Firm Acceptance of LLM Offers


Can someone explain how firm acceptance works at the postgraduate level? If I firmly accept an offer from LSE, for example, but I have also applied to Oxford and Oxford haven't given their decision yet, does Oxford have any way of knowing that I firmly accepted an offer elsewhere?If so, would Oxford take it into account when considering my application? And how hard is it to get out of a firm acceptance if you change your mind?

Thanks

If Oxford and LSE are different universities with different application systems and dont have access to the other's application process, how exactly do you anticipate that Oxford would know that you accepted a place at LSE?

Getting out of an offer is as easy as accepting it. You just withdraw your acceptance. Universities expect these things as they know that masters students apply to atleast 3 universities for the same course and therefore will ultimately have to reject some offers.

Thanks again, LegalLife! My concern was whether there's some register that all universities have access to where each university logs any students that have accepted offers to them (as is the case in some countries for undergraduate admissions). Glad to hear that that isn't the case.
