I had an interview back in January and I still am waiting in purgatory (departmental review). I am wondering if anyone has any thoughts on whether brexit and covid have had an impact on the number of applications?

Impossible to say, but my impression is that they were quicker this year than what has been reported on forums in earlier years. Then again, the forums consist of maybe only approx. 3-5 % of PhD applicants?

No one else at GAO or offer in this chat? It appears that the rejections have started rolling out so those not rejected yet probably have a shot.

I remember finding my own offer email in the spam filter. But the email isn't that important since you'll have an update on the portal anyway, and then you can go check your email for the applicant self-help portal.

Me too! Since I'm 99% sure I will be rejected (my application was horrible!), I believe this is a sign I'll receive the rejection soon.

It's not really a sign of anything. The Gates only shortlists like 100 people or so (from what I gather on the Cambridge Postgrad thread, anyway) and they did that a while ago. They don't even have someone from the law fac (whether PhD, LLM, MCL, MPhil, MLitt) as a scholar every year.

Yes, I knew that! However, I think that since GATES select people based on those who have been already pre-selected by the Department, that might mean I have not been shortlisted.

Perhaps. Wasn't shortlisted for Gates either, so I wouldn't think too much about it. I believe they say no news is good news?

Good morning everyone,

Just to let you know I sent them an email asking about the timing of the decision. They replied saying many applications are still being reviewed by the department, but they aim to get back to us within the next couple of weeks with a result on the outcome.
