    I applied in mid October and submitted all relevant docs within days. In mid January my application status went from 'under department consideration' 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.

    I am not familiar with the process so can't provide any credible insight into what happens next. That said, my feeling is the next stage (perhaps conditional offer) will be within 2 weeks.

    thoughts?
    Looks like you'll get an offer. What is your profile: work experience, academics, undergrad uni etc?

    Brace yourselves for a long wait boys and girls! I was given a conditional offer for the MPhil REF at Cambridge last year. Application was received in the beginning of December and the offer was made in June. So about a 6 month wait...

    Its not a quick process by any means, so start thinking long and hard about your chances of getting into Cambridge, and how badly you actually want to go there, in comparison to your other offers.

    That said, maybe the waiting process isn't as long for all applications but that's just my experience so hope it helps someone a little bit. I know it's a pretty tough time with all the waiting and not knowing.

    What about online updates? When did it change to "under consideration by BoGS"? As far as I understand it is as good as "offer coming soon".

    Nice one. Best of luck Well the committee meeting was on Tuesday, so they must have made a lot of decisions. Might be worth phoning them and asking.

    If they haven't decided yet, then you must sit in the pool for longer. I saw that Real Estate Finance is a heavily oversubscribed course..272 people applied last year :eek:

    With Environmental Policy, we are also able to study Real Estate modules. But I think we can only elect one.

    It really does not matter how many people applied, what matters is the percentage of those who got offers. Percentage wise it is pretty much the same as the other courses, 35-46% of applicants get an offer:

    More people apply - more people get accepted.

    I meant it in the sense that if there are more applicants it may take longer to assess and process the applications

    Are you waiting for a reply for Real Estate Finance? What stage are you at?

    Hi guys. Nice to see all you fellow applicants for Cambridge REF. I applied some time in first week of February and is still awaiting for that change in status to "Consideration for BoGS".. A friend of mine had that for his application to MPhil Management and received his confirmed offer one week later.

    Currently, I also have an offer from LSE's MSc REEF. Anyone else in the same predicament? It would be great if you could share any opinions you have on that course...
