Congratulations. Do you know how long it takes between the GAO and a formal offer. Also, if you don't mind me asking, how long have you been in the GOA phase.

It's my understanding that it should be around a week between the two events. As of today - same as you!

Current Cambs REF student here... When I applied last year, it was roughly 2 weeks between GAO and formal offer. Don't worry though, GAO literally means an offer will be made - congratulations!

I did submit but not sure if that actually increases your chances of getting in.

I may be the anomaly, but I did submit a research proposal. It was limited and didn't go in depth but it did explain why I chose this particular area and its importance, what I intend to achieve from the study and discussed the implication this study would have in preparing me for a fruitful future career. Hope that helps.

I think they are sending out gradually based on the forum last year

Haven't heard back anything! But I only applied last week on 17 Feb, so the status is still "Submitted", not even department review yet. I did submit a research proposal though!

My application has just changed to "under review by department" today (3 Mar 2021), so I guess as expected they were pooling applications till the deadline yesterday. Probably those who have been on that status earlier would receive some updates in due course! All the best to everybody!! (:

Putting the dates and updates here just for future year's applicants who may need a gauge as to the timeline of this thread.

I am also in the 'under review by department' stage. However, I applied in late November. What is your background?

Hi Physics realm, hopefully you hear something good soon!

I come from a non-conventional background and would say it isn't particularly strong compared to the rest studying RE/Fin now or with RE/Fin work experience. Currently studying Politics and Sociology at a top RG uni with a good 1st in my second year. Zero IB, PE, AM/IM, RE (JLL, Savills, CBRE, CW, KF, etc.) intern/work experience at all.

But have done an internship with a non-UK government agency under a team focusing on industrial land development to research and propose strategies. So that's the real estate side of things because had to look at urban development and built environment (development control, regulation, tender documents, building technologies, etc.), and a lot of random things, government/RE papers by Colliers/ARUP consulting briefs for brownfield sites in HK (?? lol), etc. <-- I say all this but really not an expert and definitely finance/modelling knowledge has to be worked on, hence this course which is perfect!
