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


llmhopeful...

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.

Sorry JamesHoward - I know its not what you want to hear.


My button is still there and I received an offer for the BCL (or an emailing informing me they will be making an offer)

However, I do agree that there is no where near enough evidence to back up any button theory. It achieves nothing other than instilling anxiety and encouraging people to overthink.

I agree with you 100%. I know a rejection isn't the end of the world (I'm not depressed I swear!) but I think I or maybe all of us would want some determinative answer be it an offer/rejection/waitlist. It's only natural that people speculate and cling to every ounce of hope there is when they don't hear anything back. Nevertheless, we'll hear soon enough even in a couple of hours! Good luck guys

A few people in the button has never disappeared and is still there boat.

Anyone without a button still waiting to hear?


To respond, and to completely back-pedal on my theories/views, my button just disappeared. I have not heard back. I am still expecting to get rejected because I know my application kind of sucked.

I am so bored that I went and checked the BCL offer holders who shared on social media. Their last name initials were: H, I, F and D. So maybe offers are handed out alphabetically? Can anyone in the offer holder Whatsapp group confirm?

Anyone received a conditional offer letter with a typo? My condition is to 'achieve a first class inn your LLB'. 

I know I sound very ridiculous right now but can I just confirm that the offer asks for a first class? I literally searched up the meaning of 'inn' and whether it's an archaic word that means something else #can'tstopoverthinking. 1f633

I would email Oxford to confirm but I'm scared they will think I lack common sense and retract the offer.

not that I think that theory is true (but who knows), that would rule yourself out if your last name begins with G haha

Hey! Don’t worry, my anxiety would totally take me to the same thought process as well :) I haven’t been offered but a friend of mine was and her condition was a first class LLB, hope that helps!
