Magic button still there

When you open the Graduate Applicant Self Service, click "Supporting Documents" on any one of your applications and scroll down.

At the bottom left-hand corner of the page you'll see a drop-down menu where it reads "Please select" and with the options "Transcript" and "English langauge test result". To the side of it you'll find the magic button, reading "Upload".

Once the admissions team make a decision on your application, it will disappear, as after that moment you cannot upload any more documents to your application. As seen from previous threads, the button disappearing indeed means that a decision has been made, and that it is probably a good one. However, you cannot conclude anything in case it remains there, as there are many reports from people getting offers or being rejected without a previous button disappearance.

Lol No worries at all! Someone else perfectly answered your question for you, I see. I believe the button will start disappearing somewhere in the next week.

Hello everyone, 

Does anyone know the chances of being accepted with only two academic references and one professional reference? The website states that's allowed but that three academic references are "strongly preferred" so I'm not sure if Oxford tends to accept candidates with a professional reference. I'm applying for the MJur by the way which I know tends to be more academic-focused than for example the MLF. 

It really wasn't possible for me to find a third professor who would be capable of actually discussing my academic achievements/talents in good enough detail so I opted to ask my firm's partner who could deliver a much more in-depth description of my aptitudes. I tried to use this as a strategy to really just ask people who are very familiar with my achievements instead of getting shallow references, but now I'm not too sure if that might play against me. Other than that I do believe my application is quite strong. I'm just not too sure if I should keep my expectations rather low because of that lol

It was my understanding that the references are fairly low down the list in terms of what they consider, and since you have at least two academic ones I'd find it surprising if that was what came against you, unless it was an extremely close thing between you and another applicant.  I wouldn't worry about it too much - we'll find out soon anyway!

That does calm me down, thanks! And you're right, there's nothing much we can do about it now, but it's a little hard not to start thinking about every single detail of your application lol

I totally get you - downloaded mine from the portal earlier this week just to have something to do rather than refresh this forum!

It seems as though MJur and BCL happen at roughly the same time from last month's thread, but you never know!
