Oxford BCL/MJur 2012-2013

Rejected. Not happy, but at least I knew that it was a long shot application. I would have been more surprised if I were admitted... :P

Good luck to all those still waiting!

Rejected as well!

So the choice is easier for me : I'll go to Cambridge...

Demi88, you've aslo been admitted to Cambridge LLM : will you choose that over Oxford MLF ?
In this case, I will probably see you next year! :D

Got rejected as well (received an e-mail yesterday).

Good luck to all of you who have outstanding applications and congratulations to all of you who received an offer from the University of Oxford.

RolanDparis, it really depends on scholarships... I would like to attend the MLF as it perfectly meets my research and study interests. However, it costs virtually two times LLM... Which I can hardly afford. Besides, I am waiting for the outcomes of a Ph.D. selection. If I got an offer for the Ph.D. I think I should ask a deferral. Anyway, did you get the official letter from Cambridge? A month has gone and I haven't heard from them yet...

Congrats!!!

Could you tell us a little about your application? CV, referees, academic background, publications, awards etc. I guess everyone is eager to know who Oxford wants as its students.

Just got an offer for MJur via e-mail from Marienne Biese. Now I have to choose between MCL and Magister Juris. I still cannot believe it:)
Best of luck to all who are still waiting!

Thanks guys. Same conditions here - original transcript and financial/college condition.
To answer your question about my application, I finished my LLB (I got a first) from my Australian uni last year. My uni doesn't release rankings, but based on the % that get firsts, I'd estimate I'm top 5%ish. I have no legal experience and no publications. I have a couple of uni prizes, but no mooting etc (Prof Endicott (Dean of Oxford Law) came recruiting at my uni in July, and said they only really care about your marks when making admission decisions. Whether that policy is right or wrong, it paid off for me). There's a chance I may have misunderstood/misrepresented him though, so don't quote me on that. I think they probably look at things holistically, but they don't care so much if you don't have non-academic achievements (unlike US schools, for instance)
Good luck to all still waiting - won't be long now :)

Edit - I put this really badly - it's pretty much wrong. I've tried to explain below - sorry :)
