    Interesting to hear, I am in a comparable position. Do you have relevant RE experience? Did you already apply?
    I am actually applying from continental Europe - do you think this is a disadvantage (e.g. do they prefer UK Bachelors over continental european ones?) or maybe even an advantage (e.g. diversity)?
    I wonder when they will get back to us? Is it in 8 weeks (as mentioned on their website) or only after the deadline in March 2017?

    I'm applying from a different EU country too - hoping it won't matter that we did not do a UK bachelors! I won't be submitting my application for some time yet as I need to decide on my academic reference, but from reading threads from previous years it seemed that there were specific days that the board met and approved/rejected applications, so if you have submitted an application you will have to wait until the next board meeting, I guess. It definitely isn't a case of waiting until the deadline is over, but I think for students they are not sure about, meaning ones they don't want to definitely reject or definitely accept, I believe I read that some were still waiting until well into the summer before they knew definitively, so there is potentially a very long wait ahead!

    There was another thread started on this course for 2017/18 here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...php?p=67808196

    TBill123 - I have two one month internships with real estate firms but not sure how highly Cambridge value work experience? I think they are predominantly academia focused when assessing applicants!From reading past threads, the response time is somewhat lengthy from what I can gather in the most part but it varies for all! Also I do not think being from continental Europe will act as a disadvantage to you, it'll help if your current academic institution is well respected and/or known though!

    Hopefully they value relevant work experience somewhat. I have a first class honours, although it isn't a high one, however like you I have relevant work experience (a few years of experience, actually) so it would be beneficial for me if they took account of experience - I don't know if they do, though.

    Have been working on my PS and is ready to submit my app... I am still quite worried about my chances as I have got only 67% and 70% in my first two years which does not seem good enough, plus I dont really have any real estate focused work experience...

    wondering how everyone elses profiles look like ?

    According to the past experience, it means we can get offers unless we don't meet the minimum academic or language test standard.. When did your camsis change to BoGs?
