Would it be sound to try again next year if one wasn’t even waitlisted this time? What do you think?

I still think it is rather tactless of them to issue rejections several days after issuing offers. I applied six months ago.
Oh well.

I’d say it depends on whether you’re still an undergraduate and will have graduated by the time you reapply, as they seem to prefer candidates with degrees already in the bag.
I’m thinking of giving it another shot next year for this reason. On the other hand, I know someone who applied and had an absolutely flawless CV/academic record and is still (presumably) getting rejected on Monday. At this level of competition there’s always an element of luck :(

BCL applications are really unpredictable. Not sure what they are looking for

I am just being so impatient. This does not make any sense at all. I am not even sure if all the offers were sent in one go (since different offer-holders recorded different hours of receiving offers). Why would they wait for three more days just to release the rejections? This is agonising.

I know! It seems cruel to wait days just for a rejection.
I really don’t know what’s going on. I’m assuming they did all the acceptances in one go on Thursday - they didn’t release any more on Friday, which would imply there are no more to give out :(
But they haven’t done that in previous years, so who knows. I’d rather assume the worst than get my hopes up

Maybe this is because the rejections are sent out by the Graduate Admissions centrally? A friend of mine who applied for a totally unrelated programme received one so I kind of know how the rejection email looks like, and it was signed by the Director of Graduate Admissions.

You mean it's taking time because rejections are sent out by the Graduate Admissions centrally? It could be. I am hopelessly waiting to see how my rejection email looks like.

I just got a rejection for the MPhil at 2:00 am UK time on a Sunday! For those of you wondering, rejections are almost certainly computer generated - unless someone is working on 2:00 am I guess. Goodluck to everyone who is still waiting!!!

Wow, in the middle of the night on a Sunday. That’s something.

Thanks for being selfless enough to let us know, very much appreciated.

I haven’t heard anything yet (MJur).

Sorry to everyone who got rejections :(

I still haven’t heard anything. Does this mean anything? Or do they just roll out the rejections over a couple of days?
