One week after after submitting to all LL.M program in UK universities. I felt so much relieved as it was such a restless experience running around from work to my university and vice versa. Besides, one of the thing that was very difficult to finish is the personal statement(s)
I am very impressed by some universities that have sent me the correspondent email very fast. Especially with LSE, It has sent me an email just a few days ago after submitting online that some of my documents were missing. Then, after tose documents got to them, they replied back to me also very quickly about my document completion.
At this point I will not worry yet where to choose (from eight universities I have applied to) cuz basically It is the time that they 're deciding whether or not to pick me. Definitely, where i would like to go is either UCL and LSE. And since I got a full scholarship I am lucky to not to have to worry about the tuition fee.
Though I was advised by many that in order to go to better ranked universities ( in my case UCL & LSE) I need to write my personal statement very well and I must got excellent recommendations in order to substitute my normal-looking GPA academic performance.
Anyway, It feels so much better finishng this stuff and hopefully I hea the good news soon. Now I may get back to work in peace :-)

Nov 26, I got an offer by the University of Manchester . I was kinda shocked and happy at the same time because the offer was made really fast considering that I have just only submitted on Nov 14. It is, in fact, under two weeks. Lucky that there seems to be no deadline of when I should accept it.
Still,I am looking forward to other universities' results. But i dont think I will hear from any of them till the mid of January, or maybe the mid of December fastest.
When I told my friends about this, they had different but all itneresting comments about it. The first guy thought i would like it because it was the location of the UK's Queer as Folk. I have only seen the US version so far but I may try to find some UK version here. The second guy said congratualtions but he hope that I will more offers from places that have bettwe weathe than Manchester. The last guy just simply said "Manchester United"
