Cambridge - which college?


visenya
Having read previous posts on here, it seems that some colleges are not worth applying to because they take few (if any) LLM students (Trinity seems to be one).

With this in mind, do you know which colleges LLM applicants have a relatively decent chance of being accepted by? Other posts suggest Jesus, Queens', etc. A list would be appreciated.

Personally, I would prefer one of the traditional colleges (from the colleges which tend to accept LLM students) which is quite central and close to the law faculty and with decent accommodation. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Traditional colleges that do not accept many LLM students: Peterhouse (2, during my year: 2011-2012),Trinity (1), John's (3), King's (1 or 2).

Christ's, Clare, Corpus and Magdalene do not seem to take many LLM students. Caius also receives too many applications, due to the scholarships they offer.

Traditional colleges that usually accept a relatively high number of LLM students are: Jesus, Queens', Sidney, Trinity Hall. The number of accepted LLM students may also differ significantly from year to year.

At the end of the day, I would also take into account the prospects of getting accomodation on the college site. For instance, Trinity Hall is a great college but the LLM students usually live on a campus outside the centre of Cambridge.

Personally, I think Pembroke and Trinity Hall are great colleges. The best chances for on-site accomodation are probably at Sidney and Jesus.

In any case, avoid applying to Trinity, John's and King's if you want to maximise your chances to get into a traditional colleges.

Thanks for your advice. Which of those colleges do you think applicants have the highest chance of being awarded a scholarship? I understand that Caius and Sidney offer them.

Three questions:

1. What's your class rank?

2. How many people are there in your class?

3. What is the academic qualification/skill/experience you most eagerliy wish you had but you don't?

We need to know your answers to these questions before we can give you any advice.

It's only about what you think you should have pursued in the past.

How can you possibly expect any guidance from others when you can't even formulate an intelligible sentence in English? Good grief..
