    Still under consideration! I can't believe they haven't made a decision/at least gone to the effort to email saying you're on the waiting list. I'm super annoyed! Now another whole weekend of waiting! How many others are still under consideration? Wel done to this who already have got in!
    Im not sure if there is a waiting list. Try to phone on Monday in the phone number of graduate admissions (you can find it in camsis)

    I'm from the EU but study here in the UK at a 'ok' uni (around 40 or so in the league tables for my course, Computer Science).
    I have good firsts in all my modules, worked for one year in a famous financial services firm as a placement and for a couple of months in South America last summer.
    I used my experiences as the main selling point as I guess everone has a first and some people will come from more exotic unis, especially american applicants...

    Thanks I hope so, I mean judging by the activity on this thread on friday I'd say that there must be very few applications left to check..! Good luck to you too!

    To be honest I really disliked their application form where they didn't even want a CV and there was a strict line limit for the three questions.

    I feel like they don't have enough information to have a well rounded profile for the applicant, whereas LSE for example asked for a personal statement just giving guidelines (eg. 2-3 pages), plus CV/references. Imperial asks for even more information (essay, cv/references + 4 questions and interview at the end). Cambridge doesn't even interview... feels a bit weird

    Can people who got accepted post their profiles please ?

    I'm afraid Cambridge just looks at the grades, and I barely meet the requirements

    Well the grades are the bare minimum, unfortunately. Otherwise nearly all of the 500 applicants with a first would get a place I think..

    One could think that once you meet the very high requirement (i.e. prove you're a good student), they might just take a close look at your experience and project. Other schools do that.

    How long was it after you sent your original transcripts that the change was reflected at Camsis?

    And btw how long was it after you sent your original transcripts that the change was reflected at Camsis?
