Thanks for the "infamous", mate! It adds a lot to my cv.

Cara, recebi o email no dia 22 de fevereiro, na quarta-feira de cinzas. Apliquei para um outro curso lá tb e até agora não veio resposta. Hoje eu enviei um email perguntando sobre as atualizações do sistema da BGS, porque o status ainda não mudou. Liga para a Suzanne Wade perguntando o que se passa. LSE é muito legal; tem um sócio aqui do meu escritório que fez e adorou. Acho que o único concern de LSE é o custo de moradia. Cambridge é quase de graça. Abs

Para o MCL, não?

Pois é, o custo de vida é muito mais elevado em Londres. 140 libras por semana num quarto da LSE. Ainda estou no aguardo de alguma bolsa, mas irei de qualquer forma, também ouvi falar muito bem do curso.

De qq forma, enquanto não for rejeitado por Cambridge, mantenho a esperança, embora ela definhe a cada dia.

I called the Faculty and spoke to Ms Wade yesterday. She was really helpful.According to her, they have got more places that they've not given out yet as the Degree Comm is still considering some applications. So no news, does not necessarily mean bad news.

Hi Guys,

I have read with keen interest and observed the anxiety built over the past few weeks by reason of non-receipt of either offer letters or rejection. I therefore feel it is necessary to say sometime.

As someone who has had an experience, twice on this admission circle (admitted last year and this year too), take it from me that Cambridge will continue to dispatch offers until June/July 2012. I got mine sometime in late May 2011, although I couldnt make due to funding challenges.

So please, except you have recieved a rejection letter, keep the hope alive.

Regards.

I think it is a right choice))) I have been deciding between NYU and MCL for a while and finally decided that MCL would be a better option for me. First, in my work I quite often come across English law (not US) and MCL with its corporate-oriented courses will definitely be of an assistance when I am back home. Second, MCL's group size of no more than 30 students will give us an excellent opportunity to share our experiences and views on different issues. And finally I look forward to attending lectures of Mr. Cheffins and Mr. Kosmin)))

By the way, have you heard anything from colleges? I have been unsuccessful at King's College, so now waiting for the Queens' College.

Well, I had to decide between MJur and MCL, did not apply for MLF because it's not very law-related and decided for MCL (although you cannot opt for a dissertation here) because in 2012-2013 Oxford does not offer to MJur students the European and Comparative Corporate Law course and most probably no undergrad company law courses and I had my doubts on the approval of my thesis proposal on these subjects due to the number of students and possible lack of sufficient number of supervisors as per Ms Biese's answers. So, that somehow facilitated my choice:)
I intend to further my study with a PhD and switch to academia on corporate law. I agree that the small number of students and the focused curriculum is indeed an advantage for both corporate lawyers and future academics. In addition, the term end-examination is a very comfortable choice for students in comparison to year-end exams.
I indicated Clare College as my first preference and no news so far. For graduate level, the college doesn't really matter as far as I know. But, best of luck for your second choice anyway:)
