Oxford BCL/MJur Decision Thread 2011


Fermina
Hey I'm in too!!!

I need help on how to go on now.

- How do we accept our offers? Is i just by sending the transcript to the university or should we email them?
- How do we move on now with the scholarhips?
- What college are you going to chose?

Do you think the Mjur is as good and prestiged as the BCL?

Thank you all and congratulations!!

I know that there are some of us who have not heard from Cambridge. Would it be inappropriate to now contact Cambridge to let them know of my BCL offer and ask for the outcome of my application? I will probably opt for the BCL but I don't want to respond without considering all options and, if I receive an offer from Cambridge, I'd like to reject it so that my spot may be offered to someone else. Anyone else in this situation?

Also, has anyone started a Facebook group? It'd be nice to get acquainted with each other before September.

Good luck to everyone else who is still waiting, I'm sure the remainder of the offers are on their way!

You can e-mail and ask to the admin officer who sent the admission e-mail. I believe we will receive a postal mail which will describe this process but if this does not happen, we still have more than one month to learn.

I simply answered Marianne that I accept offer and she answered "Many thanks":) So, you should simply answer to the e-mail which notified you about your acceptance and that will work:)

Does any of you know when we will receive college offers? Do we need to first confirm our acceptance of the offer?

We will receive colleges decisions by the beginning of June! I have a question...to whom should we send the acceptance e-mail? I guess to the Graduate Admissions Office...

By the way; I sent an acceptance e-mail to Marianne Biese, and I guess this is sufficient. Nevertheless I also wrote a signed letter where I solemnly accepted their offer, and sent it with my transcript and IELTS-certificate. Most probably not necessery, but I had to send them a letter anyway.

It absolutely does. There will be no rhyme or reason to the way/time that the different colleges announce decisions - some will be early, some late - and you should not let this panic you.

Did someone receive information about scholarships (from department for example)? I am so anxious about receiving it! I've been last week at the Law Faculty and saw Marianne Biese, but she knows nothing about scholarships... She said just to wait:(

Sorry for not writing back to people who asked me questions!

The offer was from Magdalen and I received it by email.

Re: Scholarships - Clarendon has been awarded (http://www.clarendon.ox.ac.uk/2011results/) - not sure about the others but I am guessing it will be in the next couple of weeks/ month - but that is purely speculation!

Hi guys...

This is really for successful UK applicants...

As you may know, undergraduate students at Oxford take all their main exams at the end of their final year. Their degree class is thus determined by these 'finals'. (Note here that my condition is 'attaining a first in finals'.)

However, for those of us from other unis, this condition appears slightly odd - as you will all know, it is possible at many unis to get a first class degree without getting a first in your last year. (i.e. if you get very high second year results). So does the condition mean a first class degree (as I assumed when applying) or does it mean a first class result in your final year alone (average of 70)?

So my question...assuming others have the same condition, is anyone worried that they will be forced to get a first in their final year (i.e. average of 70) as opposed to just getting a first overall? To give you an example, my uni has a 'dominant quality' method (alongside the normal arithmetic average rules) which means that if you get 4 modules at a 1st and none below 2.2 you get a first overall. Thus, based on last year's results I could simply get a 2.2 this year and get a first overall...but I'm worried that it won't meet the 'attaining a first in finals' condition...

I'd love to hear your thoughts...
