Last year no one seemed to hear anything on the Monday either.

Some of those who received offers later in the week received emails about potential scholarships and funding before the offers, so keep an eye out for those too.

I'm not sure but I thought the consensus was that funding emails aren't indicative of admission? I could be completely wrong though.

I do hope we hear today! I would also be much indebted to anyone who calls and gets a timeline if we don't hear anything by mid afternoon today.

When I called them yesterday, they were quite non-committal about a particular date. They maintained that the results would be out by the last week of May and that they had internal deadlines which they cannot disclose.

I assume you're talking about funding decisions with the end of May deadline? Someone called last week and they said sometime after 15 March i.e. this week and the FAQs say to contact them within 2 weeks of the published deadline, which in our case is 13 March, if you haven't heard anything.

I'm pretty sure the website says 'late March onwards'. 13 March is another deadline, for a different set of applications.

So May sounds about right to me.

It does indeed say "late March onwards" on the website.

It won't be as late as May, though. That mid-May notification date is for applications with a deadline of 13 March; whereas the BCL deadline was much earlier, on 23 January.

Someone spoke to Admissions last week, I think, and they were told 16 March onwards. In previous years decisions have always been issued at around this time, too. So I'm guessing we may hear this week...

That's the general university page and I didn't mean the 13 March 2015 deadline on there.

On the page below on the Faculty of Law's website (under the "How quickly can I expect to hear?" tab) it says we should hear on or shortly after 13 March 2015. I think this page is up to date as it has the 2015 deadlines.

I think people were notified on 18 March last year.

when I emailed them last week their response was that all offers will be made mid to late March....and I've never heard of anyone receiving an offer later than that. I might be wrong though

In that case, I suppose we're going to find out soon. Which is great. Because I'm getting really anxious waiting.

I have a scholarship application that I need to make by the end of this week, which requires you to specify the course you have been accepted in and provide evidence; so unless they respond by the end of this week I'm in trouble :p

To be fair, it hasn't even been 2 months since the deadline, and they have to process over 800 applications for some 140 places, each with a legal writing sample, so I think the wait is pretty reasonable. Nerve-wrecking, but reasonable :)

Do they give decision for BCL and MJur at same time?

Think so, yeah. Around the same time, at least. But I think decisons for MSc in Law & Finance might already be out, so maybe not exactly the same time for all the ones mentioned in the excerpt from the FAQ section below.

"How quickly can I expect to hear?

The admissions process is complex and can take some time. We have many applications to read and compare. For the BCL, MJur, and MSc Law and Finance, you can expect to hear from the Faculty on or shortly after 13 March. College decisions may take around six to eight weeks more.

Graduate Admissions Office contact details..."

I emailed the Law Faculty today and I was informed that we will hear from them by the end of this week.
Lets see how it goes then.
