Nothing yet. We're supposed to hear back on/after 13th May, according to the website.

Btw, do you see "pathway review" only on https://ucl.smapply.io/prog/ or also when you click "view" on the thing and go to https://ucl.smapply.io/sub/30134796/

I can see absolutely nothing on the second page except the sections of the application.

I think the dtp team edited the application when they were reviewing. This then updated the "last eidted time" shown on the portal. I click "view" and also "preview" on the portal to check the status and last edited time.

Wait, does that mean they haven't even looked at my application? This is so strange....

Yes, I have to go to "preview" too, but I think for other people it shows up when they click on "view".

Let me see if anything changes when I switch to my PC...

I've applied under the "Urban Studies" (1st choice) and "History and Heritage Studies" (2nd) pathways. But it might also fall under "economic and social history". It doesn't quite fit into any of the given pathways (in that it is interdisciplinary and can fall into quite a few of them).

Which pathway have you applied under btw?

Does anyone have "Group Panel Review Stage"? I have only applied to 1 pathway so hoping that's why I don't have the "Pathway Review - Full Application Stage"

Lol, don't worry, "Group Panel Review" is the 'higher' stage. It's us who should be worried (I am).

Yep, to the best of my knowledge.

I've applied to "urban studies" (1st) and "history and heritage studies" (2nd) pathways. Might get classed as something else, can't really say 🥲
hey guys!

Oh, also - everyone - please let us know when your status changes to "DTP Review".

Just noticed this edit on the website (https://ubel-dtp.ac.uk/esrc-studentships-main-competition/)

"The portal is now closed for new applicants for 2024 entry and full applications are being reviewed by academic teams. Our team will be in touch with applicants by the end of May."

IG they really meant DTP review begins 13th May, and not that the results come out then....
