Cambridge LLM 2019 - 2020 Applicants




Not in my case and, in my experience, the application status would change even after one receives the offer by email. However, it would seem that in cases of rejection, the status will change immediately.


You mean it wouldn’t change? Bit confused here, so are we saying that if the status doesn’t change to committee review within the next week or so we can expect bad news? Or that this is no indication


I am re-applying for 2019/2020. For 2018/2019, the first news that I was made an offer came by email in February, the status didn't change until around March. My opinion is that, unless the status changes to 'rejected', nothing is really certain until we receive an email.

[quote][quote][quote][quote]While we can hope for movement in our application trackers, the admissions office did say we should wait until March 1. In any case, I got an offer of admission last year and I remember that my application tracker changed from under review/consideration by 'department' to under review/consideration by 'degree committee' before I got my admission offer. I wasn't able to ask for deferral so I applied again. I think we can expect the same decision process. Here's the relevant website, too: https://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/after-applying/selection-process[/quote]

So I suppose the question is, has anybody's status changed to under review by committee yet? [/quote]

Hi friends, do you have any idea about how we learn the rejections? Should we check the applicant status all the time or will we receive an e-mail? Thanks in advance.

I have a question for those who applied for the same program last year as well. Do you know any example of a person who had received an e-mail from the university's scholarship options before the announcement of the offers, however, eventually got rejected? I am wondering if receiving scholarship eligibility e-mail is a good sign or not.

It doesn't mean anything. They send it automatically to every eligible applicant so that in the event you are accepted, you didn't miss any funding opportunity because many deadlines are before March 1st.

I also received one of those emails so I wish my answer was different !

If you look earlier in the discussion apparently rejections will appear in the applicant status but we will receive an email if we are accepted. I am sure I am not the only one who keeps refreshing the applicant portal's page every 10 minutes !

I can confirm this. Last year I was also constantly checking my applicant status until I got the admission email. :)

On their website it says that the department takes a few months to decide, then the relevant degree committee takes about 10 days and then the graduate admissions office takes about another 10 days. What the email to you could mean is that it has gone to the graduate admissions office and within 10 days you should get an answer.

I say so because I have also applied and haven’t got any such email, neither have other people whom I know have applied.

It's not an email, it's on the Applicant Portal, on the upper part.

Oh sorry! Yes mine also says that. But my status is still under review by department and hasn’t even moved to review by degree committee.

What does yours say?

This message has been displayed on the applicant portal since the 6th of February if I am not mistaken. I guess that they refer to working days so we should hear something on the 18th or the 19th of February. Idk.. just guessing
