What this shows is that roughly 55 - 60% of applicants receive offer from UCL.

At LSE it is 40 - 45%.

Meaning that LSE is more competitive for admission.

How did u get those statistics? Does that mean that a huge amount of people just dont meet their offer/reject them?

I guess a lot of people turn down their offer because (1) they go elsewhere or (2) financial reasons.

Remember, most people who apply to UCL and LSE will also apply to many other elite law schools. A very substantial number will accept offers at Oxbridge/Ivy and reject UCL/LSE.

Hi!

I have a simple and probably stupid question: Does KCL (LLM in Competition Law) require any reference letter? I applied online today however could not find any tab to upload my reference letters or something like that.

Thank you.


Hi, is not a stupid question. KCL only requires a reference letter in extreme cases. I had mines at the time of my application, but they made me a conditional offer regarding English language entry requirements... So I did not used them.

Hey guys, do you think february/march is too late to apply for an LLM program? I will take a shot at Queen Mary, LSE and University of Westminster.

The thing is I'm from Argentina, and I just graduated from Law School, and I still have to process my diploma and get my grades transcripted, as well as taking the IELTS.

Also, do you know if they accept "certificate in progress"?

Thank you in advance!


Hi,
Yes, I applied to QMULon February 24th and recieved and offer last week. Since I am from the Dominican Republic, I only sent them the legal translation of my transcripst and degree certificate of my bachelor on law, but two weeks after I submitted the application they sent me an email asking me for the Spanish version of my documents.

In the FAQ I read that you can apply without having the final academic documentation, but maybe you will receive a conditional offer. So, go ahead!

What I can perceive from the comments of offer holders is that KCL is not as good as compared to LSE or UCL. And about the position of QMUL I cannot really gather much. I have not applied in LSE and UCL, as I did not score well enough in my toefl and the requirements of these two are really high. I hold offers from KCL, QMUL, Glasgow and Manchester. Can somebody guide me more about what other colleges I should apply next and which college is best among all the ones I hold offers from?


Hi! If you are applying for Competition Law LLM, I have a friend from the Dominican Republic who is currently studying in KCL and has told me that it is the BEST choice for competition law. Also, I have been in touch with a girl from Turkey who did a PhD in competition law in KCL who also told me that from her experience, KCL is the better.

I hold a conditional offer from QMUL and KCL (TOEFL scores), and I think I am choosing KCL. However, I am not en expert hehehe...I am making my decision based on reviews, university ranking, program, faculti members, other students commentaries, etc...

Whish left KCL, which was a big hit for the competition program. But they hired Kovacic for the spring semester, so there's that. To be honest, I still think LSE is a better option, but if there is one course at KCL that is worth it, it is the Competition Law LLM.

Hi, can someone please help me out.

I've gotten into UCL & QMUL. I am interested in doing IPR in both of them.

My dilemma stems from the fact that UCL has a better reputation while QMUL seems to be offering a better course with more options than UCL.

Does anyone know more about UCL IPR LLM than the general information on the website and the modules?

Any help on criterias to keep in mind? TIA!

Hi All,

Congratulations to all the offer holders. And best of luck for those who are still waiting for the results.

For LSE offer holders - I was wondering whether someone has created a group on FB? I remember receiving an email from the School saying that there is already an FB group created for 2016/2017 holders but I couldn't find it. If anyone knows: Can you please give me the link?

Also, have you applied for accommodations yet? Where about? Which halls?

Hi !

Congrats on your offer ! Here's the link for the Facebook group : https://www.facebook.com/groups/176943242665489/ . And don't be surprised if it takes a little bit of time to be accepted into the group, LSE is the administrator and I'm guessing a lot of people are requesting it.

I have already applied for accommodations, and got into Lilian Knowles, which is pretty nice because it's ensuite, but I would have prefer a room close to campus... but having a room is already great news haha

You should apply for accommodations as soon as possible, there's not that many rooms available... good luck !

and see you in September !

Hi there,

I'll apply for accommodation soon and i 'd prefer a hall that is: within a walking distance and dedicated for postgraduate students.

See you in September at the LSE.

Hi everyone. I can not find a group for leiden llm applications similar to this group. So, I thought that maybe someone from here can help me. I have completed my application for advanced llm in Leiden university in 15 January. It has been almost 2 months and there is no reply yet. Is there anyone here who also applied to Leiden or know someone did so?
Thanks in advance

@anaktar
I have applied around the same time in January , also to adv. LLM (intl tax law) and haven't heard from them since.

There is one topic here :http://www.llm-guide.com/board/152986

[Accomodation at LSE] Guys, what do you think: Lilian Knowles, Sidney Webb or Butler's Wharf?


I choose Lilian Knowles because it felt like the location was more "central". But they are all pretty good.

I would say Lilian Knowles > Butler's Wharf > Sidney Webb. But it's purely subjective.
