really? this is perfect to hear! Morticia thank u very much for the answer, I feel much more relaxed!

Yeah, I am still studying, I have two courses left to graduate, so I guess that, besides the english score, this will be the condition.

Good luck with your application, I hope you hear from them soon, as well !!!

Anybody planning to start their LLM at Cambridge in October 2010 should join this group!

I think you have to be logged into lawyrs.net for that link to work. If it doesn't for some reason just search lawyrs.net for a group called "Cambridge Class of 2011".

Hi everyone,
I received a conditional offer on 6 January. That was a great way to start the New Year.
Anyway, my offer was conditoned to the fulfilment of language requirements, but I have time until July.
What exam have you taken, TOEFL or IELTS? I was planning to take TOEFL, but then I realized that they require a lower grade for IELTS (7,5 out of 9).
As always, any suggestion is welcome!
Happy New Year to everyone.

On the college front, does anyone know much about Trinity College and St. John's College? Among other things, how far away are they from the law school/library?

Thanks a lot

Both are around 20-30 min walk to the faculty. So quite far away. And as far as i know, the admission for Trinity is usually tighter than other colleges.

Guys,

Your college is the most important factor in your whole LL.M. Your whole social life is centred in your college. You hang out with those people there 24/7. I know you can't change your choices but if you get an offer from a college you don't like, try to change it asap by asking for a different one.

This year no LL.Ms were admitted in John's as far as I know and only one in Trinity. No LLMs in King's either.

Thanks for the info. Other than the location (particularly where it is relative to the law school/library), does it really make any practical difference which college you attend? I mean, sure, they all have different histories and whatever, but it's not like that affects your life in any real way. I don't suppose anyone has ever been a member of more than one college at cambridge (since that would enable him/her to offer an informed view on any differences)? It just seems that everyone harps on about how your choice of college is critical to your Cambridge experience, but I have a hard time seeing how/why...

Thanks for any comments.

Believe me, it is. You are only down the faculty a few times a week. The rest of the time you spend in your college. Sure, you have a lot of LL.M friends with whom you spend time but in general the day to day life evolves around your college. Indeed, also the history of your college is significant in a way as an old college provides you with nicer formals for example.

But maybe if you're a less social being then other factors are more important.

I have the luck of having everything: location, nice accomodation, great colleagues, history, ...

gd luck everyone

Great, thanks a lot Cedric. What college are you at? And, at least in your own view, what are, say, the top 3 colleges then?

I'm at Sidney.
In random order: Sidney, Darwin (altho the formal is not very nice, no gowns etc), Christ, Jesus, Clare Hall, Girton (distance), Gonville (great location, bad food),...

To avoid: Homerton (distance), Hughes (distance, very modern)

Only my opinion based on what I heard !

In short, go to Sidney and avoid Hughes :) But u didnt hear me say that... ;)

Does anyone know when we will hear from colleges? Will getting an early offer mean hearing from a college earlier or will they wait until they have all the candidates in front of them before picking?
Also- will we be informed of our progress, i.e get an email if first choice turns us down etc?

Thanks

I would listen very carefully to Cedric when he says that the choice of college is absolutely paramount. He is right, very right in fact. The Cambridge experience for you, when you complete your time there will, hopefully, be about much more than your time in lectures and your results. Your college and your experiences there will bring much more to you as a person than any lectures or your results... Good luck.

Hey Guys, First time I've made a post on here! Yay! I received an offer from Cambridge a few days ago, as did two other people (which I know of) in my course. The conditions are apparently coming in the next few days via post. We all applied around the deadline, and all heard back at the same time. Does anyone know whether there are any unconditional offers made? I know that they say there are, but I'm wondering whether there actually are.

Since one of the conditions is showing that you can pay for the course, I doubt there are any unconditional offers!
