You guys reckon more offers would be sent out to those with their buttons still up if we survive the night? Oxford is driving us crazy! By common practice, rejection should have rolled out last night..
Nope - as per the email sent to an applicant (on a previous page of this thread), all offers were released by Friday afternoon. Further, if they ran out of time or whatever, they seemed to have notified successful applicants that they would receive an offer (as opposed to actually sending the offer).
As for the button theory, its quite clear that in the context of BCL, no button = offer, button = no offer. This is what all of the evidence actually indicates. This is of course discounting random anecdotes from different courses, anecdotes which don't seem credible, second-hand hearsay etc. Personally, I have absolutely no idea how people reached the conclusion that no button = decision made. If you track through the thread, one person seems to have said it and then others just latched on (despite insufficient evidence).
But as with anything, I could be wrong lol. And also, as someone who has been rejected, its damn-well time to get on with my day and stop waiting around! The future awaits!
Just regarding the button theory origin story ...
At the very bottom of this page - https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/graduate/after-you-apply/self-service
It states that ‘Once a decision has been made on your application, no further documents can be uploaded.’
So I think that’s where the whole thing started, who knows for sure whether it is a true indication of anything but there doesn’t seem to have been any(many?) people waitlisted for the BCL/MJur so I think that’s very much still an option.
Hope everyone hears very soon!
re button theory, oh i see. I still think that it's too broad of a claim - literally no one has reported button up and offer. And yeah, I completely agree with waitlist being an option.
