Cambridge LLM 2019 - 2020 Applicants


LSE websites says they're still taking apps... but who knows

I think it is. I read on LSE forums that people are being rejected saying that the slots are full. Even though I don't think that's entirely true, since they can always waitlist or reserve people.

Last year I had applied on February 13, 2018 for 2018-19. I was put in a reserve list - which according to their website means that my application was good but the slots were full. They told me they'd tell me in August after people pay their fees if slots are remaining. Since they did not have any slot, the gave me an option of reinstating my application even before the cycle opened, which I did and got an offer on December 17, 2018.

So I think that the application may be late for LSE and UCL both.

Hi, new here - but have been keeping an eye for the last week to see how progress is going so thanks all for sharing!!

I’m still under review too.

In response to the above post, do people think it’s too late to apply to LSE etc? I thought it probably was but might apply if it’s worth a shot.

I don't think there's any harm in applying to LSE - the website says that applications are open still. You've nothing to lose by applying and might regret it if you don't give it a shot!

It is however quite an expensive application fee.

You could call their admissions department and ask if it's too late to send in an application? They might be able to tell you if the spaces have been filled or how likely it is that they will fill up soon.

Yeah it's the fee that's putting me off :( I'm thinking more about Europe if not Cambridge so I'm not too sad about it - should have done my application months ago anyway! Thanks all.

So I have a question to ask you, guys.
I hold an offer from LSE. Do you think I should take it up this year or stay and improve my CV to reapply to Cambridge for 2020-2021? In general, how do you think LSE compares to Oxbridge in terms of career prospects, prestige etc?

Thanks in advance


I would take LSE if I were you. Although Cambridge is more prestigious, you risk not getting it again next year and waste a year (depending on what you do during this gap year). Also, even if you do go to LSE, you can always apply for another LLM or some other degree at Cambridge next year if you really want it. LSE is great and you won't regret going there if you do decide to go.

That being said, listen to your gut feeling - you're the only one who can make such big decisions for yourself taking into account all factors that may come into play.

To those still waiting: hang in tight; my status 'just' changed to "Awaiting approval by GAO - Awaiting approval by the Central Graduate Admissions Office." I refreshed the Applicant Portal page and found that it changed -- last time I checked was a minute prior :P Keeping my fingers crossed for all of us.

To those who didn't make it -- thank you for letting us know, and I hope you kill it with everything you've got planned ahead of you :) cheers!
