Statement of Purpose in Cam
Fri Apr 08, 2005 06:14 AM
Hi,

This is the first time that I`ve applied to Cam.

I have a question about Statement of Purpose in Cam`s application.

When I answered questions 11 or 12 in it that asked me about my purpose of studying in Cam, I answered, but the allocated place was very small for a good answer. At the same time, it was written that no additional pages should be enclosed if the law faculty did not ask for them directly.

I wonder how those who were admitted wrote the SoP, namely did you enclose SoP on additional page with you Cam application?

The cambridge application guidelines specifically tell you not to continue in additional sheets so dont worry you did the right thing.

Hi,

This was precisely the doubt in my mind as well, while finalising the application. But I confined the SOP to be space so provided.

BTW, have you heard from Cambridge ?

I dont think that I`ll enter Cam this year simply because its my first try and I`m sure I made some stupid mistakes, which I am unaware of now.

Although some guys got their admission to Cam already.

But, havent you been accepted to Oxf?

I remember being concerned about this. I think I restricted myself to the space provided as well.

Hi!
I called last week to Cam and they told me they couldn't make me an offer...so that means...a polite way to say REJECTION! :(((((
I didn't use more space for the SoP...but I don't think it makes any difference...
Good luck to you all!!!!!!
BTW I'm sure I made some mistakes in my application, because it was my first one too...

I have been admitted to Oxford and waiting to hear from Cambridge. they are taking too long and it is worrying me because all US schools need a confirmation soon.

If you have enough money, go to the US law schools. I think that job perspective are brighter with US LLM, especially if you can pass a NY bar exam at the end.
