The Definitive 2011 Cambridge Thread

My situation is equally frustrating- I got an offer on feb 26. Since I applied using paper application, they probably have not allocate the time to create camsis account for me. Therefore, I have zero idea where my application is at the moment. I already had to deposit a large sum of money for another school.
I wish I have camsis to track down the progress of my application.

Flowergirl(no joking this time) I, too, have sent a paper application and I received a letter by post in which they informed me of my Camsis password and ID.
I believe that you should complain about this, perhaps call the Admissions Office. Everyone is supposed to have a Camsis account, regardless of the way they applied.

Dear Holly Golightly,
Right after I got the email indicating conditional offer, I did contact the admission office for details on setting up camsis account. However, I was told that it will be "a few weeks/a while" until the account gets created for my use and they will, therefore, email the conditions to me "as soon as possible."
Well, all I can do right now is wait because I don't know how long is " few weeks/ a while."
Thanks for the advice though. I did my best to email and make phone calls but got no response.

Dear flowergirl,
sorry to hear that they have been so negligent with your account. Fingers crossed that they send you an email with the conditions soon.

My Camsis still says "Papers with Degree Committee" BUT as of today now says in a little line below, "You have been recommended for an offer subject to Board of Graduate Studies approval." So someone is entering offers into Camsis; it's just taking awhile.

Hi Guys, just thought I'd let you all know that I received my formal offer letter in the post yesterday. To be honest the letter doesn't tell you anything more than the self sevice pages. My Camsis account was updated about three weeks ago now.

Hi Dionne7, I'm glad people are finally receiving their formal letters! I just wondered if yours said which college you were being considered at. In past years, it seems to have been printed on the page somewhere...?

Mine still says "Papers with Degree Committee" on Camsis but when I telephoned yesterday I spoke to a lady who said applications are now at "third stage" and to phone Suzanne Wade back in 5 mins which I did but she never called back I kept phoning until after 5pm when I know she goes home. Do you think I have got an offer or a rejection? My friend got rejected 2 months ago. I also applied for International Relations and got rejected which I and my uni were very surprised about but I told Cambridge Law was my preferred choice. I want to study International Law subjects within LLM Law. OMG got to wait until Monday now - if its a rejection I'm going to be devastated.

I've been accepted at 4 other institutions (Greenwich, Kings, SOAS & Reading) but their funding is rubbish and I cant afford to pay myself. But Cambridge colleges I applied to dont reject anyone on financial grounds so Cambridge means I will definitely get funding. Oh please give me an offer. Lol.

Zara78, I am not sure that Camb is so generous with respect to funding opportunities (unlike Harvard, for example). There are numerous partial scholarships, but the amounts covered are not high. And what is more, the indication to be considered for acceptance by some colleges, does not mean that you will be definitely placed in one of them. In any case, I am sure that you will meet somehow the financial conditions upon the receipt of the offer. And you should consider to ask for a student loan in order to pay for one of the schools that have already accepted you. After all, a LLM is a professional degree and thereby, an investment.

I was wondering whether the admission process is closed now. I mean, I have not seen any offers being made by Cambridge in the past three weeks.

Can anyone throw some light on this?

Hi guys,
I need some advices. If anyone can help reply, it would certainly be kind of you. After a week of phone calls, I was lucky to get a hold of someone-
1) I was told that my academic condition is the exact same GPA that I had when I applied ( which is a higher than first and is virtually impossible to maintain-because it means that I have to have all A's in my last term)
Anyone got this kind of academic condition? I am surprised by mine because from what I read, the academic condition is usually just "first."
Do you know if Board of Graduate Studies do consider request for revising academic conditions? Please advise

2) Which website do I log in for camsis? I was able to obtain the login name and password and would like to see how it works.

Best of luck to everyone here - I got rejected.

But I still have offers of international law at SOAS, intl relations at Kings and Intl Rel, Law & World Order at Reading. As fees are half price at Reading probably will go there.

All the best

I recall from last year's posts, someone had a similar condition - one that was virtually impossible to meet. They emailed Ms. Wade and got it changed or something. Could give that a try?

Thanks so much for your advice. I will give it a try. If it does not work out, I guess I will just go to another school.
