With around 20-25 posters in this forum, we are certainly not a despicable constituency.

Hence, out of two one is possible/probable:
a) Either we all are at the bottom of the applicants´ food chain, and hence, undeserving of the privilege of an early admission notice.

b) Or (and I fall for this), they are simply taking their time to do things right, regardless of predetermined schedules, etc..

Take for instance the case of a friend of mine who was accepted to Oxford a few years ago: He received his notice in late March (if not April), and he heard first from the Scholarships Awarding body than from the University itself. That´s how he knew he was accepted!

My whole point being, this is such a massive and complex process, that it is naïf to expect a response right away.

I think that both a) and b) are true :)

I would suggest that even expedited offers are unlikely to arrive for some weeks yet. I would expect that the decisions are likely to arrive in March rather than February. I would love to be proven wrong though!

I would have to agree with you though. Looking at last year's posts, it seems that the offers start to arrive around mid-march. Anyway, mid-march isn't too long away right, haha.

Probably! Especially if Oxbridge are indeed receiving a greater number of applications than previous years.

Here's a question ... should we be lucky enough to receive an offer ... would anyone here be put off by being admitted to any particular college?! Say for example you wanted to go to one of the larger beautiful and old colleges and obtained a place in one of the modern graduate only colleges?!

Of course,

Let me refine it. Would the college allocation make a difference for your choice should you receive an offer from both?

In the best case scenario (getting offers from both), my main concern would be if I get a scholarship from Cambridge and none for Oxford, which would I choose. I'm very much inclined towards the BCL, but a half or full scholarship from Cambridge would make me less sure.

I don't really care about college choices as well as long as I get a uni place. Wouldn't worry too much about the funding though, got it firmly secured ;)

I would sleep in a tent if I get into Oxbridge :)

It won't be a good thought given the record snowfall and its increasing proabability due to global warming..


I don't need my health anymore after Oxbridge :)

Reverse Trends.. I have just started thinking seriously about my health... you might want to exchange some pleasantries there.!!!


If we don't get into Oxbridge, at least we will still have our health :)
