Getting into Cambridge and LSE


freich

I have just completed my LL.M. in International Law at American University in Washington DC. I am contemplating doing another LL.M. in the UK. In particular, I am considering LSE and Cambridge because of their outstanding international reputation.

I realize that competition for these schools must be quite fierce. I was wondering if anyone can venture to guess what my chances would be with a 3.87 GPA (5 A and 3 A-). What other factors do the British schools take heavily into account?

I was just accepted to LSE and I have a B+ average from a Canadian LLB program, good undergraduate marks (A avergage) good references. It doesn't sound like you'll have much trouble getting in. I also applied to Cambridge, but haven't heard back. I'm pretty sure there's tougher competition there.

I got into LSE with a SEcond Class Honours LL.B. and a first class BA (Hons). It does not sound like you will have much trouble.

I'm in at LSE and Cambridge with a First class LLB from London. Strangely I know 2 class mates that were accepted at Cambridge with 2:1 degrees but have still not heard from LSE. At the end of the day I'd rather live in London as I'm not a small town campus life kind of guy and prefer the culture of a big diverse city. Furthermore, LSE is more modern - I find the old buildings at Cambridge interesting, but quite dark and depressing.

James, does that mean you will be attending LSE in the fall? I plan to attend and focus on international business law. If you do head to LSE, will you live in residence or rent a flat?
Cheers!

Hi Ryan,

I will be attending in the fall. I live with my girlfriend in London now, but I'll probably take a room in residence because it's much closer and I would like to be on site. Any idea where you'll be living? I've heard of a good residence for Canadians (I'm Canadian too) but can't remember the location - I'll get back to you with that info.

Ryan and James, I am from Canada as well and am considering attending LSE this fall. I am waiting on scholarships which I should find out about in the next few days. If I do not go this year I will go next year after saving from a year's salary. I so look forward to going as I think it will be a wonderful year.

I believe the Canadian house that you are refering to is the London Goodenough House. The web page is as follows:

ANAT, couldn't say what the average age is, but I just turned 27 (on the 27th of April, no less).

I applied for residence at Grosvenor, Holborn, and Bankside, in that order. For intercollegiate halls I think I put Lillian Penson, Cantebury, and International. Got an email that said I would have a decision in mid July.
