conditional offer


clairette

Hello everyone!

I am a french student and I have received a conditional offer of a place at UCL. The problem is that I am not sure to comply with the requirements (I will maybe pass my degree with 12/20 instead of 13/20 which is required). Do you think I should accept the conditional offer?

Thank you

hi ! Congratulations for your admission UCL has a great reputation !!

If you don't have mention assez bien, you must know that you aren't automatically eliminated, you may send your results and they'll make a decision upon them.

To answer your question : it depends where you were offered admission (and what field you intend to study). It seems to me that the LSE and Kings (Oxbridge of course) are really fine, you can choose them without regret.

If you haven't had offers from these universities, I would perhaps accept UCL's offer (and why not accept another one for safety, even if that means paying twice a few euros...)
Good luck and congratulations again !

Thanks for your answer,
I have also received a conditional offer from Durham and Essex (requirement: obtention of my degree) and an unconditionnal offer from Machester.
I am waiting for an answer from King's college.

If I accept UCL and another one for safety, are you sure that I will be obliged to pay both tuiton fees? I cannot change my mind?

I hadn't mentionned Durham and Essex but they're great too !

I was thinking of the money they ask for to secure your place, not full tuition fees, maybe around 200 pounds or so. it's true that my LSE papers don't mention anything of this kind but I suppose it's necessary when you accept the offers they've made (US law schools work that way).
It's worth it, especially if they don't ask you to pay right now, and you may even be able to get it back, who knows !
But even if you can't, UCL is worth trying the bet, the worst would be to decline their offer and then to pass your degree with 13/20, you'd really regret it !
Good luck with your further applications...and your exams in June !

I think that you are rignt but do you know whether I would be legally bound if I accept an offer for instance in Durham (in addition to UCL) and consequently whether they can oblige me to pay the tuiton fees?

clairette,
I think it really depends on what the offer letter says (and possibly other admissions material as well). If the offer is conditional upon you paying the fees by a certain date, then you should be OK to accept and then not pay. That would mean you haven't met the condition, and the offer would lapse.
But if the offer letter says that by accepting you agree to pay the fees by a certain date, or something similar, then you might run into a few difficulties.

I agree with Maple, even though I really don't see them getting you into court forcing you to pay full tuition fees for a program I don't intend to pursue...

Hi! My friend has received offers from Liverpool Edinburgh, and Essex. If I were her my order of preference would be Edinburgh, Essex and Liverpool. Her area is business/commercial law. How would you guys rate these universities?

Vid - you should really start a different thread with that question so that you will get more interest. I promise if you ask it in a new thread I will answer it (because I work in the University of Edinburgh, School of Law)!

Now to the original poster, clairette. From my experience within the University of Edinburgh, it is common for students to accept more than one offer for an LL.M.

Regarding fees, whilst I can't speak for every university in the UK, at University of Edinburgh you are not required to pay your fees until the matriculation stage. I do not think that to be an uncommon practice in Higher Education in our country.
