The 2012 Cambridge Thread

Read a post stating that generally cambridge does not consider applicants with less than 80% .Any idea if this is true?


If you're completing an Honours degree is that even possible? Considering Profs mark out of 85 instead of 100. I think anything over 70% is phenomenal...am I wrong?

Mind telling us your completion date of application? Is it a conditional or unconditional offer? Thanks.

Does Cambridge give unconditional offers at all? I believe that they at least give a financial condition - and academical conditions for current students.

No, it does not. Each Cambridge LLM offer provides for at least a financial condition (basically, submitting a signed declaration that your studies will be funded by some institution or that you have the financial means to pay autonomously). Other common conditions are: English language proficiency and academic results.

Congrats to all of you who've already received their offers. I'm sure it's only a matter of time for the rest us. ;-) Fingers crossed!

Were all those offers made last week or were the recent ones made this week?

NOT AT ALL! Most offers will be made by March, I believe.

Wow, OK! I only asked because I assumed that there would be a period where the confirmations were going out (now) and a period when the rejection emails would be going out (later). My bad.

does anyone know whether they process the applications by countries of origin or region respectively?

offer through email :)

and yes Cam is my first choice, why shouldn't it be? O_O

I do not have enough funds to study in the US and if I will get an offer from Ox I will see if I get a scholarship from any Institution.

If I get admitted *with scholarship* at KCL and with no funding at Oxbridge, I'll go to KCL, it seems pretty obvious to me.

All those endless discussions on which LLM is the best one do not make any sense to me, to be honest guys....

Lucky you if you can study at Oxbridge without being offered financial support, that's not my case. Still I reckon I am lucky of the results achieved so far, thanks to my family.

Hm, and what about doing the bar first and earn the money by working at a law firm for 1-3 years before doing the LL.M., i.e. saving the funds needed on your own instead of having to hope for financial aid?
