Can someone call and ask if all offers and waitlists have already been distributed? I would do it myself, but I am very angry and afraid of becoming offensive.

I can’t, I’m in the middle of another conference call which is probably a good thing because they would not waitlist but blacklist me after the conversation

I just called through it went straight through to general admissions, she said "it's very much dependant on the faculty in question, unfortunately due to home working there isn't a number I can direct you to, sorry. Just be patient to hear your outcome".

Thanks! Now if that’s not a I-have-no-idea-and-honestly-couldn’t-care-less answer, I don’t know what is

This is similar to the response I received for my mail the other day. However since other phone calls got responses that decisions were finalised on Friday (and one that we will hear EOD today) I have no clue what's going on there. 
Let's hope for the best and expect the worst!

I think they don’t have a clue either:

grad admissions sends rejections out, so they should now about the timeframe even if they refuse to tell us the outcome. but this is the second time they’re referring us back to the department which on the other hand claims that all decisions (or at least bcl) were finalized on friday. mind you, ‘finalized’, not communicated because we know that some bcls received their waitlist results on monday. there was only one reported mjur waitlisting on friday and that’s it.

Add to that the info that we were supposed to get feedback by the end of the day today, and one could have assumed that any results (apart from rejections) should have been communicated today.
I still don't get it.

I sent an email to the Faculty of Law today and Marianne answered: "I am afraid your application for the MJur was not successful. You will receive an official email from Graduate admissions in the next few days".
So this is the end for me, but I don't know if there are offers/waitlistings to come, she just said that and I thought you should know.
Of course I am not happy, but at least now I can stop the anxiety and just focus on my daily activities.

Best of luck for you guys!

I’m sorry 1f614 we’ll be joining you shortly and I hope we’ll all have better luck or at least be shown some respect somewhere else!

Don't feel bad, everyone. I have a PhD in law from Cambridge, multiple publications in top journals, two LLM degrees (one taught and one research) with distinction from Edinburgh, practice experience, and I've even interviewed for teaching and research positions at Oxford - I was still rejected.

Its just like the boilerplate response DarthRevan received, except mine was related to the BCL. 

Can you please share the email address that sent you the reply? Thank you :)

That’s ridiculous. Maybe then there are still offers to be distributed? I honestly don’t believe so for a second, but it would correspond with the statement that the rejections will be sent “in the next few days” (... after the remaining offers and waitlist places are issued).
But again: I don’t think so.

Hi everyone! BCL applicant here and in the same boat as everyone else! My button disappeared a few days ago. I applied very promptly and before the deadline, and expressed my interest in the Bar. I have a place at Cambridge for the LLM, but my Oxford application wasn’t as strong...so I do expect a rejection, but the way in which rejections have been handled is very odd!

Genuinely interested in this - what did you feel the BCL would add to this impressive CV? I'd imagine with these credentials you'd have so many options (certainly in academia or the Bar etc) available to you already!

Anyway - sounds like it's Oxford's loss!

Actually, I didn’t receive anything yet, I was just replying to @princessmegan, but I’m sure my sweet rejection’s on the way! ;) I am beyond impressed by your achievements and although you surely have good reasons for applying to Oxford, it is as @llmhopeful2020 said - their loss!

I essentially made the point in my personal statement that the BCL was the one thing I wanted to do - for myself - before I started an academic career. Thus, its not a qualification I 'need' by any means. 

It is at least plausible that put them off, but one must wonder how having a candidate like me would do anything other than make them look better. i wrote to the dean about it - perhaps i will get to the bottom of it, perhaps not. 

 at any rate, you all will do great things, no matter where you end up.
