The Definitive 2011 Cambridge Thread


I too had an offer in my inbox this morning when I woke up :D


Now I have to decide if I ask Ms. Wade to change my college choices...

How does that process work? I applied to Trinity but I think I'd rather be at Darwin...


There a few people who said (in another thread) that last year they wrote a nice e-mail to Ms. Wade asking if it could be possible to change their choices and they were allowed too...

I too applied to Trinity. What is your second choice?


Darwin is my second choice. But I think I would actually enjoy the experience there more.


In that case you don't have to worry. I've been told that there is virtually no LLM admitted into Triniuty

Cool...thanks!

Yup.

Should be clear they're going by country so if no one from your country has heard, you're in good shape!

ADMITTED!!!!!!! The OP finally has his day!!!!



Finally! Congratulations!

At this rate, I'll be the only one accepting a warm pint from the D&OK School of Law.


Haha I'll probably be joining you mate.

I really hope that the theory about offers being made by country is right, because at least two of us Aussies have not heard.

Congratulations to everyone who has received offers! I hope you are all relaxing and enjoying this moment, what a fantastic achievement!

I'd been sceptical about that theory until now, but with three Canadians receiving offers on the one day it's starting to look pretty good. And, true or not, I'm clinging to it until someone who outs themselves as an Aussie gets an offer... it's my only hope at this point!

To everyone with offers - please ignore the self-obsessed paranoia from those of us still in limbo. The offers are too numerous now to congratulate you all individually, but well done!

Are you guys aware if many offers were already made to EU students (except UK)?

Congratulations to those who are in and good luck for all the others that are still waiting.

I also received an offer this past week. I'm from Finland but studying in the UK. Is anyone on the LPC in England with an offer? I'm just wondering whether LPC grades will be a condition or not.

NO WORRIES Glennie - good luck - we all understand how it feels.

I think the whole process has been delayed for a couple of months because last year loads of offers were made in Jan, then Feb then all the way up till April. This year, it seems everything started two/three weeks ago thus an influx of offers ever since! In other words - it's ON ITS WAY!

I hope you're right. It does seem as though there's a constant flow of offers now, so hopefully the Aussies, Kiwis and everyone else still waiting will get their turn next week. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

So sorry Glennie, but I'm Australian and got my offer on Wednesday :( It'll happen, but I know how stressful the wait is!

Congrats everyone who's gotten offers, and all the best to those who are still waiting! Sometimes it takes up to April for them to provide an answer so there are still plenty of offers left to be given out no doubt.

Does anybody know how academic conditions are likely to be stated? Does Cambridge normally qualify a first class degree with a specific average grade, eg. 67 or something higher?

@ OKcomputer : lol... it never stops does it... Once you've finally received the precious offer letter, the headache of getting in stops but then the pain of funding begins. I totally understand how it feels (even though I haven't gotten in Cambridge myself yet). If I do get into Cambridge though, I'd even rob a bank to pay up :D
