The 2012 Cambridge Thread


Billyjoe28,

I rang Graduate Admissions today to explain my concern. They told me that I have 7 days in which to upload my supporting documents and until 16 December for my referees to upload my references.

They did take my name and, interestingly, my self-service account details arrived about 30 minutes after I rang.

Hi all!

Sorry to bother you again but I am getting really worried. I posted some days ago, that I submitted all my documents and references and that still my status shows "awaiting documents".

Trellick told me it was the same with him but now that the deadline is coming closer and still my status has not changed I wanted to ask for some more experiences of those who have already applied. Is it the same for all of you?

Admissions Office does not answer my emails...


I emailed Miss Wade regarding the same and she told me it's only normal to see that in your account since the office is really busy though the wording may be a little misleading but there's nothing to worry.
Hope that helps!

I don't know about you guys, but my status has changed from «awaiting documents» to «Awaiting Consideration by Department» this very morning. The self-service account seems to be still working!

The admissions madness seems now to be behind most of us!

what link are you using? If I try, it says "CamSIS is currently unavailable due to a technical issue. We are aware of the issue and working to fix it as quickly as possible."

Ah, thank you. Now I'm not only able to log in, but I also have an unconditional offer.

I'm joking. But it works, thanks Myxomatosis, you hacker

Applied in early November, application complete in late November.

http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/gradstud/prospec/pdf/process_chart1.pdf says that applications only go to the Degree Committee AFTER the Department has made a decision which would mean that they have in my case. And not told me.

When filling out my GRADSAF, I ticked the box "I wish to be considered for AHRC or other Research Council funding (Home/EU applicants only)".

However, looking at the application materials for AHRC funding, I find that one is eligible to apply only in case applying for a "Research Preparation Master's scheme" (RPM). Is the Cambridge LL.M. to be qualified as being within that category (or within its opposite: a Professional Preparation Masters Scheme - PPM)?

If I am not eligible to apply, does having ticked the box in the GRADSAF hamper my chances of application?

I don't think it does. I ticked that box as well and I'm rather not eligible, so that's my hope at least. Unless it's the all decisive admission test, then we're f*****.
