I hate to be that guy, but if everybody’s buttons have disappeared, it’s unlikely more offers are coming out:( 


Button dissappeared not means only offer ,but rejection also ,friend apply for MPhil,button disappeared last Thursday and rejection today



Really?? For my observations from previous years, they sent offers first along with waitlists, and then rejections. It seems that we haven't heard any offers from MPhil. And my button is still there. So, I am not sure whether your friend's rejection means what to the remaining candidates. Good luck to him and us. Feel more worry now...

This is an anomaly indeed 1f9d0 There is too much uncertainty regarding their admission process to make any prudent assumptions...

Just saw some questions about the button status for waitlisted students, I thought I could finally contribute to this thread 1f604 Got waitlisted for MLF and the button is still here. 

I know it must be stressful for everyone going through this process (myself included), but honestly nothing we do now would affect the outcome, so if you are reading this, I would strongly encourage you to take your mind out off the application and just chill out!

My button for the MPhil in Socio-Legal Studies disappeared today. I don't know what it means actually.

But the button for the MPhil in Law is still there. Do you guys have similar situation and know what will come?

I saw the below on thestudentroom. You may find it very helpful:

"I am a DPhil student at Oxford, did my UG and Masters there too. I was briefed about this by my thesis supervisor, so I know how the admission process works. This might only be the case of my academic department (DPIR), but I assume this applies univocally to all departments at Oxford.



The upload button disappears, not when a decision is made, but when the Office of Graduate Admissions has accepted your department's final decision on your application. This is to say that, if you can't see your upload button, your application is no longer under consideration by BOTH the Department and the central Office of Graduate Admissions and that they have scheduled a time when you'll receive the outcome, either automatically (rejection/waitlist, nighttime), or 'manually' by email (offer, daytime).

Upload buttons disappeared before a weekend are usually a bad sign, and people experiencing this usually receive rejections in the following week.

I hope this can quell your doubts, and hopefully it puts an end to these bizarre button theories ahahI see. Then socio-legal is gone for me but law is still there."

On a side note, I got rejected by Chevening scholarship - so doubtful whether I will be able to fund Oxford even if I get an offer. I'd be hunting down private funding/sponsorship if I get an offer but that will be very difficult.

Edit: would hurt even more if I get an offer but cant attend due to lack of funding...

I'm sorry to hear that! I hope you will definitely succeed next year.


I also applied to Chevening, but this year I was rejected at the first stage. It was funny because last year I made it to the second stage and I had an interview at the embassy.

They have very interesting selection criteria. Apparently in a year my essays ceased to suit them 1f605


Oxford itself, in addition to prestige and quality education, is good because it has its own internal scholarships 1f609

Thanks, @Jumbo! That's a very informative and comprehensive clarification. Especially, this year, for MPhil we discussed previously, it seems that someone got a rejection with upload button that disappeared last week but we haven't seen any offer in this forum. Good luck to all of us!

Sorry to hear that you were also rejected. But yeah definitely Chevening has a very weird and non-transparent selection criteria. Not sure if Id be offerred Oxford's (and colleges') scholarships. That would definitely be amazing. I also applied to Weidenfeld-Hoffman scholarship but I reckon that is extremely competitive!

 

I'm sorry to hear that! I hope you will definitely succeed next year.

I'm fine, if they hadn't rejected me, I still wouldn't have been able to accept it for a number of personal reasons.

I think it's better to try different options for scholarship programs! 

Everyone has a chance, despite the high competition. The main thing is to keep believing in yourself. 

It is a great honor to compete with the best candidates from all over the world.

Apparently this scholarship is really very popular.

Last year there was a lot of movement during the night, both for rejections and buttons disappearing. I have no idea why that would occur, maybe they had home office and thus ended up working late.

Does someone from you know how Oxford consider the decision when you apply on two or more courses? Is each decision unaffected from the other course, or is the decision coordinated? So that they prevent an internal double occupancy. It would be great if someone could share some insights.
