Hello everyone -

In case you haven't already joined, there is a facebook group for those who will be starting the BCL and MJur this September:

OK, I've got into both the BCL and the LLM. I have a scholarship for cambridge not for oxford and want to be a barrister. is the bcl really so much better that i should turn down the scholarship? i went to an ex-poly and want to get this decision right so as to maximise cv benefit.

i know this has been touched on before, but any new opinions would be much appreciated.

Thanks Shreya..best of luck for the interview....slightly sad that I wasn't even shortlisted..
Also the clarendon results are out. The clarendon website states:
**Update** 31 March 2010, 10.00 BST: 20 scholarships have been offered on 30 March or by 10.00BST on 31 March. All 20 candidates have been sent a funding offer letter from Graduate Admissions & Funding. The total number of scholarships offered by Social Sciences is currently 26, which includes 6 scholarships from the first selection meeting on 4 March.

A very small number of Clarendon Scholarships in Social Sciences are still pending in the following departments only: Archaeology, Anthropology, and the School of Interdisciplinary Area Studies. These scholarships will be made on or after 8 April 2010. If you applied to a different department in Social Sciences and you did not receive a scholarship offer by 31 March, then your application to the Clarendon Fund was unsuccessful.

I was really worried because I haven't heard from Oxford at all. No letter, no email.... So I wrote them an email today and it turned out that I should have received an offer email on March 18, but I have never received it. So apparently something went wrong.
Now the tough decision begins... Cambridge or Oxford.....

Hi guys,

Check out the group 'Admitted to Cambridge 2010/2011' if you have also applied. Apparently people are starting to receive letters, though some of us are still waiting... It'd be nice to have more people sharing experiences.

Does anyone know when when can we expect to hear from Oxford re college placement and funding? Perhaps anyone who called and asked could share some updates ^_^ ?

I emailed Marianne Biese about this a few weeks ago and she replied saying that scholarship decisions would not be finalised until April and college decisions are not due until the end of May. If I haven't heard anything about funding by the end of this month, then I plan to drop her a quick email...but in any case it appears that we still have some more waiting to do!

Hmm, but this does not make it easier to decide (which we need to do before end of April...). Does this mean we need to take a risk and make our choice in spite of lack of college / scholarship decisions?
Many thanks for your advice / thoughts!

Just to let you know:
I received my offer by the Uni of Ox via email in mid march and the offer by the College about one week later via post.

But I'm still waiting for Cam to let me know which College I'd be allocated to.

And then... it's decision time!

Thanks.
It's Queens, which was my 1st choice, though I didn't really had an idea which one to choose and I guess it won't be such a big deal as a postgrad anyway.

Have you joined the facebook group yet? I'm sure there's someone on there who also holds an offer from Queen's.

Received an offer for Oxford. Corpus Christi College.. As for Cambridge, Wolfson College. But no official letters yet. Unlike GermanGuy, decision for me has already been made. My boss has decided..

Could you share more on what has happened regarding faculty's scholarships? I suppose you don't mean the Clarendon Fund and other scholarships from colleges?
