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?
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
