I haven't seen any posts about the Gates-Cambridge Scholarship and thought I'd create a thread for this year's application cycle. The title is misleading, but I am following the nomenclature of previous threads. Based on last year's GC thread, interview invites were sent the first week of December. Has anyone heard from Gates-Cambridge?

Posting: Feel free to update the thread with admissions status changes and notifications from GC.

I received a rejection email today, if that is any help. However, I’m still being considered for admission. They must have looked at the application, so I’m hoping it is a good sign my application is not yet rejected! It is hard not to read too far into any of this! Haha

I also got the interview invite on Friday, October 6th! I actually received the email from Gates 10 minutes before I received the conditional offer email from my Cambridge department. I'll be interviewing with the Arts panel!

Also a biological sciences applicant who hasn't heard anything. Conditional Acceptance on 11/6. 

What time in the morning/afternoon/evening did people hear back from them for social/arts panels?

A friend of mine got an interview on 12/6 for biological sciences. He applied for a PhD and also noted that people got rejection emails. So maybe everyone that didn't get anything is either an MPhil (if they separated notifications between PhD and MPhil) or on a waitlist. 

For those who got a notification - were you a PhD or MPhil applicant? and for those who didn't get anything - same question.

Anyone hear about the physical sciences panel? Does Gates-Cambridge send out interview invites separately/at different times for the different panels?

Also does anyone know how to know which panel your degree program is categorized within?

I'm an applicant for the MLMI MPhil, received conditional offer a few weeks ago but haven't heard about interview - not sure what panel my degree is categorized in though (perhaps physical sciences?)

They definitely are not notifying by panel nor are they notifying by Mphil/PhD. So, I assume we are on a waitlist or they are sending them out in batches. 

I just relooked at their website and it says that "all applicants notified ----- December 20, 2019"

This might be silly, but my potential supervisor emailed me and told me I wasn’t nominated for Gates but am being considered for other funding (hence my earlier post). However, I haven’t gotten a Gates rejection email. Wonder why?

Thanks. Ya, it looks like it's not good news for those who haven't gotten anything. 

Does anyone know if anybody actually got a Gates rejection email? If not, I assume all those will come out on the 20th.
