Hi there,

Has anyone applied to the PhD in Law 2019/2020 program?

If so, have you received an invite for an interview yet?

I have applied. I applied last year and got an offer but couldn’t take it up because I didn’t get funding. Last year I was contacted on 18 January about interviewing, so if the timeline is the same this year I expect it could be anytime from now (if we are even invited!)

Keeping fingers crossed! I've clicked the refresh button so many times on the website that I'm wondering if it even still works.

I've had an interview with a potential supervisor earlier this week and it seemd to have gone pretty well. May I ask when your status got to the GAO stage last year so as to have a better idea with the timeline? Thanks a lot!

Is it safe to assume that my application was unsuccessful if I have not received feedback yet?

I wouldn't be pessimistic like that - they probably have tons of applications and interviews to sort through, keep your hopes strong because you never know!

Last year it was about 3 weeks between my interview and the status changing to GAO.

I wouldn’t assume that just yet! There could be lots of reasons you haven’t heard yet like they are figuring out who the best supervisor would be or the relevant person is too busy just now etc

I agree with bleepbloopbleep - it's still at the early stage of the decision-making process and I think the order of interview really depends on how quickly they can find a match between your proposed research and a potential supervisor interested in your topic.

Congratulations! I assume you know this, but that basically means you’re in as GAO just checks your documents and sets offer conditons
