    I can't believe I was checking Camsis daily from February for this haha! So frustrating to find out now how they work (or don't work). I'm 50/50 atm on even finding out this week!

    Same here from the end of January checking even like 2 to 3 times a day hahaha, I honestly don't know what to think.. happy that I'm not the only one in the same situation at least
    But why were you checking so early when the department website said decisions would only be available from end March? (and yes I do realise that is a long time ago now!)

    i phoned the graduate admissions office and they told me that from the beginning of the previous week they have not informed by the department about their decision. So im afraid we have to wait for a long time...
    What do you mean by beginning of the previous week?

    So if they haven't yet finalised decisions... and it takes BOGS over a week to update accounts after being told by department.. I'm guessing we won't find out for at least over one week.
    What a bunch of idiots! Comeon already. losing it!

    My application status is: "Your application is being reviewed by the degree committee"

    how long does it stay with degree committee? i thought that in Business school the degree committee and the department are the same.

    I think there is enough information on this status in this year's as well as last year's thread, plus see the general Cambridge postgraduate thread.. But apart from the experiences mentioned there, nobody can look into people's minds. At one point we all just have to wait.

    I also emailed last week and all they could say was something along the lines of final decisions are about to be made.. hopefully that's a good sign if people already got rejections back. But still.. I agree.. how hard can it be to update camsis for ppl!
    Same here. Guess we are in the waiting list of waiting list...

    Hello! 8)
    So what college is everyone going to?? Fitzwilliam is one if the further ones away, so i slightly regret not selecting a college / submitting an open application.
    But i did hear that many people do not end up with their college choices anyways?

    Not necessarily. We don't know how many offers have been given. Especially as they over-prescribe always on the assumption some won't meet the entrance requirements/won't turn up etc.

    Earlier in the morning the status of application became "awaiting consideration by BoGS"
    So i suppose that they finished the selection process and shortly they will change all the statuses

    Is BoGS like an unofficial confirmation of your place? Is it possible to get rejected even after the BoGS stage?

    It is more a paperwork checking exercise.

    As threeportdrift said

    It could take BoGS an eternity to update the website, or it could happen tomorrow, it just depends what they are prioritising at the moment.

    Seems a group more people went into BoGs in the last two days. I wonder when they will send me an email to reject me.

    How do they check the paperwork?

    If lets say a student from a random university somewhere in Brazil applied, how are they going to verify his documents? Are they going to ring up the university or something like that?

    In contrast with someone from a reputed British institute; how are his documents going to be verified? I am sure that it is against the law for universities to disclose information on their students without his permission.

    Just curious

    Why would you suppose this? How does them offering you an offer translate to them changing all the statuses and finishing the process?
