Hey!!. I'm applying for Cambridge LLM program & MCL program too. So should I send them two copies of Transcripts and recommendation letters for each course or would one suffice? How do I go about. Please help
Firstly, Can one apply for both LLM & MCL program or should we choose only 1.?

Oxford is a little easier to get in than Cambridge. However, if your grades "weren't that great" you won't stand a chance at either of the two.

Sorry to break it to you.

Hey.. I am in my final year of LLB form India. With CGPA of 3.47 till semester 8 (top 10%), Strong LORs(teachers have ranked me outstanding), IELTS of 7.5., internship at 5 NGOs and 3 law firms, attended LSE summer school (A+ grade) & berlin summer school. Do I stand a chance?
Please help :)


Your grades are ok, although there will be many stronger candidates, especially from India.

And there's one more problem:

You only told us about your strengths - but what about your weak points?

Please tell us the three things your strongest competitors at your university have and that you lack. The three things you're most envious of. The three things you wish you had but you don't.

That extra scholarship maybe. That intership at Freshfields or White & Case the other guy got. That journal article you submitted, but got rejected on. That prize on that international moot court you missed.

I'm sure there's something.

What are those weak spots?

Please tell us.

Thanks.

Supporting documents but recommendation online ? I can't find

Hi. I've submitted my application recently. However, I noticed that a language test result must be submitted together with other supporting documents. Failure to do so, the LLM committee will not consider my application. Does anyone know if the English test result is really important? I've emailed Ms. Wade explaining to her my situation. She did mention that failure in providing the test result on time would be a disadvantage for me. I would take the test ASAP but the only earliest available date would be on the 7th December 2013 in my country and results will only be available 13 days after the test date. Really don't know what to do. Hoping that they could do away with submitting the test result on time? and let me submit later? Any thoughts on this would be great. Thank you!

Well sheyf, here's good news for you: Mrs. Wade got it all wrong.

No one cares about English language proficiency at Cambridge at all. It's a law course, not a language course right? So why worry about English?

They only ask for TOEFLs out of pure curiosity. Nothing serious about that. No one here speaks English. They teach you in your native language.

So hand in your scores whenever you like or not at all - they don't care anyway.

Cheers.

There is a certificate that you may upload showing that you are able to give the TOEFL results letter. Check the Q&A section on the admissions page.

Or you could trying applying for waiver. I know my friend got a waiver previously. She had to take some test, and go through a phone interview with them though.

Hey how much weightage does a reference carry if its from a visiting faculty at law school? And what if the faculty has taught you for 4 years and knows you well?
