freak you out.

Legallife, I appreciate your contribution to this forum, but that is quite rude. As I heard this information from someone that I know is applying, I clearly cannot authenticate whether it is true. I took them at their word.

At the same time, you're a regular poster on the student room forum as well as this forum. But you've said that you've been assured admission to your top choice phd and you seem to be saying that you have a mole within the faculty committee. I don't understand why someone with so much insider knowledge would be such a prolific poster.

I've been reading these boards for a while but never spoken. Hi everyone. Sorry to have been reading the banter without making any meaningful contribution of my own. But truth be told, I'm not sure that I have much meaningful to share. But maybe this will be. We'll see.

We may all one day be classmates. As such, I think we should all treat each other with respect, no matter how distant the digital world may make us feel from one another. And as applicants to an institution as fine as the one we're discussing, I think we should take it upon ourselves to make sure that we engage one another with kindness and objectivity (if not empathy).

The above response seems like a bit of an overreaction and ad hominem attack to someone simply voicing their doubts about the veracity of someone going into BOGS status. There was no attack on you, hereigoagain2-just a simple statement that whatever you were told might not be true. We should all be able to take someone at their word, but unfortunately, the word may not always be good. I understand your offense, I do, but Legallife may (or may not) have made a good point. Either way, let's not directly attack one another, even if we voice our doubts about our sources of information.

If we're all accepted, we'll have to keep each other company for the next year. So let's keep it above board. It's helpful to know that someone has said they're in BOGS status, but also helpful (and, admittedly, calming to the rest of us) to know that someone might be puffing.

The spirit of these boards I hope would be to share whatever information we know, whether from a fellow applicant or a faculty contact. As lawyers, I assume we all are of the personality type that likes to know as much information as possible.

As for me, still under DC. If that person made it into BOGS, that's awesome. If they didn't and they lied for sport, they've got some issues to work on. Truth is we don't know.

So good luck everyone. Let's keep each other posted on whatever facts we might hear, and on the rumors too - sometimes rumors turn out to be true. But let's be kind to one another in doing so.

Best of luck.
