The 2012 Cambridge Thread


@ ASM and Myxomatosis,

My situation is surprisingly anomalous to the rest; but there were no surprises in the conditions to warrant any immediate attention.

The only useful information that is now available on Camsis is the status of my Cambridge Trusts Application; which states "Application Forms Received"

Is anyone having difficulty accessing CamSIS? I've not been able to access my account for the past two days. Any help is much appreciated.

So you can also find out the status of Cam Trust after formal offer is given?
What I found out during these days was just that Cam Trust considers application only after formal offer is given and it seems that May is the deadline...

@walking.around,

The formal offer on camsis opens up several links under the "Application Information/Actions" heading. One of the links is titled "Tracking Your Finances". Through that link, you may view the offer status of all your scholarship applications.

I suspect that Cam Trust decisions stretch across several months, up till July. Devoid of a clearer picture, i postulate that the law department had ranked all of us for scholarships after the 2 Dec deadline, irrespective of the offer status. The scholarship and offer procedures could be mutually exclusive.

My humble view.

Can anybody please help me with a few doubts:

1) I paid the reservation fee for MCL about two weeks ago and my Camsis has still not been updated. I'm not sure if the amount has been received and if the same has been adjusted to my total fee liability. Does anyone know how long this takes? The MCL website says not to contact the MCL administrator regarding this.

2) My Camsis says that I must send the "Original Bachelor's Transcript" (even though I've uploaded a scanned copy of the same). The last line of the condition also says "Please note that while original degree certificates will be retained for collection, original transcripts will be destroyed." Now I'm not sure if I should also send the original copy of my Degree along with the transcripts! I emailed Mrs. Wade regarding this but have not received any reply as of now.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Camsis should also state that you can alternatively send "an authenticated bachelor's transcript". Thus, I would make a photocopy of your transcript and your degree each, go to your University with them and the originals and ask the Dean's office to authenticate the photocopy. Then you send to Cambridge these authenticated photocopies. This is how all LL.M. students at my university do it (as for US LL.M. you have to provide originals or autenthicated transcripts with the application already) and I have not heard of any problems.

Thanks Frontal. It's true that the condition mentions that I can send an authenticated copy. While I already have an authenticated copy of the Transcript with me, I don't have one of the Degree. I guess I'll just have to send them the original degree or a notarized copy asking them to retain it till the time I get there and collect it myself. Going back to my earlier university and asking them for an authenticated copy would be an ordeal at this stage, especially with the travel, time involved, university holidays etc.!!

Hi guys,

My camsis status changed to 'Conditional Offer Made' today. Academic condition stated "you must obtain an overall result of first class in your LLB".

Conditional Offer e-mail: 14 Apr

Hi,

I am feeling rather worried. Nothing has changed in my Camsis status. I received my conditional offer before 14th Apr. Is there anything i should do? or should i just wait....
"awaiting BOGS decision" status: 30 Apr

"Conditional Offer" status: 10 May



I am in the same position. E-mail was sent 17 March, and still, my Camsis only shows "under consideration by degree commitee".

Just wait, I say. Is anyone in the same position, especially those who received the email in March or even earlier?


I've already decided to go to the States for my LLM degree, but I'd like to let you know that I received the informal conditional offer email in late March, yet my CamSis status is still "Under Consideration by Degree Committee". So... you're not alone!

No problem. I'm going to University of Virginia instead. It's more of a country preference than of a university preference...

People in that position need not worry about securing a place. It is done once you receive the email. However, you cannot really prepare for anything (housing, visa etc) before accepting the offer and fulfilling the conditions...

Thanks... just now received an email confirming the academic condition...
it seems that I may miss it by 0.02...

btw, my academic condition is to have 3.46 for CGPA, which is higher than what I had when I submitted my application.

Given how nothing has happened for some time, i have not checked my Camsis lately. So i am not sure when this had happened, but today i discovered that my status has changed to "Awaiting decision by the Board of Graduate Studies"- Status: The degree committee is satisfied with your application. However, your offer has not yet been approved.

Same here! Separately, Ms Wade also replied my email which I sent about three weeks ago asking about my offer conditions - mine are only financial and college membership.
