Oxford 2021-2022 BCL/MSCs/MJUR/MPHIL/MLF Applicants


LLM2021/22

MJUR applicant here
My button is still there, don't know what to expect.
I agree that when the button is gone, a decision has been made and someone manually ticked your application. In the TSR thread, I've seen people who got both acceptances and rejections after the button was gone.
But, in this case that some applicants still have it and some don't, I don't know what to see into this...


I think this shows that it is quite apparent the button has no correlation to an offer or rejection.

In other words, there is no point stressing over it because it does not determine the outcome of the application. At most, it means ppl will receive news of their application sooner.

Hello!

In the last 4-5 years, they have issued offers on Wednesday almost always. But given that it's already 14 o'clock, I wonder if they will finally be able to issue offers today. How long is the office time in UK?

Oh yes. They almost always release offers on a Wednesday for previous years. It’s usually before 12n also. But given that now everyone is WFH I’m not sure...

It would be interesting to look into the origins of the "button theory", makes waiting easier

It was about time Oxford got its own theory on admissions and rejections. 
While Cambridge has "awaiting approval of PAO; ... GAO" and LSE has the "transcript drop", Oxford now has the "button disappearance", even though we don't know what it means. We can/have to record that as today's result. 

Waiting is driving me crazy.

Exactly wasted the day waiting... the Harvard system seems to have locked people out. Maybe Harvard and Oxford might release at the same time

Just adding my findings to the "Great Oxford Disappearing Button Theory of 2021"

I can confirm I still have the button to upload supporting documents even though I'm now on the waiting list for the MLF. (To kill time someone needs to make a spreadsheet/graph to see if there's any sort of positive correlation between disappearing buttons and offers. 1f604)

Haha but on a more serious note, whatever the outcome of your applications, everyone should be proud of their achievements. To even meet the entry requirements of the Oxford PG courses is a testimony towards your talents and hardwork in the legal field!

Hello, long-time lurker here - I think the button theory would make perfect sense then, as in your case there has not been a final decision yet, but only the decision to put you on the waitlist. So I agree with what's been said before, the disappearance of the button probably means that a decision has been taken, but it is no indicator neither of a rejection nor of an offer. (Mine is still there.)

Mjur applicant here. I think that my button has disappeared but I am not really sure. It might be just me not finding it. Where is it  supposed to be?

Since we all are obviously anxious and the increasing number of posts today indicates that most of us feel, that sharing helps them to handle the anxiety, I'd like to add my thoughts on the button theory 1f603

I believe, we have to distinguish between two groups of applicants: Those candidates, who could get an unconditional offer and those who only could get a conditional offer.

My understanding is that one is only eligible to a conditional offer, if the person has to prove the fulfilling of some criteria. The most common should be the proof of graduation with a first class degree (for those applicants, who were still in their undergrad when the deadline passed) or the uploading of a specific language test result. 

Applicants who could get an unconditional offer (if they got an offer) are those, who don't need to upload further documents as their application was already fully supported by the documentation when the deadline passed.

My assumptions are the following:
1. If one is a candidate who could get an unconditional offer, the disappearance of the button only indicates that a decision has been made but doesn't imply its nature. 

2. If one is a candidate who only could get a conditional offer, the disappearance could mean, that the candidate will be rejected while the ongoing appearance of the button can mean both, that the candidate will admitted or waitlisted. 

Question: If you are still able to upload documents, what category of documents does it show, when you click on the arrow next to upload? 

3. We don't know what it means, if it means something!! The waiting is driving all of us (including myself) crazy and I now really feel like this Pepe Silvia guy. Please don't feel stressed, if you fall into category 2 and don't see the button anymore, I don't believe that there's a meaning at all. 

Hang in there, results will be released soon (hopefully).
Just the best to all of you.

do oxford even make unconditional offers? my cambridge offer is conditional on my uploading my degree certificate, even though I graduated last year. My gf is currently doing the BCL and I'm pretty sure that she had to get the law school to send her degree certificate in order to accept her offer, in which case the offer was conditional in the same way that cambridge's is?

Mine is still there but it gives me the option to upload a transcript and my English test results. However, I applied after I graduated from my LLB from a UK university last year. In other words, I have my university transcript when I applied and I was also exempted from showing any proof of English proficiency. Neat theory but again we are just speculating haha
