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.
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
