Cambridge is half the price of UCL so even if you just abandon the deposit and go to Cambridge you'll still be net positive over just going to UCL
Well the idea of losing money doesn’t make me feel well😓

Hey,

Has anyone here tried emailing to see if there is an update to their application status (a couple of weeks after interviewing)?

Also I’m curious. What would you guys expect to be the proportion of people who are given offers after interviewing?

Do you guys think there is any chance we will hear back soon? Considering that it's the Easter break, I am afraid nobody will hear back for a few weeks.

In case someone is reading this thread who is thinking to apply for 2022 entry, do yourself a favour and apply between October and early November. The waiting is dreadful after that, many of us are waiting for almost 4 months.

I emailed recently as I have other offers with deadlines to respond very soon. The response that I got sounded like at least going to be another couple of weeks until decisions start to come out.

Just saw a new update on the Gradcafe. Seems like they have started looking into our applications.

The offer rate last year was 35%. That's out of all the applicants. They don't release the number of people interviewed.

I'm hoping to apply to PhD programmes next year, and I'm already dreading the whole application process.

True! But does the acceptance rate differ from Home students to International ones?

I applied in December, interviewed in February and have been under review by department since February,
hopefully we hear back soon after Easter break.

Best of luck to you all!

Just realised that we won’t be getting our college choices given that offers will be handed late. Which is another thing that sucks tbh

Indeed, and the college allocation process is another wait, that only starts after you've received an offer.

Does anyone know whether making an open application increases/decreases your chances of getting in or whether it has no effect at all

No effect at all. You are guaranteed a college if you get an offer from the department, and the department doesn't take college preference into account.
