The Definitive 2011 Cambridge Thread


Skiia

Hey everyone !

Does any of you know whether we can call anyone to get information as regards the status of our application ?

I don't want to seem insistent, nor stress them up, but I am actually looking forward to Cambridge's answer, as I might need to accept other offers in case I'm rejected by Cambridge. Furthermore, I must discuss funding with various private institutions and would not like to miss an opportunity due to delay issues.

Any advice is welcome !
Thanks to you all.

Unfortunately we are all confronted with deadlines, funding issues and such problems. And given that they said that decisions will be released by March, I do not think that they will offer any relevant assistance - it is still very early... But you can give it a try - nothing to lose!
Best luck :)

Yeah I thought so. I definitely know I'm not the only one to be worrying about funding, deadlines and stuff, but wanted to be sure anyway !
I will wait then and keep my fingers crossed !

Best of luck to you all

So, still no news from Cambridge then *sighs*.

Looks like most of us will be hearing back around February! The wait is killing me...

Have you heard of anyone being accepted yet? Maybe Mrs. Wade could tell us around when they will start sending the e-mails out? Did anyone call her?

If the 2009/2010 application cycle is any prediction of the 2010/2011 cycle, then it appears admission offers trickle out via email around this time (if not earlier) and into February and beyond. But maybe this year is different, since no one is on here sharing good news. Is it still snowing in Cambridge?

there is either a significant decline in members of this forum, or that no offers/rejections have been issued yet!

Term starts on Tuesday, lectures on Thursday. Suzanne Wade is already working again, however. At least she sends around emails to current LLMers.

Are the lectures poor or do you just not like lectures? Just curious---the LLM is very expensive, if I got in I'd be disappointed if the lectures were bad.

nothing wrong with lectures, some of the best i've ever had have been in cam, it's just as an undergrad there you have 3-4 hours every morning and it gets to be a bit much..

As a current LL.M. student, I feel that there is a rather substantial variation in the quality of lectures. Some are among the best I've ever had, whilst others are disturbingly bad. I'd urge you to speak to current students or alums about the specific professors AND courses that you wish to take to ensure that the lectures will be of sufficient quality. Do not make the mistake of using "Cambridge" as a proxy for "high-quality instruction."

Unfortunately, I don't have insight into any of those classes. I think there's a LL.M. alum who sometimes posts here who had more of a corporate focus (Private Equity, maybe?) Hopefully s/he can help.
