Happy to help! Regarding the Cambridge experience, it really depends on how much a person tries to make out of it. 9 months are really short so I encourage you to really enjoy it! Like grabbing lunch with classmates in different colleges and doing college-level sports!
Yeah I can imagine it flies by really quickly so would try to get as involved as possible. I’m very torn at the moment because I also have a scholarship offer at LBS, but I’ve been at UCL for three years which is down the road from LBS and want a change/new experience. Only got a few more days before I have to decide which one to go for. Much worse problems to have I know, but just struggling to make a choice right now

That's a good problem to have! Both are incredible places, so you can't go wrong with either. Not sure how much the scholarship is worth but rent and living expenses are much lower in Cambridge. I also don't see the appeal of being in London for another year when your career might be based in London.

Content-wise, LBS is more intense and has more modules to offer, and is an incredible business school, but I don't know what's on offer outside the course. I assume many people going to LBS would already have friends and network in London because most graduates work in London so it might be harder to socialise together outside, but I might be wrong. On the other hand, everyone from my class started from a blank sheet and barely knew anyone in Cambridge inside and outside class at the start, and now we're like a family!

Hi! I applied end of February and my application is still under review by the Department. Does anyone happen to know the number of applicants? And how many will receive a (conditional) offer?

Hi! From what I saw the acceptance rate is ~10% and is one of the most competitive programs across Cambridge!

Hi jaid1996! Same here - I also applied end of Feb, under review by the department. I'm expecting the processing time to be longer, but given the current situation, I'm hoping that eventually, they'll issue more offers ... best of luck

Hi thanks everyone for the replies and help! Let's keep following up the latest situation - there could be changes and lots of concerns about anything, offers, start date, current studies, etc. Let's also support each other during this time of uncertainty, and I'm always happy to chat!
