It might differ between departments/institutions, but I thought I should let you know that I received my unconditional letter of acceptance to the MSc in Social Anthropology at Oxford yesterday (the letter was dated December 9th). In other words: looks like some of us will get early Xmas gifts this year. Truthfully, I am still in shock. Right now I don't even care what decisions I'll hear from LSE and UCL (my other top choices).
Does anyone with experience from the Oxford postgrad admissions process know how long it usually takes between being accepted to your programme of choice and learning about your college acceptance? Thanks!
