Hi! I applied at the end of November, and my application still says "under review by department". Are you the same? :smile:

Hopefully we will hear back soon! But even if we do, going to still be a long wait with funding and scholarships! haha

What’s your background and who did you apply as the potential supervisor if you don’t mind me to ask? 😊 I applied to the supervisor of professor Jostein Hauge btw

Hey! I am currently a third year undergrad at Cambridge reading Land Economy, I haven’t messaged any potential diss supervisors but mentioned some I was particularly interested in - I am quite interested in the Latin American Development areas

Oh you really have a very strong background! I just finished my first master at LSE but don’t know whether this will be helpful for the application at Cambridge, so I was very worried during the long waiting
Thank you! Yours sounds amazing too! Having done a masters already I am sure you'll breeze by! :smile:

Also! I got moved to PAO for the admissions! :smile:

What a big congratulation to you!!! You must be one of the first! Mine is still under review by the department, and really hope to see the change of status

Maybe next year.
I hope the fact we haven't heard yet doesn't mean we are rejected :frown:
I'm so nervous... Now that responses have started coming in

Congratulations! I hope you'll get an offer. Mine is still under review by the department. When did you apply? and did you move directly to PAO?
