    Hi guys. Here's another applicant. Congrats to BKSM and other offer holders.
    I completed my application documents early this month. It was quite late and seems to be a long wait.. maybe mid April or later?
    Got offers from Cass and Reading this week but not sure I will make a deposit. Only look forward to good news from Cambridge at this moment.

    Congrats BKSM! I am also an applicant to REF 16/17 and is still waiting for an update. Would you mind letting me know when did you apply for the course and whether you applied straight out of an undergraduate degree? Thanks a lot!

    I am currently a second year studying business at Durham. Is it worth applying while you're still in third year, or worth waiting until you graduate?

    BKSM, please correct me if I am wrong but did you apply last year but didn't get in? Could you share with us what made your application successful this year? Thank you very much.

    Its Easter mate, you won't get any update. Also, next BOGS meeting is on 3rd May, so that is an ideal date for status change. Any update around mid-end of April, would likely to be a rejection.

    After missed the Feb and Mar offers, I think majority of the places should be allocated. For me, chance of getting an offer is very slim by now. If I am good enough, I should have an offer already.

    Time to get back to normal life and leave it behind. Door is always open, can always come back next year.

    It is kind of insider info I would say...But most of them have done internships in renowned financial institutions or land developers..
