Was it a formal offer or an "informal" offer? Asking because I got an email like 10 minutes ago saying that it was an informal offer and that I would get a proper one next week

Also just received the informal offer mail for MPhil in Economics! It doesn´t say if its unconditional or not. I had applied just before the January Deadline, my last reference was submitted January 19th.

Wow they're coming in hot now then! Did you all apply for the January deadline then? I only applied for the March one. Well done to you all.

I got an informal offer about half an hour ago too. I was worried it was a scam email originally lol. Well done everyone :smile:
Well done you all!! The mail address it was sent by does look fishy, but I guess the domain seems right. (right?) ((someone just asked me by direct message but I can´t reply directly because my profile is too new to send direct messages))
Be proud of yourselves!

Congrats to you all! Have you applied to MPhil only or MPhil + DPhil? Did the infamous upload button disappear beforehand?

Just the MPhil. Im gonna sound out of the loop but what's the upload button? I've heard about this happening but I never found out what it was since I wasn't expecting to hear from Oxford for a few more weeks.

Congrats again! Would you mind sharing your profile / GRE? Applied to the MPhil only as well - feedback anxiety going through the roof now haha

Re upload button. People in the general postgrad thread noticed that when you log in to the portal —> application details —> supporting docs, there is an upload button for additional docs which disappears once a decision has been made

Congrats to those who have received their unconditional offers.

Are all the conditional offers for the first deadline (Jan) already being sent out - as a single batch or is it still ongoing? If anyone might know. Thanks.

Argh, I hope we'll get some news at least. I assume that the informal offers being sent out aren't conclusive and indicative of a singular batch of the pool who applied for the Jan deadline?
Does anyone know if with the official offer there is already a College included, or does that come at a later point?
