No, how about you today?
Nothing, but saw on Grad Cafe 3 people getting into the Mphil, I am guessing they applied either to the MPhil+DPhil or DPhil and got moved to MPhil. I am not sure if this means rejection for whoever hasn't heard back since in previous years they just sent all the acceptances in a single batch.

That's what I thought too. Acceptance last week and trasnfer to MPhil this week...
Haven’t seen anything from people that applied to just MPhil tho
Perhaps it's worth emailing them?
Has anyone received offers for MPhil+DPhil or DPhil? The MPhil offers today are for those applications to MPhil+DPhil, but in previous years there were cases where MPhil+DPhil applicants were transferred directly to DPhil. Shall we keep any hope? :frown:

I am pretty sure that all of them applied to MPhil+DPhil tho.

Aren't decisions for Dphil and MPhil+DPhil taken together though? At least funding-wise

I don't have much hope at this point. Given the previous years, i don't think they will send further acceptances.

Indeed, I've assumed rej. This year is f**king insane, not just for Oxford. I've received rej from almost all my applications. Last year, the number of applications declined significantly, and this year, the number bounced back. My colleague worked in a high-ranked uni (> Manchester, for anonymity), and he's part of the admission team this year. They have rejected RG uni first-class degrees this year, which would be insane and impossible 2-3 years ago.
